The Vikings placed offensive guard Dakota Dozier on the reserve practice squad COVID-19 list, the team announced.

Chris Tomasson of the Pioneer Press reports Dozier is fully vaccinated.

Dozier, who also can play center, was a candidate to join the active roster this week after starting center Garrett Bradbury went on the COVID-19 reserve list Thursday.

Mason Cole will start at center. Cole started 14 games last season for the Cardinals.

“He’s done a good job, Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said. “He did a good job at Arizona. We’re glad we have him.”

With Dozier no longer an option to serve as the backup, rookie guard Wyatt Davis, who also can play center, could fill that role.

  1. How is Cousins NOT in protocol? Doesn’t seem like enough of a safe distance between the QB’s hands and ‘ahem the other player. Warm up #11; let’s see what he’s got!

  2. You know that Dozier hasn’t started a game this year, right? Why would Cousins be taking snaps from a practice squad center?

  3. Bradbury and Dozier out? Maybe the football gods are starting to pity the Vikings after all.
