As we sadly remember, Cook was out in week four for the rest of the season against the Detroit Lions when he tore his ACL in a non-contact play trying to avoid Tavon Wilson. At the time of his injury, Cook was among the league leaders in rushing and appeared to be a serious contender for Offensive Rookie of the Year, but sadly it was not to be.
Cook’s recovery has come along faster than expected, as it has been 10 months since his injury. In June he was he was participating in mini camp and he is expected to participate in full workouts for training camp. It’s going to be exciting to see the added dimension that Cook brought to the Vikings’ offense return when he gets next to Kirk Cousins in the backfield.
