Vikings' Cameron Dantzler: Ruled out with hamstring injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Vikings' Cameron Dantzler: Managing hamstring injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dantzler (hamstring) did not practice Thursday, Eric Smith of the Vikings' official site reports.

Dantzler was forced out of last week's loss to the Saints in the third quarter. The rookie cornerback will only have one more chance to resume practicing ahead of Sunday's game against Detroit.

Vikings' Cameron Dantzler: Picks up mystery injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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. The team didn't initially reveal what Dantzler is dealing with, but the news should surface in the coming days.

Vikings' Cameron Dantzler: Ready to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Vikings' Cameron Dantzler: Listed as questionable for Week 11
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Vikings' Cameron Dantzler: Another limited session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dantzler (concussion) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.

Dantzler was a limited participant in all three practices last week, and he's maintaining that status to start Week 11. The 22-year-old cornerback still needs to clear the league's five-step concussion protocol, and his status should become clearer as the week progresses. If Dantzler is unable to play Sunday against the Cowboys, however, Jeff Gladney, Kris Boyd and Chris Jones will handle the reps at cornerback.

Vikings' Cameron Dantzler: Downgrades to out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dantzler (concussion) has been ruled out for Monday's game versus the Bears, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Dantzler was originally listed as questionable, but it appears he won't travel with the team and has been tagged as out. The Vikings' cornerback room has been torched by injuries, so expect Jeff Gladney, Harrison Hand and Kris Boyd to start at the position in prime time.

Vikings' Cameron Dantzler: Listed as questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Vikings have listed Dantzler (concussion) as questionable ahead of Monday's matchup with the Bears, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Dantzler left the field on a stretcher two weeks ago, so his progress up to this point is certainly good news. Still, he will need to clear concussion protocol in order to suit up. If he is ultimately unable to go, look for Kris Boyd and Harrison Hand to see increased workloads.

Vikings' Cameron Dantzler: Ruled out for Week 9
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dantzler (concussion) won't play Sunday against the Lions, Andrew Krammer of the Star Tribune reports.

A possible silver lining here is that Dantzler is only being listed with a concussion after previously having a neck injury as well, though that doesn't necessarily mean the neck injury he sustained in last week's win over Green Bay is no longer a factor. Dantzler will still need to pass concussion protocol before he can get back on the field, and his next opportunity to do so will be prior to a Week 10 trip to Chicago.

Vikings' Cameron Dantzler: Can't practice again Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dantzler (neck/concussion) did not participate during Thursday's practice session.

Coach Mike Zimmer was optimistic regarding Dantzler's status Monday, stating that the third-round rookie was "doing well" after being carted off the field with a neck injury Sunday against Green Bay. With back-to-back DNPs in practice Wednesday and Thursday, however, the likelihood of Dantzler being active Week 9 against the Lions becomes slimmer. He must also clear the NFL's concussion protocol. Second-year man Kris Boyd (leg) would be thrust into a more vital role if Dantzler were to be unavailable for the upcoming divisional tilt.

Vikings' Cameron Dantzler: Not yet ruled out for Week 9
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Mike Zimmer said Dantzler (neck/concussion) is "doing well" and has "a chance to play" Sunday against the Lions.

The 22-year-old was transported to a local hospital after being stretched off the field with a neck injury Sunday against the Packers, but it appears he avoided any serious issues. Dantzler's X-rays apparently came back clean, though it's unclear if he cleared the concussion testing. The rookie's participation at practice later this week should provide a better idea of his potential availability this weekend.

Vikings' Cameron Dantzler: Expected to travel with team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Mike Zimmer said Sunday that Dantzler (neck) is expected to join the team in traveling back to Minnesota, Courtney Cronin of ESPN.com reports.

Dantzler had to be transported to a local hospital after suffering a neck injury during Sunday's 28-22 win over Green Bay, and he was also evaluated for a concussion. The rookie third-round pick lay motionless for a time Sunday, but he's now regained full movement of his body. The exact severity of Dantzler's injury remains undisclosed, but it would certainly be a good sign if he's able to avoid overnight hospitalization.

Vikings' Cameron Dantzler: Undergoes X-rays
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dantzler (neck/concussion) has full body movement, underwent X-rays and was transported to a local hospital for further evaluation.

It's good news for the 22-year-old, who left Sunday's game against the Packers on a stretcher with his neck stabilized. The full extent of Dantzler's injuries remains unclear, but for now he appears to have avoided the worst-case scenario.

Vikings' Cameron Dantzler: Leaves on stretcher Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dantzler has a neck injury and is being evaluated for a concussion after leaving Sunday's game at Green Bay. Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

The 22-year-old suffered the injury as he collided with a teammate while tackling AJ Dillon during the second quarter, and he was taken off the field via a stretcher after his neck was stabilized. According to the FOX telecast, Dantzler had movement of his fingers, though the severity of the injury remains unclear. He clearly won't be retaking the field Sunday.

Vikings' Cameron Dantzler: Back from COVID-19 list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Vikings activated Dantzler from the reserve/COVID-19 list Saturday.

Dantzler was considered a close contact to an infected person, but he's been cleared to play and will suit up Sunday against the Packers. The rookie third-rounder started the last three games at cornerback and will return to that role for Sunday's divisional showdown, and he could see a decent dose of star wideout Davante Adams. Dantzler has struggled in coverage and likely can't handle Adams, but he has posted 20 tackles over the last three games to provide solid IDP upside.

October 28, 2020 05:48 PM
Vikings' Cameron Dantzler: Lands on COVID-19 list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dantzler was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday.

The move means the 22-year-old either tested positive for the virus or has been in close contact with an infected individual. It's unclear how long Dantzler will be unavailable, and the Vikings are faced with questions at cornerback with Holton Hill (foot), Mike Hughes (neck) and Kris Boyd (hamstring) all dealing with injuries.

Vikings' Cameron Dantzler: Back in action Week 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dantzler (ribs) won't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Texans.

The rookie third-round pick missed the past two games with the rib injury, but he's ready to retake the field at Houston. Dantzler started and played 82 percent of defensive snaps in the season opener and should have a heavy role Sunday with Mike Hughes (neck) sidelined.

Vikings' Cameron Dantzler: Will sit for second straight week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dantzler (ribs) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Titans.

Dantzler will miss a second consecutive game after drawing the start in Minnesota's season opener. He'll hope to heal up in time for the Vikings' Week 4 trip to Houston.

Vikings' Cameron Dantzler: Sitting out Week 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dantzler (ribs) has been ruled out of Sunday's game versus the Colts.

Dantzler started at outside cornerback in Week 1 and played 84 percent of the defensive snaps, recording four solo stops. His absence will likely open the door for rookie first-rounder Jeff Gladney to log nearly a full workload. Dantzler will aim to shake off the injury before Week 3's matchup versus the Titans.

Vikings' Cameron Dantzler: Misses practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dantzler (ribs) was a nonparticipant during Wednesday's practice.

Dantzler had a rough NFL debut in Sunday's loss to Green Bay, surrendering seven catches on all seven passes sent his way. It's unclear how the 2020 third-round pick suffered the injury, but it's serious enough to force him to miss valuable practice time. If he's forced to miss Week 2 with the injury, Jeff Gladney and Harrison Hand could be in line for an uptick in snaps.
