Dantzler (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Lions. Dantzler couldn't the practice in even a limited capacity this week, rendering his status for the regular-season finale unsurprising. The third-round rookie started 10 of his 11 appearances for the Vikings, closing the campaign with 46 tackles, two interceptions, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery. Harrison Hand and Dylan Mabin could be pressed into more integral roles at cornerback as a result of Dantzler's first missed game since Week 10.

Dantzler suffered an undisclosed injury during Friday's 52-33 loss to the Saints, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. Dantzler left in the third quarter and didn't return.

Dantzler (concussion) is active for Sunday's game against the Cowboys. The 22-year-old was questionable for Sunday's contest, but he was able to clear the concussion protocol and will be back on the field for the first time since Week 8. Dantzler should return to his starting role for the Vikings.
Dantzler (concussion) is questionable for Sunday's game versus the Cowboys, Kyle Stackpole of Washington's official site reports. Dantzler has been in the league's five-step concussion protocol since a Week 8 win over Green Bay, but he's making progress and was limited in practice this week. The rookie third-round pick will continue to be evaluated over the weekend, and he's expected to start at cornerback if he's officially cleared.
