Vikings plan meeting to discuss future of suspended CB Cook

The Minnesota Vikings have some questions to answer about their defensive secondary entering their bye week. First and foremost on that list: what to do with suspended cornerback Chris Cook.

Coach Leslie Frazier wouldn't dismiss the idea that the Vikings would release Cook, who was suspended without pay after he was charged last week with felony domestic assault for allegedly trying to strangle his girlfriend. Frazier would only tell reporters that he'd meet with team officials Monday afternoon to discuss "which direction we're going to be heading" with Cook.

"We have a lot of things to talk about, a lot of things to talk about as we go forward," Frazier said of Cook's future.

Cook also could face discipline from the NFL.

"It will be reviewed under the league's personal-conduct policy, which includes league discipline when warranted," league spokesman Greg Aiello wrote in an email to

Frazier also indicated that he expects cornerback Antoine Winfield, who has missed four games with a neck injury, to play Nov. 14 against the Green Bay Packers. He sidestepped a question about who would start opposite Winfield -- Asher Allen or Cedric Griffin -- saying only that he had to "take a real hard look" at every phase of the team.
