EAGAN, Minn. — The Vikings on Friday ruled out cornerbacks Holton Hill, Cameron Dantzler and Mark Fields II for Sunday's game against the Detroit Lions.
Hill has missed the previous three games with a foot injury. Dantzler suffered a neck injury last week at Green Bay and is in concussion protocol. Fields is listed with a chest injury that he suffered last week.
Minnesota has had a revolving door at cornerback all season. Rookie CB Harrison Hand (hamstring) has been listed as questionable.
The other players on Minnesota's injury report this week — fullback C.J. Ham (shoulder), receiver Adam Thielen (shoulder) and receiver/special teamer Dan Chisena (hip) — did not receive a designation for the game and are expected to be available.

Friday's Lions Injury Report: Detroit will be without WR Kenny Golladay, DB Tracy Walker and return specialist Jamal Agnew on Sunday.
Golladay's 338 yards are the most on the team, but he will be sidelined with a hip injury. Walker (foot) is tied for the team lead with 47 tackles, and Agnew (ribs) has handled all kickoff return duties and all but one punt return that was a fair catch by Danny Amendola.
G Joe Dahl (back), LB Christian Jones (knee), CB Darryl Roberts (hip/groin) and OL Halapoulivaati Vaitai (foot) have been listed as questionable. Dahl did not practice Friday. Jones and Roberts were limited. Vaitai fully participated.
The other Lions players on the injury report this week — T Taylor Decker (back), TE T.J. Hockenson (toe), DT Danny Shelton (wrist) and CB Desmond Trufant (hamstring) — fully participated Friday and did not receive a status for the game and are expected to play.
The question of Matthew Stafford's availability remains, but the Vikings have prepared as if the QB will be available. He was placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list on Wednesday and must continue to test negative to be available for the game.
