Minnesota Vikings rookie running back Dalvin Cook has left the game against the Detroit Lions on Sunday. He left with what the team is calling a knee injury.

While the team may call it that, his injury, when it happened, it did not look good. It was a non-contact injury, which is typically never good.

Typically, when a non-contact injury happens, it usually leads to a torn ACL. He tried to cut on his right leg when his knee buckled.

He immediately dropped the ball and grabbed his knee. His lost fumble, but as the team would say, his health is more important.

Cook was down on the field for several minutes, as he had his hands on his head in a lot of pain. He was eventually able to walk off the field and into the locker room – but that does not indicate that it’s a minor injury.

Prior to leaving the game, he had 13 carries for 66 yards and a touchdown. This season in four games, he had 74 carries for 354 yards and two touchdowns.
