Dalvin Cook injury: Vikings fans already calling for an Adrian Peterson trade

Detroit recovered the fumble at the Minnesota 29-yard line, scored on a 3-yard rushing touchdown by Ameer Abdullah five plays later, and successfully executed a two-point conversion to take a 14-7 lead. Vikings WRs Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs are second and third in league in receiving yards. Minnesota losing Cook for any amount of time is a killer to the momentum the team had been building, and the longer he's out the worse the issue becomes.

Cook went into Sunday's game with 288 rushing yards, second in the NFL. Cook grabbed at his knee before limping off the field.

He walked off under his own power but was escorted to the locker room by athletic trainer Eric Sugarman.

Cook's injury could potentially mean a bump in Murray's fantasy football value, but a few factors are worth considering before raising your expectations for the 2015 Pro Bowler.

Vikings quarterbacks have yet to throw an interception in 2017, but like with Matt Ryan last week, I expect that to change against the Lions strong secondary.

A non-contact injury usually means an ACL tear, which would end Cook's season. The Lions will now head back home to Ford Field to face the 3-1 Carolina Panthers, who defeated the New England Patriots on Sunday, 33-30.

Rookies Jarrad Davis and Kenny Golladay were on the inactive list, Davis for the second week in a row. Another starter, OLB Paul Worrilow, limped off with a left knee injury on the defense's first play. He's also added 10 receptions for 71 yards on the season.
