Vikings get back on track, with Cook playing as promised

EAGAN, Minn. (AP) Despite a lingering injury to his collarbone area that forced him out of Minnesota's previous game, Dalvin Cook never hesitated when asked if he'd be able to play against Detroit.

The soft-spoken, hard-running tailback followed through on his promise, helping the Vikings recover from a costly loss in the NFC race with a stress-free 20-7 victory over the Lions on Sunday. Without Cook's productivity and durability this season, it would be difficult to envision the Vikings (9-4) in this position of controlling a spot in the playoffs.

"It's a physical game. I play running back. I've got to block. I take hits, blindside hits," Cook said. "So that's part of the game. You've just got to learn to play through stuff like that. You're going to feel aches and stuff like that, but I'll be good. I'm a tough person."
