Vikings offensive line coach Rick Dennison will remain with the team, according to a league source, after agreeing to comply with the NFL's COVID-19 protocols.

Dennison, the 63-year-old veteran NFL assistant coach, would have to take on a different role with the Vikings this season if he remains unvaccinated against COVID-19. NFL rules mandate that anyone with direct contact to players — executives, coaches, equipment managers — must be inoculated. Coaches who are not vaccinated can only meet with players virtually, and can't do any on-field coaching.
