COVID-19 is wreaking havoc with the Minnesota Vikings, and according to head coach Mike Zimmer, one player had to go to the emergency room on Tuesday night because of complications.
“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 Wednesday. “Like 29 guys are getting tested because of close contact, including myself.”
Zimmer would not name the player who was hospitalized but he did say he is in stable condition.
Ian Rapoport reported later that the player hospitalized was offensive lineman Dakota Dozier.
Dozier was placed on the Vikings’ COVID-19 list this past Friday.
