Former Florida state running back and current Minnesota Viking Dalvin Cook was taken off the field on Sunday after injury knocked him out of the Vikings’ loss to San Francisco.

Cook, who entered this weekend’s game with the 5th most rushing yards in the NFL, had a tough rushing game against a rejuvenated 49er defense, but his versatility kept the Vikings in as he had 6 catches for 64 yards.

Dalvin was injured at the end of the third quarter by Kevin Givens. As soon as he was hit, he grabbed his shoulder and lay on the ground for a few minutes before being swept away.
