Dalvin Cook, RB (MIN)

Logs limited practice Wednesday

Cook (ankle) was a limited participant at Wednesday's practice.

Cook has been plagued by a sprained right ankle since picking up the injury Week 2 against the Cardinals. He's appeared in just one of the Vikings' last three games, combining for 11 touches and 44 yards from scrimmage Week 4 against the Browns. Alexander Mattison has been filling in for Cook during that stretch, but the former didn't do anything more than stretch before going inside at the start of practice Wednesday, per Courtney Cronin of ESPN.com. Officially, Mattison was a non-participant due to a shoulder issue, so Cook actually appears to be the healthier of the two running backs at the moment. As a result, the Vikings backfield will be one to watch closely as the week goes on.
