Vikings video: Dalvin Cook scores 21-yard TD vs Packers upon returning from injury

Dalvin Cook, Vikings

Welcome back, Dalvin Cook. The Minnesota Vikings star ran for a 21-yard touchdown before the end of the first quarter to tie the Vikings with the Green Bay Packers, 7-7, just before the end of the first quarter.

The Vikings running back took the handoff from Kirk Cousins and cut back to his right before bursting untouched through a big hole in the Packers defense.

Cook had been listed as questionable for Sunday’s game due to a groin injury he suffered in the team’s Week 5 loss to the Seattle Seahawks. The injury forced the Vikings star to miss the Week 6 matchup against the Atlanta Falcons, which Minnesota lost, 40-23.

Dalvin Cook averaged 97.8 rushing yards per game before his injury. He had six carries for 44 yards and a 13-yard reception in his first quarter back on Sunday.

The Vikings (1-5) had a bye week in Week 7 and are looking to save their season.
