Wild's Cooke still sidelined with lower-body injury
Coach Mike Yeo says there was ''definitely potential'' of a long-term absence for Cooke. Yeo declined Tuesday to specify the nature of the injury, saying he was waiting for more information before revealing a timetable for Cooke's recovery.
Cooke has missed 22 games over nearly two months early in the season because of a hip flexor muscle injury. Yeo says this injury is different but might have resulted from overcompensation for the other condition.
