Terrible news for Minnesota Vikings (2-2) fans.
Dynamic running back Dalvin Cook will miss the remainder of the season after suffering a torn ACL in Sunday’s 14-7 loss to the Detroit Lions.
“I expect him to come back and be the same that he was,” Coach Mike Zimmer told reporters of Cook.
Cook had put together an amazing opening few games recording 354 yards on the ground while averaging 4.8 yards per carry.
The second-round back out Florida State had also hauled in 11 receptions for 90 yards this season.
The Vikings, who have been without starting quarterback Sam Bradford since Week 1, will now turn to running backs Latavius Murray and Jerick McKinnon to pick up the slack on offense.
