Edwards fined $10,000

Vikings defensive end Ray Edwards is $10,000 lighter this week after a pair of fines from the NFL stemming from the Vikings' 24-10 win over the Detroit Lions.

Edwards was fined $5,000 for unnecessary roughness – "he unnecessarily shoved his opponent," the league said. Edwards was the only player fined from the third-quarter scuffle that ensued after Jared Allen said he was speared by quarterback Shaun Hill.

Edwards also was levied another $5,000 fine for roughing the passer when he struck Hill "in the head area," according to the league.

Vikings center Ryan Cook was also fined $5,000 for an illegal clip, welcoming him back into the offensive line rotation.

CB Chris Cook: ‘I didn't make any mistakes'

Rookie cornerback Chris Cook appeared to have a good outing in his first action of the season. Cook was sidelined for the final game of the preseason and the first two games of the regular season following meniscus surgery.

On Sunday, he was used in the nickel defense, inserted for Antoine Winfield, who slid inside to cover the slot when the Vikings went with five defensive backs. Cook was pleased with performance.

"Good game overall for me and everybody else. I didn't make any mistakes," Cook said after watching film. "… Conditioning was a little bit of a problem towards the end of the game when they got in that two-minute drill. Over this bye week I'm going to get my conditioning up and come back in better shape."

Cook finished with four tackles and a pass defensed.

"Everybody can get better. I feel like with me, just working on my technique," he said. "Just trying to be a perfectionist every day. Just trying to get better every day."
