The New Orleans Saints take on the Minnesota Vikings in London in week 4. Vikings’ running back Dalvin Cook currently has a shoulder injury. He did not practice on Thursday, and his status is certainly in question.

If Cook misses the game, expect RB Alexander Mattison to get a bulk of the carries.

It will certainly change the game plan for Minnesota, and it would ease the running threat for the Saints’ defense. Cook is one of the most dynamic runners in the NFL when healthy.

For the Saints, QB Jameis Winston and WR Michael Thomas missed practice again. Dennis Allen has remained confident in their availability this week, but that may begin to dwindle soon.
