The injury sees him ruled out for Week 13 action.

Dalvin Cook Injury Update

Cook officially tore his labrum while dislocating his right shoulder on Sunday. He dealt with a similar injury in 2019 before returning for the playoffs.

Is Dalvin Cook Going to Play This Week?

Dalvin Cook has been officially ruled out in Week 13.

When is Dalvin Cook Coming Back?

Cook could land on the injured reserve list, which would rule him out for three weeks at minimum. Minnesota is reportedly still figuring out how much time their star will miss.

When the RB suffered a similar injury in 2019, he sat out the team's two remaining regular season games before coming back for the Wild Card round. Even if Cook misses 2-3 weeks, he could still return for the Vikings' final stretch of games before the playoffs, if everything goes as planned.
