Vikings' Dalvin Cook has torn labrum, expected to miss at least two games

Vikings running back Dalvin Cook dislocated his left shoulder on a third-quarter fumble during Sunday's loss to the 49ers, and he could miss some time following the results of a MRI on Monday morning.

Cook tore the labrum in his left shoulder, according to NFL Network. A source familiar with the injury said a labral tear almost always accompanies a dislocated shoulder, meaning the result of Cook's MRI was widely expected, but the injury continues the running back's history of shoulder issues dating back to college.

He had surgery on his right shoulder at Florida State in 2016, and missed the final two games of the 2019 regular season after tearing the labrum in his right shoulder.
