The 2-1 Lions headed into U.S. Bank Stadium to face off against their NFC North divisional rivals, the 2-1 Minnesota Vikings. The gesture certainly didn't appear to be good news, neither did the speed in which the team announced Cook out for the game.

After Minnesota had jumped out to a 7-3 lead in the third quarter, Detroit cut it to 7-6 with a field goal. The NFL's highest paid player in history completed 19 of his 31 passes for 209 yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions. Fox 9's Hobie Artigue reported that Cook walked to the locker room with "nothing noticeable about his stride", as he headed to the tunnel.
Through four games Peterson has just 23 carries for 77 yards with zero touchdowns.
With Cook out, the Vikings will turn to Latavius Murray and Jerrick McKinnon to handle the rushing workload. Another starter, OLB Paul Worrilow, limped off with a left knee injury on the defense's first play.More news: UAE Is Building a Giant Fake Mars City in the Desert
