Report: Vikings Dalvin Cook Could Return Tonight Against Steelers



Steelers Dalvin Cook

The Minnesota Vikings will host the Pittsburgh Steelers tonight at U.S. Bank Stadium, and could reportedly see their best offensive weapon return from injury earlier than expected.

According to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero, Minnesota running back Dalvin Cook is “trending towards playing” against Pittsburgh on Thursday Night Football.

Cook is just eleven days removed from a dislocated shoulder, but is listed as questionable after taking first-team reps in practice this week.

The Vikings were planning to not have Cook back until their Dec. 20 matchup against the Chicago Bears, but has positioned himself to return far earlier due to an intense rehab regimen. He will need to receive final medical clearance from team doctors Thursday.

A two-time Pro Bowler, Cook has rushed for 773 yards and four touchdowns this season.
