McKinnon briefly left the game after suffering an ankle injury, but returned quickly.
ABOUT THE VIKINGS (2-1): Minnesota might have been more eager to rush Bradford back from a lingering knee injury if Keenum hadn't thrown for a career-high 369 yards and three touchdowns in last week's 34-17 win over Tampa Bay.
Adam Thielen added 59 yards on five catches Sunday, pushing his four-game total to 348 yards, which is 10-most in franchise history. But that was Keenum's fault for holding the ball too long and circling back into pressure just outside the pocket.
A second-round pick and the Vikings first pick in 2017, out of Florida State Cook won the starting running back job over free agent signee Latavius Murray. "He got there early, but I can't make the call for myself".
Cook was the only Vikings player to reach the end zone - on a 5-yard run in the second quarter - and finished with 66 yards rushing and 8 receiving.
Matthew Stafford and the Detroit Lions finally had a comeback fall short, by just a few seconds and even fewer inches last weekend against Atlanta. "He's one of the finest guys that I think anyone in this business has an opportunity to coach", Lions coach Jim Caldwell said. The Lions half time adjustments moved the team toward a three safety formation. "He started off tremendous, so we hope everything works out for him in the best". "If they're close in the fourth quarter, we're going to have a chance with our quarterback, offense, defense and kicking game".
Abdullah ran the ball hard throughout the game, and almost finished the game with 100 yards rushing.
Ameer Abdullah scored the lone touchdown for Detroit, finishing with 94 yards on 20 carries. "I feel like if we have a solid run game, we know what we have outside and we know what we got at quarterback".
Along with Davis, the Lions ruled wide receiver Kenny Golladay (hamstring) and special-teams standout Don Carey (knee) out for today with injuries. "We didn't tackle in some certain situations as well as I would've liked, but they had their backs to the wall after those first two turnovers, and I thought they fought".
