Report: Vikings RB Dalvin Cook has near complete ACL tear

Minnesota Vikings running back Dalvin Cook’s rookie season is probably over.

NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport and Tom Pelissero are reporting the Cook has “nearly a complete tear” in his left ACL.

Cook suffered the injury in the third quarter of the Vikings’ 14-7 loss to the Detroit Lions.  It was a non-contact injury, and the replay looks awful.

Through three and a half games, Cook was establishing himself as one of the best running backs in the NFL. He came into the game with 288 yards rushing and was averaging nearly 5 yards per carry. Against the Lions, he had rushed for 66 yards on 13 carries and a touchdown prior to the injury.
