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.

The third-year cornerback still has yet to play a full season in his NFL career.
