Vikings Running Back Listed As Full Participant In Thursday Practice


The Minnesota Vikings pulled off an epic win in their divisional clash with the Detroit Lions in Week 3, and while the result was no doubt a positive one, one of the biggest talking points coming out of the game was the shoulder injury suffered by superstar running back, Dalvin Cook.

Following the game, Cook was categorized as 'day-to-day' with the injury, but on Thursday, the Vikings listed him as a full participant, and ahead of two very winnable games that could take this team to 4-1 and a strong position in the NFC North, this is great news for Vikings fans. He's not yet out of the woods, as running backs take plenty of damage, and Minnesota may want to be extra careful with their star, but if he's good to go on Sunday, they'll no doubt go into their clash with New Orleans as the favourite.

When healthy, Cook is arguably the best running back in the NFL, and if he can stay healthy in 2022, along with all the other weapons Minnesota have gathered, they could be a Super Bowl dark horse in the NFC, and if he's available on Sunday, this team should continue their hot start to the season.
