With injuries mounting on their offensive line, the Vikings are bringing in a former Packer, as the team has signed Grant Cook, a 6-4, 318-pound guard that can also play tackle.

The Cowboys have lost their first-round pick for a bit, as cornerback Morris Claiborne left Friday’s practice to undergo an MRI on his knee.
