Minnesota Vikings running back Dalvin Cook is expected to miss Week 5 against the Philadelphia Eagles. He suffered a hamstring injury last week and, even with the three extra days of rest, looks unlikely to play. 


Last week against the Los Angeles Rams, Cook only played 18 snaps to the 41 that Latavius Murray saw. Despite those totals, Cook still had 10 touches to the four that Murray accumulated. 

Regardless, we should expect Murray to soak up nearly all the touches out of the Vikings backfield today against the Eagles. Behind Murray, the only options are undrafted free agents Mike Boone and Roc Thomas.
