Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports Vikings RB Dalvin Cook (shoulder) is "trending towards playing" on Thursday night against the Steelers. (Source: Tom Pelissero on Twitter)
Fantasy Impact: This is shocking. Cook dislocated his shoulder 11 days ago but has been taking first-team reps in practice and wants to play in Week 14. Pelissero notes that he'll be playing with a harness tonight if the medical team gives him final clearance. Alexander Mattison will likely still be more involved than usual, but it's suddenly a murky situation. Official inactives will be announced 90 minutes prior to kickoff.
Fields Yates with ESPN is reporting that Chargers' wide receiver Keenan Allen has been placed on the COVID-19 reserve list. (Source: Field Yates on Twitter)
Fantasy Impact: As of now, we are not sure if Allen has been placed on the list for a positive test or due to close contact. Not knowing his vaccination status either, there isn't much to do now except wait for more information to become available. The Chargers face off against the Giants next Sunday at 4:05 ET and there is still a chance that he will be able to play in that game.
