Running back Dalvin Cook eventually made an early exit in the Vikings' 34-33 loss to the Cardinals due to a sprained right ankle suffered when Cardinals defensive lineman J.J. Watt tackled him low in the fourth quarter.
"He just got a little ankle sprain," coach Mike Zimmer said.

The story went on to say: Cook, who finished with 148 yards from scrimmage, popped up and walked gingerly toward the sideline before dropping to the turf. Vikings trainers helped him to the sideline, where his right ankle was taped up. Cook returned, taking two more handoffs, but his movements were labored, and he was eventually replaced by Mattison on the final drive. It sounds like Cook has a chance to be OK as we head into Week 3. Mattison is worth picking up as a handcuff, however, if he's still on your wire.
