In the draft so many people have not even heard of Chris Cook. Now with the news that he will in all likelihood be missing the opener against the Saints. This is because he suffered a torn meniscus in his right knee Saturday in the Vikings' preseason victory over Seattle.
Cook was performing great in the preseason games. He has a nose for the ball and was tackling well, something that Vikings DBs have struggled with in recent years. Cook was the leading man the start at the CB spot opposite of Antonie.
This news is especially hard, because the Vikes just traded away veteran DB Benny Sapp in exchange for wide receiver Greg Camarillo. It will be something to see what the Vikes do with their depth chart now for the Defensive Backs.
Cook sure has impressed me so far, but I guess I will have to wait a bit til the fans will see him again.
