Dalvin Cook won’t play in the Minnesota Vikings’ season finale after the death of his father, James Cook.

The Vikings confirmed that James Cook died.

Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press said Cook was flying to Miami after his father’s death and won’t play on Sunday against the Detroit Lions. James Cook was 46 years old, Tomasson said.

“It's tragic news,” Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins said, via Tomasson. “I just found out this morning. ... Very sorry to hear that.”

The Vikings were eliminated from the playoffs with a loss last week. Cook made his second straight Pro Bowl this season, rushing for 1,557 yards and 16 touchdowns.
