RB: Dalvin Cook

Dalvin Cook (ankle) was upgraded to "full" in Thursday's practice.

There is no longer any doubt as to Cook's Week 6 status. Even with the Vikings' bye lurking in Week 7, Cook will be out there against the Panthers, and any time Cook is out there, he is an elite RB1. That being said, Alexander Mattison could still see little more work than usual after his recent hot play as the Vikings maybe attempt to keep Cook healthy.
