Commanders' Cameron Dantzler: Claimed off waivers by Washington
Washington claimed Dantzler off waivers Monday, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Dantzler was waived by Minnesota on Friday and will head to Washington ahead of the new league year. The 2020 third-round pick has totaled 149 tackles, 17 pass defenses, three forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries and three defensive touchdowns in 35 appearances across his first three NFL seasons. He figures to compete for a rotational role in Washington's secondary during the offseason.... See More ... See Less
Cameron Dantzler: Done in Minnesota
The Vikings waived Dantzler on Friday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Dantzler began his career in Minnesota back in 2020 and drew nine starts last season, but he was ultimately part of the reason why the Vikings sported a league-worst pass defense. After having registered 50 tackles and five passes defensed in 2022, Dantzler will now look for playing opportunities elsewhere.... See More ... See Less
Vikings' Cameron Dantzler: Hindered by injuries again in 2022
Over 10 regular-season games, Dantzler (ankle) registered 50 tackles (45 solo), five passes defended and one fumble recovery in 2022.
Dantzler reprised his starting role from the end of the 2021 campaign, playing at least 89 percent of defensive snaps in all but one of the first seven games in 2022. However, he missed eight of the final 10 games of the season while battling an ankle injury, which limited him to a career-low 10 regular-season contests. The third-year cornerback still has yet to play a full season in his NFL career. With Minnesota's most productive cornerbacks Patrick Peterson and Chandon Sullivan both set to become free agents this offseason, Dantzler could be in line for the team's top cornerback spot heading into the final season of his rookie contract in 2023....

Vikings' Cameron Dantzler: Iffy to play Sunday
Dantzler (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bears.
Dantzler sat out Week 16 with a tweaked ankle before returning in time for last Sunday's loss to Green Bay. However, it appears he may have aggravated this issue after popping up as a limited participant during practice Friday, leaving his status up in the air Week 18. Should Dantzler sit out, Kris Boyd and Kalon Barnes should serve as Minnesota's primary reserves behind top cornerbacks Patrick Peterson, Duke Shelley and Chandon Sullivan.... See More ... See Less

Dantzler missed the Vikings' Week 16 victory over the Giants due to an ankle injury.

Vikings' Cameron Dantzler: Not in line to play Saturday
Dantzler (ankle), who is listed as questionable for Saturday's game against the Giants, isn't expected to play, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
Expect Dantzler to be included on the Vikings' Week 16 inactive list, which will be released 90 minutes prior to the 1 p.m. ET kickoff. The 24-year-old was a mid-week addition to the Vikings' injury report after he was limited in practices Wednesday and Thursday, so the team may want to see him practice in full capacity before clearing him to play. Duke Shelley will likely pick up a start opposite top cornerback Patrick Peterson if Dantzler is sidelined for a second game in a row.... See More ... See Less
Vikings' Cameron Dantzler: Status up in the air for Week 16
Dantzler (ankle) is considered questionable to play Saturday against the Giants.
Dantzler popped up as a limited participant Wednesday with what Vikings coach Kevin O'Connell said was a tweaked ankle, according to Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press. However, O'Connell refrained from saying that cornerback Duke Shelley would start over Dantzler, per Tomasson. Therefore, it will be worth monitoring Minnesota's inactives list for more clarity ahead of Saturday's 1 p.m. ET kickoff.... See More ... See Less
Vikings' Cameron Dantzler: Works behind Shelley in warmups
Dantzler appeared to work with the second team behind Duke Shelley in warmups prior to Saturday's game against the Colts, Kevin Seifert of ESPN.com and Alec Lewis of The Athletic report.
It remains to be seen if that remains the case during Saturday's contest, but given that Dantzler had been listed as questionable after dealing with an illness this past week, it's possible that the cornerback could be eased back into the mix versus the Colts. In nine games to date, Dantzler has recorded 48 tackles and a forced fumble.... See More ... See Less
