EAGAN, Minn. (AP) — The Minnesota Vikings have conducted their first official practice of the season, and Dalvin Cook was a full participant.

The NFL’s latest running back contract conundrum appears to be on track for resolution without a public clash between team and player.

Cook has entered the final year of his rookie deal. He says his agent and the team are “working hard” on a new contract. He has no plans to hold out without one.

The 2017 second-round pick had his first Pro Bowl selection in 2019. He was seventh in the league with 1,654 yards from scrimmage in just 14 games.
