Vikings RB Dalvin Cook avoids serious injury to shoulder

SEATTLE -- Minnesota Vikings running back Dalvin Cook suffered an injury to his right shoulder in the third quarter of Monday night's 37-30 loss to the Seattle Seahawks and did not return.

Cook was injured on the first play of the Vikings' second drive after halftime. Upon receiving a hand-off at the 8:56 mark, Seattle defensive end Rasheem Green punched the ball free from Cook's arm, forcing a fumble. Cook was tripped up and fell to the ground, where he remained for several minutes and looked to be in severe pain while being tended to by athletic trainers on the field.
