Vikings CB Dantzler suffers neck injury
Minnesota Vikings rookie cornerback Cam Dantzler left on a stretcher during the first quarter of Sunday’s game at the Green Bay Packers with a neck injury.
Dantzler was attempting to make a tackle when he absorbed an inadvertent thigh to the head from teammate Anthony Harris. His head tilted back as he fell to the ground.
“CB Cam Dantzler has a neck injury and is also being evaluated for a concussion,” the team said. “Further updates will be provided when available.”
Vikings players knelt around the 22-year-old as he received medical attention. Medics kept Dantzler laying flat as they positioned him onto a backboard.
The Vikings selected Dantzler, a Mississippi State product, in the third round of the draft in April. He had 24 tackles in four games (all starts) entering Sunday’s game. He was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list on Saturday.
