Vikings' Dalvin Cook: Limited to start week

Cook was limited in Wednesday's practice due to a chest injury.

Cook was forced out of Monday's loss to the Seahawks in the third quarter due to what was initially believed to be a right shoulder injury, but follow-up reports have clarified that he's dealing with a chest issue. The star running back said prior to practice Wednesday that he's confident he'll be ready to play Sunday against the Lions, with his ability to play through the injury likely coming down to a matter of pain tolerance. The early optimism surrounding Cook's situation is encouraging, but if he were ultimately limited or forced to miss any time, rookie third-round pick Alexander Mattison would be in store for an expanded role in the Vikings' backfield.
