Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook (chest) was listed as limited on the team's estimate injury report for Wednesday, Dec. 4.

  Vikings | Dalvin Cook OK    Tue Dec 3, 08:22 AM

Updating a previous report, Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook (shoulder) was held out as a precaution after leaving the game Monday, Dec. 2, with a bruised clavicle.

Footballguys view: Cook insisted after the game that he would be good to go in Week 14. It was a concerning hit, because Cook was hit on the same spot that he was the previous week, and it was a painful hit. Watch his practice status on Friday just to double check. Alexander Mattison is a must-own handcuff for Fantasy GMs.
