Dalvin Cook’s hamstring appears to be okay. And if not, then he’s fooling all of us with this 70-yard scamper.

As of this writing, the Vikings have a 17-6 lead over the Lions. And as we know, Cook is back but on a snap count. Right now, he’s averaging 12.1 yards per carry en route to 85 yards. He also has two catches for nine yards. But aside from that 70-yard run, he had just 15 yards on six carries — that’s 2.5 yards per carry.
Still, the Vikings have to be happy to have him back. And if he can spell Latavius Murray like this for the next couple of weeks, all the better. The Vikings are getting healthy at the right time.
