Too early for that

No, it's not.  It's pretty rare for a player to go down like that and it end up not resulting in a torn ligament.

ZIMMMER tells @gregcoleman8 they're worried about the ACL with Dalvin Cook. Will get an MRI tomorrow.

Dalvin Cook just left the #Vikings locker room on crutches, knee in a brace.

You are probably correct but Cook owners should wait for the final verdict before losing their minds.

That's almost certainly a torn ACL. Sucks. He was off to a great start.

Sad for it to end like that.  I was really down on him, so I don't own him.  My opinion of him has changed much, so I wanted to see if it would work out all season.

Cook is special. Him & Hunt will be battling for years to come.

In fact, if Bradford hadn't gotten hurt, I believe Cook would've given Hunt a run for his money as the top rookie RB.

Too late. 

Soon as I saw the play I knew. Combined with TyMont's injury this wee has been just ducky.

Don't understand why Bradford's injury is responsible for Cook's injury? :unsure:

 In the league I got hunt in the sixth, I took cook in the second and AJ Green on the first. Along with Tate, Martavis Bryant, and Parker, plus Ty Montgomery in the third, I'm feeling pretty stacked. 

:pickle:

I bet you feel like NEVER playing this game again,after losing Cook and Ty since this post.....Never brag about your stacked teams bc the Fantasy Gods will not like you.

Cook doesn’t have Hunt’s vision, but he is a better athlete. Hopefully, he doesn’t lose any speed/quickness with this MAJOR knee injury.

Not following you, LOL.

I'm simply saying with Bradford, Cook has more FF potential. He was doing well with Keenum in there, but Bradford makes a huge difference to that offense.

That's always a worry, but ACL injuries, especially with younger players, have a great prognosis.

I wouldn't expect any loss of speed/quickness if this is a typical ACL tear.

I've played FFB for close to 2 decades. Ive always been cursed by "fantasy gods". I wasn't bragging, I was happy I had a what seemed to be a good team for the first time in a couple seasons. 

and supposedly I only lost TyMont for part of one game. 

But I appreciate you rubbing it in my face that two of my players got hurt. That's super nice of you. I don't feel like quitting FFB, but I will never see another of your posts again now that you're on ignore.

Seemed like you were implying Cook got hurt because Bradford got hurt.

Guess I misunderstood. No worries.

The initial prognosis is it’s a complete tear, which would be more severe than a typical acl repair.

I've been playing since 92 or 93...I'm not rubbing anything in...I was just making a statement about the Fantasy Gods,bc I learned long ago,even if I have a good team,I don't say a thing about my teams,until a Championship is won..Then I talk about my team,bc by then the Fantasy Gods can't do a thing about it....I'm going to lose this week most likely in my big money league bc Jones got knocked out with his hip pointer....Those are the breaks of playing this GAME.....

Not really. Either way the ligament is replaced.

I was actually referring to a complete tear. They do amazing things now with knee injuries. If it's just an ACL tear, his chances of returning to 100% are excellent. At his age, you should expect a 100% recovery. Countless RBs have come back from ACLs & have been as good as ever.

Look at Todd Gurley & what he's doing now. Heck, take Nick Chubb & his mangled knee. It took an extra season, but even after that catastrophic injury, he's getting close to 100%.

Guys. I like you all but superstition is stupid. 

Yeah - the idea that I could cause Cook and Montgomery to get hurt because I posted something on a discussion forum complimentary to them - it's just dumb.

Nope, not true. The question is whether any other ligaments were torn as well. If there are other ligaments torn, that complicates things and generally leads to a longer more difficult recovery.

The fact that he may have torn his ACL shows that he has no wiggle, right? :rolleyes:

Neuro vascular, surrounding ligaments and tendons, meniscus, and musculature damage are the questions. 

The vast majority of ACL replacements are complete tears. That's not unusual at all and no more major than an incomplete tear if replaced. 

 

Nothing about the mechanism looked unusual.

Yeah, the first blurb I got was that Cook suffered an "ugly" knee injury, but upon watching it, his knee didn't give too much at all & seemed relatively stable.

Not gonna lie fellas. This one hurt bad. Not just for FFB, I really liked this kid and loved watching him play. 

Sucks that this is part of the game of football.

Vikings are friggin cursed.  I'm lucky I can play Martin as my rb2 but it kills my RB depth.  This is just the beginning though RBS always start dropping like flies as the season rolls on.

I guess I'm gonna drop cook for Murray but honestly I don't know if I would start Murray unless I was super desperate.
