Vikings’ Dantzler activated from COVID-19 list

Minnesota Vikings rookie cornerback Cameron Dantzler has been activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list and is slated to play against the Green Bay Packers.

Dantzler was on the COVID-19 list for three days and comes back for the Vikings at the right time since the team was thin at cornerback. Holton Hill has been ruled out for the third straight game with a foot injury and Mike Hughes is on injured reserve with a neck injury.
