    Detroit Lions’ D’Andre Swift unlikely to play vs. Minnesota Vikings

    Allen Park — The Minnesota Vikings and Detroit Lions are both looking like they’ll be without their star running backs for Sunday’s NFC North matchup. 

    Vikings starter Dalvin Cook, a Pro Bowler each of the past two seasons, was knocked from this past weekend’s game against the San Francisco 49ers with a shoulder injury. According to multiple reports, he suffered a torn labrum and dislocated shoulder and will miss multiple weeks. 

    Prior to the injury, Cook had amassed 975 yards from scrimmage in nine games, averaging 4.5 yards per carry and scoring four times. He also missed the matchup with the Lions earlier in the season due to an ankle injury.

    In that game, a 19-17 Vikings win, backup Alexander Mattison rushed for a career-high 113 yards on 25 carries, while chipping in another 40 yards and a touchdown on seven catches.
