Minnesota Vikings running back Dalvin Cook carried 21 times for 71 yards in Week 9 against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Olabisi Johnson Has Two Catches And A Score

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Olabisi Johnson caught one of two targets for a four-yard touchdown in Week 9's loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen (hamstring) has re-aggravated his injury and is questionable to return in Week 9's game against the Kansas City Chiefs.
