If fans of the Minnesota Vikings are hoping for an injection of life into the NFL’s worst rushing offense in Week 5 Youth Everson Griffen Jersey , it doesn’t sound as though they should expect it from second-year running back Dalvin Cook.According to Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press, Cook is “still healing” from the hamstring injury he suffered in overtime of the team’s Week 2 tie in Green Bay.After sitting out of Week 3, Cook had 10 carries for 20 yards in the first half of Thursday night’s loss to the Los Angeles Rams, but did not see the field in the second half. . .something that he says was by design.The Vikings’ entire rushing game has suffered during the first four games, as their 63 yards/game average is the worst in the NFL, and their 3.5 yards/carry average is third from the bottom. They’re also the only team in the National Football League that has not scored a rushing touchdown through the first quarter of the season.Cook came into the season with high expectations placed on him after missing much of his rookie season with a torn ACL following a hot start.Offensive coordinator John DeFilippo sounds more optimistic about things than Cook does, if that’s any consolation.We’ll have to see what happens, but if the Vikings want to regain any semblence of offensive balance in an effort not to have Kirk Cousins throw 50 passes every week, a healthy Dalvin Cook couldn’t possibly hurt things.The Vikings’ Adam Thielen is unstoppable Stefon Diggs’ tweet about Adam Thielen sums up how we all feel about him. While most of the world was late to the Thielen party http://www.thevikingsfootballauthentic.com/xavier-rhodes-jersey-authentic , we know how special is and what an asset he is to the WR corps in Minnesota. If Thielen continues to ball out the way he has been, according to Bring Me The News sports he will be on pace to an incredible 150 catches, 1,885 yards and 10 touchdowns. What now, officially, sets him apart from his competitors is that Thielen now holds the record with five consecutive 100+ yards games to start the season since the AFL/NFL merger. According to Fox Sports North he is tied for first with 66 targets, first in receiving with 31 catches, first in first downs with 31, and ranks second with 589 receiving yards. Most people have been sleeping on Thielen because he hasn’t been a flashy top 10 ESPN play of the day kind of guy. But he is always where you need him to be and he does what you need him to do. Case in point Youth Harrison Smith Jersey , his first touchdown for the Minnesota Vikings against the Carolina Panthers.Thielen was able to go up the middle completely unblocked and score the touchdown off of a blocked punt that he created. It was a good play, but it didn’t get the attention it deserved because wasn’t a one hand grab like Odell Beckham, Jr’s touchdown against the Dallas Cowboys. But it was a play that got the job done. And despite what the highlight reels tell you these are the plays that matter.And Thielen continues to be that reliable work horse. You can always find him on the field and no matter who is in his face or how tight the space is, he is going to try his damnedest to make that catch. And as of late that isn’t hard. While Thielen continues his domination of the NFL, there is plenty to look forward to. If he can stay on pace he will surpass the 2012 record set by Detroit Lions’ Calvin Johnson, who currently holds the record for eight straight 100 yard plus games according to Fox Sports North.All the attention and accolades that Thielen is getting are well deserved and overdue. We all knew what a great player he is, we just didn’t think it would take everyone else so long to catch up.
