In what is a sure blow for the Vikings’ secondary, corner Chris Cook suffered a broken wrist during the Vikings 36-17 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The injury happened in the second quarter as Cook went in for a tackle on running back Doug Martin. Cook immediately grabbed his right arm/wrist area and jogged to the sideline. He later went into the locker room for X-rays.
Cook, a third-year corner out of Virginia, has struggled with injuries and a domestic dispute case through his first three seasons in the NFL, limiting him to only 20 games. Cook is quietly having his best year as a pro, recording 28 tackles, 1 sack, and 5 pass deflections on the season.
The Vikings will rely on A.J. Jefferson and Josh Robinson to help fill the absence of Cook, who is expected to miss a significant amount of time.
Frazier was unsure how long Cook will be out saying, “Sometimes you can cast it. I don’t know enough yet.”
