Minnesota Vikings running back Dalvin Cook suffered an injury to his right shoulder in the third quarter of Monday Night Football‘s 37-30 loss to the Seattle Seahawks and did not return.
Cook was injured on the first play of the Vikings’ second drive after halftime. He received a handoff at the 8:56 mark and Seattle defensive end Rasheem Green punched the ball free, forcing a fumble. Cook was tripped up and fell to the ground, where he remained for several minutes and looked to be in severe pain while being tended to by athletic trainers.
“He just hit me right on what I had when we played the Broncos [on Nov. 17]. He hit me right on it when he went to punch for the ball. It was kind of like a different feeling. It was different. But he got me in a good spot.”
