The NFL is home to big hits every weekend, but ironically, it’s the non-contact injuries that scare the fans and players the most. Unfortunately, Minnesota Vikings running back Dalvin Cook is the latest to go down without any contact.
In Week 4 against the Detroit Lions, Cook attempted to juke out a defender and begin running to his right during the third quarter. But just as he did, his left knee appeared to buckle, and Cook immediately grabbed at his leg even before getting hit.

It’s too early to speculation the severity of the injury, but Twitter is already expecting the worse.
Dalvin Cook's reaction suggests that whatever is wrong with him isn't minor.

Dalvin Cook appeared very emotional on sidelines, near tears, from an injury. Walking gingerly off w/trainers now. Knee appeared to buckle

Cook had 66 rushing yards and a touchdown before exiting. Minnesota selected the former Florida State running back 41st overall during the second round of the 2017 NFL draft.
