Takes over backfield late

Mattison carried the ball seven times for 28 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 28-24 win over the Lions. He added one reception for 16 yards.

Mattison settled into his typical change-of-pace role and had only four carries through three quarters. However, he served as the Vikings' lead back in the final quarter of the game after Dalvin Cook exited with a shoulder injury. Though Mattison didn't get a ton of volume, he made a large impact with a 16-yard reception and trip to the end zone from six yards away. Cook was diagnosed with a dislocated shoulder after the game, so there is a chance that Mattison will get lead-back duties in a Week 4 matchup at New Orleans.
