Dalvin Cook was on his way towards being a possible rookie of the year candidate. Cook, 22, rushed for a franchise record 222 yards through his first three games. His season will, unfortunately, end in week four of the 2017 NFL Season. Well, at least it looks that way.

Ian Rapoport has reported that it appears Cook has a torn ACL.

Latavius Murray and Jerick McKinnon are the next man up to replace the rookie tailback. Cook was taken in the second round of this past draft in what is looking like a strong running back group. For years the Vikings leaned on Adrian Peterson. Now they lose another reliable player in Cook.

 

 

The good news for the Vikings is quarterback Sam Bradford should return at some point this season. Minnesota is now 2-2 on the season after losing to Detroit on Sunday.
