According the Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer, second year running back Dalvin Cook will be held out of this weekend's game against the Buffalo Bills with a hamstring injury.

Cook left last week's game in the second half with what he called "cramps" in Green Bay. Those cramps turned out to be a little more leading Cook to miss practice all week and leading to his absence from this weekend's game.
Cook did however tell reporters that he plans to be fully ready to go by next Thursday for the Vikings game against the Rams in LA.
