Vikings get good news and a lot of bad news on the Wednesday injury report

The Vikings had to play the Lions in Week 5 without their star running back.

Minnesota RB Dalvin Cook, who suffered an ankle injury in the Cardinals game in Week 2, has been pretty limited since then.

Well, Minnesota got some good news Wednesday: Cook was limited in practice. Sure, it’d be better for the Vikings if Cook earned the “full” designation, but the team should settle for Cook practicing in the mid-week.

Here is the entire Vikings injury report so far:
