CB Cook fined $26,250 for contact with official
Minnesota Vikings cornerback Chris Cook has been fined $26,250
for contact with an official, per NFL guidelines.
Cook told reporters Wednesday his agent has filed an appeal with
the league. He said he realizes he has to keep his composure in
those situations and added a ”guarantee it will not happen
Cook was upset in the third quarter Sunday, accusing Chicago
wide receiver Alshon Jeffery of offensive pass interference and
complaining there was no call during the incompletion. Two plays
later, Jeffery beat Cook for a 46-yard touchdown, and Cook
confronted side judge Laird Hayes, inadvertently touching his arm.
That drew him a 15-yard penalty and an ejection from the game.
The Vikings rallied to beat the Bears 23-20 in overtime.
