MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minnesota Vikings have ruled out cornerbacks Cameron Dantzler and Holton Hill for Sunday’s game against the Detroit Lions. Hill, who has a foot injury, has missed the past three games. Dantzler is listed with a concussion. He was taken to a hospital for evaluation after a collision in last weekend’s game against Green Bay. Mark Fields II, another cornerback, has also been ruled out with a chest injury. Cornerback Harrison Hand is questionable with a hamstring issue.
The Detroit Lions had a staff member test positive for COVID-19 and the team entered the league’s intensive protocol. The unidentified staffer immediately self-quarantined and had not been in the Lions’ practice facility for the last 48 hours. The teams says they will will continue to follow the guidance of the NFL, its medical staff and team doctors as they prepare for Sunday’s game against Minnesota.
