Things quickly went from good to bad to worse for the Vikings in the third quarter today against the Lions.
After Minnesota had jumped out to a 7-3 lead in the third quarter, Detroit cut it to 7-6 with a field goal. On the Vikings’ ensuing possession, it went bad.
Vikings running back Dalvin Cook took a handoff, appeared headed toward a big gain, but then got hit just as he was cutting. Cook’s knee buckled and he fumbled, and the Lions recovered.

It didn't look good for Cook who went down without contact, fumbled the ball and immediately grabbed the knee area. We'll continue to update but if Cook were to miss time, Murray and McKinnon would see larger roles in the running game.
