Vikings CB Cook Still On Roster

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) — The Minnesota Vikings have reinstated cornerback Chris Cook to the active roster. But he won’t be with the team while he deals with a felony charge of domestic assault.

Cook was suspended without pay two weeks ago after he allegedly strangled his girlfriend after becoming angry that she had talked with a former boyfriend.

The Vikings said Monday that Cook will be on the 53-man roster but will not participate in football activities “at this time” so he can focus on his legal situation. The Vikings said they met with Cook, spoke with his agent and agreed on the course of action.
