Dalvin Cook is a broken man this week.

On Wednesday, it was announced that the Minnesota Vikings running back had an unexpected family emergency come up and had to leave to go to Miami. As a result, Cook will be unavailable to play Sunday against the Lions as he won’t pass through the COVID-19 re-entry protocols in time.

It would later be revealed that his father had passed away.

In 2020, Cook appeared in 14 games for the Vikings and rushed for 1,557 yards on 312 carries (5 YPC) with 16 touchdowns to go along with 44 receptions for 361 yards receiving and another touchdown.
