Original story follows.
We’ve had a scary moment at the end of the first quarter between the Minnesota Vikings and the Green Bay Packers, and it looks pretty bad for a promising rookie.
Cornerback Cameron Dantzler, who was removed from the COVID-19 list prior to this game, suffered a nasty injury on a tackle attempt late in the first quarter. Dantzler was part of a group of Vikings that brought down Packers’ running back A.J. Dillon, and appeared to take a blow to the head. He laid on the field not moving and was eventually taken off on a stretcher with a backboard.
We don’t have any further word on what’s happened to Dantzler, but the entire team was out on the field as he was taken off, and it didn’t appear that Dantzler had moved much after being put on the stretcher. The TV crew reported that he was moving his fingers, however, which is a positive sign.
This is obviously a fluid situation and we don’t have much right now, but we will have more on it as we know more.
Once again, Vikings’ rookie cornerback Cameron Dantzler was stretchered off the field after suffering a head or neck injury late in the first quarter against the Green Bay Packers. When we have more news, we will pass it along to you here.
