Minnesota Vikings running back Dalvin Cook out for the season

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.

Former NFL MVP Adrian Peterson was cut loose by the Minnesota Vikings this past February, thus becoming a free agent.

After speaking with numerous teams, including the Green Bay Packers, New England Patriots, Oakland Raiders and Seattle Seahawks, “All Day” opted to sign on with the NFC South New Orleans Saints.

Today, Peterson spoke about how excited he is to play behind legendary quarterback Drew Brees and how he feels about playing his former team, the Minnesota Vikings, in Week 1 of this year’s NFL Regular Season.

“Envisioning myself in the backfield with Drew Brees it was like ‘Wow, what will opposing teams do?'”

As for playing his long-time team the Minnesota Vikings in Week 1, Peterson says it was just meant to be.

“It was meant to be.”

Peterson and the New Orleans Saints will invade Minnesota for Monday Night Football on September 11.

The Minnesota Vikings have decided to part ways with former NFL MVP and legendary team running back Adrian Peterson.

“All-Day” was due to count for an $18 million hit against the Vikings salary cap in 2017, which would have been twice as much as any other running back in the NFL.

The seven-time Pro Bowler and 2012 league MVP, Peterson, spent 10 years with the Minnesota Vikings where he established himself as one of the greatest running backs of all-time.

In ten season with the Vikings, Peterson played 123 games rushing for 11,747 total yards and 102 touchdowns scored.

With that said, Peterson could still end up back in Minnesota, this if he doesn’t field any better offers from other organizations.

Teams apparently considering going after Peterson include the New York Giants, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Oakland Raiders.

Ronda Rousey (12-2 MMA) made her highly anticipated return to the octagon in the main event of last night’s UFC 207 fight card in Las Vegas where she challenged current UFC women’s bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes for the title she used to posses.

Unfortunately for fans of “Rowdy”, the fight didn’t go her way whatsoever, as she was overwhelmed by a barrage of early punches from “The Lioness” which led to a shocking 48-second TKO loss.

The setback marked Rousey’s second in a row and also served as her second career defeat. Ronda had suffered a shocking head kick knockout loss to Holly Holm in her most previous octagon appearance at UFC 193 in November of 2015.

Today, former UFC light heavyweight champion Jon “Bones” Jones took to Twitter where he offered Ronda some advice and added that Rousey he believed Rousey would be a champion for the rest of her life. Check it out:

Jones believes that Ronda can still beat 90% of the women’s bantamweight division and added that her next career move will truly determine her legacy.
