Minnesota Vikings running back Dalvin Cook dislocated his shoulder during Sunday’s loss to the San Francisco 49ers, a source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Cook is expected to miss at least the next two games – Sunday at the Detroit Lions and the following Thursday against the Pittsburgh Steelers – with the hope being he can return the next week for the Monday, Dec. 20, game at the Chicago Bears, the source told Schefter.
Vikings coach Mike Zimmer would not disclose the nature of Cook’s injury Monday and said his star running back was “Day-to-day.”
“That’s what they’re telling me,” Zimmer said. The running back lost the ball in the process of being tackled and immediately grabbed for his chest with his right arm when he hit the ground.
