CB Cook Progressing Well From Knee Injury

Posted by Mike Wobschall on October 12, 2010 – 4:46 pm

The Vikings got bad news on Tuesday when head coach Brad Childress confirmed that CB Cedric Griffin was lost for the season because of a “significant” knee injury. But Childress also delivered some good news regarding another CB on the roster.

Rookie Chris Cook, who impressed during training camp and the preseason, is working his way back from a 2nd knee injury as well and Childress indicated he was progressing to the point where he might be able to play this Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys.

“He was out here moving around this morning and certainly he is feeling more comfortable right now than he was at this point from his procedure on the other side,” Childress explained. “It just remains to be seen. He’ll get out there and practice this week and we’ll just see how he comes back tomorrow from today’s movement, how he practices this week and there’s a chance he makes it to this weekend.”

Cook suffered a knee injury at the end of the preseason that kept him out of action, but he made it back to the field for Week 3’s game against Detroit. But then he injured the other knee against Detroit and has been rehabbing ever since, a process that kept him out of Monday’s game against the Jets.

Having Cook back in the lineup would be a nice boost for a Vikings secondary that will face a talented WR corps this weekend that includes Miles Austin, Dez Bryant and Roy Williams along with TE Jason Witten. Cook is a bigger body than Antoine Winfield, so he could be used to muscle up with Roy Williams or Dez Bryant.

    I ATTENDED THE GAME VS. THE JETS AS A FULLY CLAD VIKINGS FAN.

    LIVING IN NJ, I LISTEN TO ALMOST EVERY REX RYAN NEWS CONFERENCE.

    IF ANY VIKINGS FAN WANTS A TASTE OF HOW & WHY THE JETS AS A TEAM – AND THEIR FANS – ARE SO MOTIVATED TO WIN & EXCEL, JUST GO TO NYJETS.COM AND WATCH THE REX RYAN NEWS CONFERENCE. IT IS WHAT IS MISSING FROM OUR VIKINGS THIS SEASON.

    FOR GOD’S SAKE WHY DO WE HAVE TO WAIT FOR THE 2nd HALF OF GAMES FOR OUR TEAM TO COME TOGETHER?? CAN’T THE COACHING STAFF MAKE THEIR ADJUSTMENTS ON THE FLY?? I’M SORRY TO SAY THIS BUT BRAD CHILDRESS, IN MY OPINION, IS JUST A GLORIFIED OFFENSIVE COORDINATOR – AT BEST! I KNOW THAT COACH ANDY REID VETOED BRAD CHILDRESS ON MANY OCCASSIONS, SO HIS SUCCESS AS THE EAGLES OFFENSIVE COORDINATOR WAS DUE TO A MAJOR PART TO ANDY REID.

    OUR SAVING GRACE THIS WEEK MAY BE THAT IN WADE PHILLIPS, WE’RE FACING ANOTHER – AT BEST – GLORIFIED ASSISTANT.

    WE NEED GREATNESS, POISE AND A PROACTIVE INNOVATOR AND LEADER IN BOTH OUR HEAD COACH AND QB OF THE FUTURE.

    EVEN THOUGH I HAVE GREAT ADMIRATION FOR SPIELMAN, I’M VERY FRUSTRATED THAT WE WEREN’T AS PROACTIVE AS WE COULD HAVE BEEN DURING THE PRE-SEASON IN ACQUIRING A WR, O LINEMAN, CB, YOUNG QB OF THE FUTURE, ETC. WHAT DO I MEAN BY PROACTIVE? JUST GO BACK AND REVIEW ALL THE MOVES THE JETS MADE. WHY DO
    I CHOOSE TO LOOK AT THEM? BECAUSE I BELIEVE THEY ARE NOW THE BEST TEAM IN THE NFL.

    HOPEFULLY OUR SEASON WON’T BE OVER IN THE NEXT 2 WEEKS! I JUST WANT TO WIN – NOW!!!

    i heard Chilly has a bad leg too, lets put him on the PUP list and bring in another coach. i can’t understand why after 2 weeks of rest, Chilly again brings in the team not ready to play. if we drop 2 more games, season over !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    i agree with paul m …going into this year after last season this was a team whose future was not next year,next couple of years but right now .championship opportunities in all sports dont come along easily but when they do you have to have to take full advantage of it…our management did not make this team even stronger than last year… did not make the right moves in the players they let go and who they signed… again i am hoping i am wrong and we can turn the season around but we may regret in a few years what could have been if we had the right people in charge of the team….the dallas game will be a very difficult one i believe as we will have major problems if we cannot pressure romo…the cowboys are loaded with talent and if they decide to show up we will be life and death to win. we can win the next 4 games but just as easily we can lose those games.. turnovers,special teams and penalties will decide those games..we cannot give dallas any gift points as i believe their offense will score a few points on their own…allen has to be better as he has been dominated one on one so far

    I feel bad for Cedric. Hang in there. Randy Moss will be here the whole week instead of a few days so I feel positive about our team. Brett and Moss will get it together. Losing Sidney for a few months and Chester for good really has showed how great they were for our team. Adrian has not fumbled this year. Percy looked great and healthy again. The last quarter showed we still have our greatness and talent so now we just have to find a way to start with it. We need to protect Brett like last year. And, tackle and make a hole for Adrian to run for a touchdown! He is great when you work as a team and help him. Jared, last year you were great! Find a way to get the quarterback again please. You have the talent! Win Vikings! We are rooting for you!

    cook is just like the safety from the colts, he will miss over half the games every season from different injuries

    why we didn’t pick Mays in the draft is beyond me, another mistake by our oh so good coach Chilly

    This really blows. All of Ced’s hard work down the drain. Hope Cook will stay healthy the rest of the season.

