Offensive coordinator Mike Heimerdinger named Cook the third tight end on the depth chart to start the season, behind Bo Scaife and Craig Stevens. On December 19, 2010, Cook earned his first career start after Bo Scaife was benched as a possible result of comments he made about a divided locker room.
