Cook Out, Mattison Questionable | Final Vikings-Packers Injury Report

EAGAN, Minn. — Saturday's Injury Report - Running back Dalvin Cook (chest) is officially listed as out for Monday night's game against the Green Bay Packers at U.S. Bank Stadium.

Backup rookie running back Alexander Mattison (ankle) will have a chance to play as he was listed as questionable on Saturday. Mattison was a limited participant in practice on Saturday. The rest of the players on the Vikings injury report were not given a designation and are expected to play.

If Mattison can't go on Monday night, Vikings running back Mike Boone, who rushed for a pair of touchdowns during last week's game against the Chargers will be in line for the start.

"It'll feel good if that's the case. I could finally get a start and try to make the most of it," Boone said on Saturday. "It's Monday Night Football, man. As a kid, that's what you dream of."

The Vikings can also lean on veteran running back Ameer Abdullah and full back C.J. Ham in the backfield.

For the Green Bay Packers, tackle Yosh Nijman (elbow/triceps) did not practice on Saturday and was ruled out for the game. Defensive lineman Dean Lowry (ankle) was ruled questionable for the game after he was a full participant in practice on Saturday.
