Dalvin Cook: I appreciate the team for believing in me

Article Summary:

When the week began, Vikings running back Dalvin Cook was not expected to play against the Steelers because of the shoulder injury that kept him out of last Sunday’s loss to the Lions but Cook wound up making it back to the lineup sooner than expected.

Cook got in a pair of limited practices before getting the green light to play against Pittsburgh while wearing a harness to protect his shoulder. Neither the harness nor the shoulder did anything to limit his effectiveness. “There’s no holding me back. Just turn me loose. I just appreciate them for believing in me, just trusting in who I am.”

Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer called Cook a “Great competitor” after the game and he’ll get some extra time to rest his shoulder before getting back on the field against the Bears on Monday night in Week 15.
