Cook could return to a headlining role once he’s recovered from his hamstring injury, but he’s played only 18 snaps since he was injured in Week 2, and has been ruled out for Sunday’s game against the Jets a week after a rocky pregame workout forced the Vikings to scratch him.Cook was a ful]]> 5336871 Sun, 21 Oct 2018 8:48:01 EDT Minneapolis Star-Tribune <![CDATA[Latavius Murray is plenty capable for Vikings]]> Dalvin Cook will miss his third-straight game with a hamstring injury on Sunday against the Jets.

While we’d rather have Cook than not, the Vikings are in good hands with backup running back Latavius Murray. Murray is coming off of a 155-yard game against the Cardinals in Week 3.

In 11 starts for Murray last season (his first with the Vikings), Murray ran for 693 yards and six touchdowns.

“I’ve said it a million times, I like Latavius and the way he approaches the game,” Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said Friday. “Typically he’s not a one carry every quarter guy, he’s a guy that needs to get the football some.]]> 5335561 Fri, 19 Oct 2018 19:48:02 EDT Vikings Wire

FF Today's Take: Cook missed practice on Thursday and only did stretching on Friday before leaving the field with the trainer. In his absence, Latavius Murray should see the majority of the workload at running back for the Vikings against the Jets. The Jets rank in the middle of the pack, allowing the 15th most fantasy points to running backs.]]> 5335254 Fri, 19 Oct 2018 14:45:01 EDT
<![CDATA[Vikings RB Dalvin Cook ruled out vs. Jets]]> Dalvin Cook will be held out with a hamstring injury on Sunday against the Jets in New York.

Overall, it’s his fourth game missed with an injury he suffered in Week 2 against the Packers.

Dalvin Cook has been ruled OUT for Sunday @ Jets.

Cook did the same thing Thursday and was listed as a non-participant on the injury report. His status as a full participant Wednesday created some optimism, but it now appears the second-year back could be headed for another game-time decision ahead of Sunday's matchup with the Jets at 1:00 PM ET. We'll have another update Friday afternoon when the Vikings release their final injury report of the week.

Cook left practice during the period open to reporters, but apparently it wasn't due to a setback to his hamstring injury. By participating in two full days of practice, it increasingly looks like he could return this week against the Jets after missing three of the last four games.
