Earlier: The Minnesota Vikings just turned the ball over in their own territory, but they may have greater concerns than just ball security. Dalvin Cook was hurt on the play.
Cook was responsible for the turnover when he fumbled. After the play, the third-year running back was shaken up and stayed down on the field.
Wide receiver Stefon Diggs also got banged up when someone clipped his leg on the same play, but Diggs walked to the sideline and could be seen running. He is set to return on the next drive.
As for Cook, he immediately headed to the locker room. The ESPN broadcast declared him questionable to return with a shoulder injury.
Dalvin Cook suffered a shoulder injury, the Vikings announced. Said he's questionable to return, but I think I'd be surprised if he comes back after seeing his reaction on the field and the fact he went straight off the field.

After battling injuries his first two seasons, Cook has had a tremendous 2019 campaign while remaining healthy. It would be a shame to see him have to miss time here.
We’ll keep you posted on Cook’s status. If he can’t go, expect more of Ameer Abdullah and Alexander Mattison.
Currently, Seattle leads the Vikings 20-17 in the second half.
Update: Cook is back on the bench, but we’ll see if he actually comes back in the game.
