Vaccinated lineman Dakota Dozier hospitalized with COVID-19


The Minnesota Vikings' offensive lineman Dakota Dozier has been admitted to an emergency room due to COVID-19 complications.

Dozier has reportedly been vaccinated against COVID-19.

Like 29 guys are getting tested because of close contact, including myself.

"One of our players that was vaccinated, he had to go to the ER last night because of COVID. It's serious stuff," coach Mike Zimmer told reporters on Wednesday but without naming the player.

"Like 29 guys are getting tested because of close contact, including myself."

NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport later reported the the player was Dozier.

The NFL's COVID-19 policy does not require vaccinated individuals to be quarantined.

5 players on COVID-19 list

On Monday, the Vikings had placed linebacker Ryan Connelly on the reserve/COVID-19 list, while offensive lineman Tim Parris was placed on the practice squad reserve/COVID-19 list, giving the club five players designated to reserve/COVID-19.

Vaccinated center Garrett Bradbury missed the Vikings' OT loss to the Baltimore Ravens due to a breakthrough case and was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list on Sunday, as was defensive back Harrison Smith.

Zimmer had talked of the importance of getting vaccinated before the start of the season, and the club brought in an infectious diseases expert to educate the players.

The Vikings play the Los Angeles Chargers in an away game this week.
