Minnesota Vikings CB Chris Cook will not play in the Vikings' third preseason game on Friday against the Chargers due to concussion symptoms. Cook will be replaced in the lineup by Chris Carr or Josh Robinson.
Cook suffered a concussion in the Vikings' second preseason game against the Bills and has yet to return to the practice field. Cook is in his third year, but has only played in 12 regular season games to this point. He missed ten games with two knee injuries his rookie season and then missed most of last season due to off the field issues. Cook faced two charges of felony assault but was acquitted of all charges this March.
Cook had been having a good training camp and was winning back the respect of his teammates prior to his injury, but now is stuck waiting to get back on the field again.
