MINNEAPOLIS — Throughout the preseason, Dalvin Cook has maintained that there’s nothing left to prove with his surgically repaired knee.

The time and effort he poured into his rehabilitation from a torn ACL over the past 10 months allowed him to cross multiple hurdles, he said, so once he finally got in a game, there would be no trepidation.

But there was one thing Cook, the Minnesota Vikings‘ second-year running back, had yet to do in order to pick up where he left off: get tackled. His preseason debut, which came in a 21-20 win over Seattle, provided him the opportunity to cross one last item off his to-do list before the regular season.
