Article Summary:

Minnesota Vikings star running back Dalvin Cook will play against the Pittsburgh Steelers barring a pregame setback Thursday night, just 11 days after dislocating his left shoulder, a source told ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler.

A healthy Cook figures to be a key offensive contributor for the injury-plagued Vikings, who have lost four of their past six games – including Sunday’s last-second loss to the previously winless Lions – and are in danger of falling out of postseason contention.

Cook, 26, has rushed for 773 yards and four touchdowns in nine games this season and also has 27 receptions. He is the NFL’s seventh-leading rusher despite missing three games this season and is fourth in the league in average rushing yards per game at 85.9.

The Vikings already have ruled out wide receiver Adam Thielen and rookie offensive tackle Christian Darrisaw for Thursday night’s home game against the Steelers.
