  • Vikings' Za'Darius Smith: Listed as questionable for Sunday

    Smith (knee) is questionable for Sunday's contest against the Saints.

    Smith didn't practice Wednesday or Thursday, but he returned as a limited participant Friday, giving himself a chance to suit up in Week 4. Vikings head coach Kevin O'Connell said Smith got reps in team period and did a little bit of everything during his limited session, and while the pass rusher is trending in the right direction, he's going to be a true game-time call ahead of Sunday's 9:30 AM ET kickoff. If Smith is ruled out, D.J. Wonnum, Patrick Jones and Luiji Vilain would be candidates for increased snaps opposite of Danielle Hunter.

  • Vikings' Andrew Booth: Unlikely to play Sunday

    Booth (quadriceps) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's contest against the Saints.

    Booth is in line to miss a third consecutive contest after picking up a quad injury during the season opener. The rookie second-round pick played exclusively on special teams during his NFL debut, so his absence hasn't had an impact on Minnesota's defensive game plan.

  • Vikings' Dalvin Cook: Off injury report entirely

    Cook is off Minnesota's injury report Friday and will play Sunday versus the Saints, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

    Cook returned to practice full Thursday, and he won't be required to miss any time despite suffering a dislocated shoulder Week 3. The veteran running back isn't unfamiliar with such injuries, or playing with a harness to protect his shoulder, and he's previously displayed an ability to do so without requiring a lessened workload. In any case, fantasy managers can safely consider Cook on track for his usual top running back role Sunday versus New Orleans in London.

  • Vikings' Dalvin Cook: Practices fully, should play Week 4

    Cook (shoulder) was a full participant in Thursday's practice.

    After being diagnosed with a dislocated left shoulder following last week's win over the Lions, Cook looked to be in legitimate danger of missing time, but his ability to practice fully Thursday largely assuages those fears. Though Cook is now on track to suit up Sunday against the Saints in London, he'll be playing with a harness to protect the dislocated shoulder. Cook isn't unfamiliar with playing through the injury, most notably doing so last season following a one-game absence and proceeding to log 27 carries for 205 yards and two touchdowns in a Week 14 win over the Steelers. Fantasy managers shouldn't expect Cook to reach those lofty heights again this weekend, but he should at least be able to handle his usual lead role while Alexander Mattison serves as his top complement.

  • Vikings' Dalvin Cook: Spotted at practice Thursday

    Cook (shoulder) was present for Thursday's practice, Kevin Seifert of ESPN.com reports.

    Per Seifert, Cook wasn't doing much during the portion of the practice open to the media, so it remains to be seen how the Vikings officially report his participation level. The team's top running back, who didn't practice Wednesday, is considered day-to-day ahead of Sunday's game against the Saints in London.

  • Vikings' Andrew Booth: Doesn't practice Wednesday

    Booth (quadriceps) didn't practice Wednesday.

    Booth has missed back-to-back games after picking up a quadriceps injury during the season opener. The extent of the issue remains unclear, but the rookie second-round pick has yet to practice since suffering the injury and doesn't appear to be trending in the right direction ahead of Week 4.

  • Vikings' Za'Darius Smith: Not practicing Wednesday

    Smith (knee) didn't practice Wednesday.

    Smith played a season-high 61 defensive snaps during the team's Week 3 win over the Lions, but he presumably picked up a knee issue as well. His absence Wednesday is concerning, especially given he's coming off a season-long back injury, but the veteran pass rusher will still have two more opportunities to practice before Minnesota needs to make a decision on his status for Week 4.

  • Vikings' Harrison Smith: Full practice Wednesday

    Smith practiced fully Wednesday.

    Smith sustained a concussion during the team's Week 2 loss to the Eagles and was unavailable for Week 3. However, he's since cleared concussion protocols and is in line suit up against the Saints on Sunday. Through his first two appearances this season, the veteran safety has recorded 20 tackles and one interception.

  • Vikings' Dalvin Cook: Not practicing, day-to-day

    Cook (shoulder) won't practice Wednesday and is still considered day-to-day, Kevin Seifert of ESPN.com reports.

    Both Cook and head coach Kevin Stefanski referred to the running back as day-to-day before Wednesday's practice, with Cook noting the Vikings would "figure it out" come Sunday. It's not the first time he's dealt with a subluxation of his left shoulder, and while the injury cost him a game last season, the Vikings hope Cook can face the Saints in London this Sunday while wearing a harness. If not, Alexander Mattison will take over the starting job and most of the backfield work.
