Minnesota Vikings backer Dalvin Cook will not be in the last game of his lineup next Sunday.
The running back has left the club’s entourage due to the death of his father, who was 46 years old.
Cook has joined his relatives in Miami, according to the NFL Network. He will therefore not be available for the series of COVID-19 screening tests he must undergo to play the last game of the Vikings’ season, a duel against the Lions in Detroit.
The Minnesota team were ruled out of the NFL playoffs last week, following a 52-33 loss to the New Orleans Saints.
After 16 weeks of activity, Cook is at the top of the Goodell Homestay in yardage with a total of 1,918 yards. He has also crossed the goal line 17 times.
