The Minnesota Vikings rookie running back Dalvin Cook has been ruled out for the season with an apparent complete tear of his ACL, according to head coach Mike Zimmer. Zimmer has also stated that Cook will be having surgery on his knee.

Cook was off to hot start on the season and on his way to a fiery break out year before he got hurt. Before his unfortunate injury, the rookie Cook rushed for 354 yards and  two touchdowns, averaging 4.8 yards per carry. Cook was also utilized in the passing game catching 11 passes on 16 targets for 90 yards.

The former Florida State University star went down in agony during the third quarter in the week four match up against the Detroit Lions. Cook went to stick a juke move and his knee buckled. He immediately reached down for his knee, fumbling the ball.

Cook was clearly in pain. There was no contact on the play. But Cook was in a lot of pain as the trainers approached him.

Running back Latavius Murray, a free agent addition, will now see more action on the field with Cook out. So far this year, Murray has not made much of an impact since signing with the team. He has only rushed for 21 yards on 7 carries. With Cook out, he will get the bulk of the carries.
