The winless Minnesota Vikings still plan to ride Dalvin Cook in Week 3 against the Seattle Seahawks despite a right ankle injury.

Mike Zimmer classified the injury as a "little sprain."

"You know, at this stage, it's time to get some wins," Zimmer said. "Dalvin's a tough guy. If he can't play, there's a reason why he's not playing. But he makes us go, so we're going to continue to play him."

Cook was injured with 9:52 remaining in the fourth quarter of Sunday's loss to the Arizona Cardinals when he was tackled low by J.J. Watt. The running back sported an Ace bandage on his right ankle during media availability Wednesday, and did not participate in practice.
