The Minnesota Vikings will have Cook on the field in Houston, after a six-game absence because of a broken right arm.||||||| Coach Leslie Frazier said after Friday's practice that Cook will play Sunday against the Texans. Cook was placed on injured reserve with a designation to return, and this is the first week he's eligible to be reinstated to the active roster. The Vikings didn't immediately make a corresponding move to make room. This is the third straight season that Cook has missed significant time. He had knee problems his rookie year and legal trouble last season.

The Minnesota Vikings say cornerback Chris Cook's acquittal on assault charges has opened the door for him to return to the team. Cook is entering his third NFL season and will be counted on to help a Vikings secondary that struggled during last year's 3-13 season.||||||| Cook was acquitted Thursday of all charges that he assaulted his girlfriend in October. The team suspended him when the charges were levied. They later reinstated him to the active roster but told him to stay away from the team while the court process played out. In a statement issued after Thursday's verdict, the team said it "will meet with Chris in the near future and believe he deserves the opportunity to rejoin our organization."

Frazier sidestepped a question at his news conference about whether Cook could be released.||||||| The Vikings have their bye this week, but Frazier said "all indications are" cornerback Antoine Winfield will be back from a neck injury to play Green Bay on Nov. 14. Winfield has missed four games. He said "without a doubt" he'll be on the field against the Packers.

The 24-year-old Cook was arrested early Saturday and released from custody Tuesday on $40,000 bail.
