Status update: The Saints have announced Cook is questionable to return with a groin injury.

UPDATE: Cook has limped back to the locker room in the third quarter, according to reporter Amie Just.

New Orleans Saints tight end Jared Cook has left Sunday Night Football in the third quarter of Week 3 with an unknown injury, per multiple reports. Cook went into the medical tent and his status is unclear. Mike Triplett described him as “gimpy” after his last catch. Someone went into the tent with medical tape, according to Katherine Terrell, but it’s unclear what specifically the tape is for at this point.

Cook has two receptions for 21 yards. Josh Hill will serve as the starting tight end in his place.
