  Vikings | Week 3 Minnesota Vikings inactives    Sun Sep 26, 03:03 PM

The Minnesota Vikings have declared OT Christian Darrisaw, DE James Lynch, LB Anthony Barr, RB Dalvin Cook, QB Kellen Mond, DE Patrick Jones II and CB Harrison Hand inactive for Week 3.

Footballguys view: This was expected as the Vikings want to let Cook's ankle issue heal more before using him and they trust Alexander Mattison to carry the load. Cook should be considered questionable for next week's game against Cleveland.