    Are the Vikes looking to bring in a new corner?

  13. By fire childress on Oct 12, 2010 | Reply

    yeah, i knew it was a serious injury when ced threw his helmet when he went down. our draft picks this year were simply put, awful. please bring in cowear, the old Steelers coach in to relace Chilly

  14. By fire childress on Oct 12, 2010 | Reply

    i hope they bring in another corner, not many available though that are halfway decent

    yes, that would be 2 dream coaches, will never happen though, Chilly messed up our superbowl run this year, so now Minnesota congress will vote no to new stadium. Chilly cost us our team !!!!!!!!!!!!

    Will they bring back Marcus sherels for
    corner or sign another backup tight end like we don’t need?

    I saw a more agressive offense in the second half which scored a lot of points. That has to do with play calling. I think Brad plays it safe in the beginning of games and then when he sees they need points he lets Brett air it out more and Brad becomes less conservative. I think Brad needs to look at the play calling that gets touchdowns and stick with that from the beginning of the game.

    (Griffin Out For Season With Knee Injury Again) , boy our season just keeps getting better and better, hey wilf family boy did you guys make a mistake this season or what the money you guys put out for a winning season and it’s turning out to be a losing season !!!!send favre home because Favre will get suspended at least 4 games and let Tjack finsh out the season because there will be no playoff’s for the vikings this season sad, sad but true…cowboys beat vikings this sunday 31-17.

    I don’t think the vikings are going to cut it this year, missing griffin I don’t see how we can stop the passing attack next week they have big wideouts. The pass rush is not getting there fast enough. Ray got a clean sack against the jets but other than that teams are shutting down jared. We cant beat the saints close is not enough playoffs is a long shot the secondary is depleted. I see teams attacking our secondary more in the upcoming games we only have winfield and allen cook will be back soon but other than that there is no depth at corner. Get rid of sheppard and allen both are dime corners at best. Yes our defense held the jets from a lot of big plays but you have to understand the jets are not that good at passing. We cant beat teams that we will see in the playoffs therefore were out of luck.

    Sounds like the Vikes are bringing Cb Frank Walker in. He is 5.11 he is a 7 year vet. Hope he is better than sheppard.

  27. By Rick James on Oct 13, 2010 | Reply

    I dont think Frank Walker is any better than anything we have. However, he did go up against all the Packers recievers, and rodgers every day in practice…That has to account for something…

    You think the Vikings will beat the Cowboys? Wrong, we owe you from last year and you will not be able to stop our offensive attack. The Jets should have scored more points, but they settled for field goals…this will not happen Sunday. Mary Robiinson said your team is not very good and I have to agree with her.
    She said the Vikings will be 1 and 4 when this game is over. She is never wrong. Cowboys 31 Vikings 24

    SuperBowlChamp09 come on… If you’re going to act like that, why don’t you go back to commenting on youtube with all the other idiots. Paul is exactly right. We don’t demand greatness from our coaching staff. Childress is a poor excuse for a coach…. he just isn’t good. We have the talen right in front of us and he doesn’t know how to use it. Poor time management, extremely poor play calling, and overall poor leadership.

    not only that, he blew the draft big time. it’s time to get a new coach now !!!!!!!! bring in Dungy !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    What kind of Vikings Fans are you guys!? Maybe if you guys just stopped b**ching and start supporting instead. This team might actually get better. Stop BICKERING! You think a team can get better through bickering? No, it’s through support and having faith in one another. How can you be a Vikings fan and say they’re going to lose? Let’s give them some positive feedbacks. They need positive comments to get better. Not stupid negative comments that aren’t going to do us any good. Every team has the potential to become a great team. Our team has the weapons and everything. If you guys didn’t notice, the team started to come into place more at the end of the Jets game. If your a fan…. stop bickering and start supporting like a REAL FAN. Teams have made it out of hopeless times like this. NOW LETS BELIEVE IN OUR VIKINGS TEAM THAT THEY CAN TOO! COME ON LETS SUPPORT THEM LIKE REAL VIKINGS FANS SHOULD THIS YEAR!!!

    I knew it would be rough at the Jets game but the language was completely unbearable as was the drenching rain.
    I am so thankful that our fans are a class act.
    Frampton let it roll off his back as did others.
    Looking forward to coming back to the dome, old as it may be, there is a feeling of comfort there just like an old pair of shoes.
    Don’t be fooled by the glitz and glamor. It’s hollow and cheap.
    It’s a game and each team want to win. I am just glad I don’t have to endure this kind of junk at home.
    Our defense has been playing their hearts out and it’s time for the offense to get the lead out and take some action.
    Sure would like to see coach correct his mistakes as well.
    Proud of our team!!!
