Shark Bites

The Vikings have placed DE Danielle Hunter on IR. By this year's altered rules, of course, that just means he'll miss at least 3 games. We'll see beyond that. The team has only ever called Hunter's injury a "tweak," but we're at almost a month that it has kept him off the field. ESPN's Courtney Cronin reports that it's "related to a neck injury he sustained," according to an anonymous source. If you drafted Hunter in an IDP league, you'll need to find a replacement for at least the 1st few games.

Recent Shark Bites

Vikings HC Mike Zimmer confirms that DE Danielle Hunter suffered a pectoral tear Sunday night and will miss the rest of the season. That's a big loss for the Minnesota defense. Hunter's absence leaves Everson Griffen and D.J. Wonnum as the top 2 at the position.

The Vikings fear that DE Danielle Hunter tore a pectoral muscle in Sunday night's loss to the Cowboys, according to multiple reports. If that proves to be the case, it would end Hunter's season. That would leave Everson Griffen and D.J. Wonnum as the team's top 2 at the position, barring a trade ahead of Tuesday's deadline. We'll watch for confirmation on Hunter's status.

Vikings DE Danielle Hunter left Sunday night's game against the Cowboys with a shoulder injury. After initially calling him questionable to return, Minnesota ruled him out for the game near the start of the 2nd half. That doesn't bode well for his immediate outlook. We'll see about the specific diagnosis.

Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports that Vikings DE Danielle Hunter has received 2 recommendations that he sit out the rest of the season because of the herniated disc in his neck. The 1st opinion came after Hunter visited the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York last week. The 2nd comes from his personal trainer. We'll see what the player and team decide, but don't expect to have Hunter available for your IDP lineup anytime soon.

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports that Vikings DE Danielle Hunter isn't expected to be ready to play when he's eligible to return from IR next week. Hunter's dealing with a herniated disc in his neck and is reportedly "regaining strength and getting closer to returning." Pelissero adds that optimism is "still high that he's back this season." That's good, but it also falls short of telling us that Hunter will definitely be back this season. We'll keep an eye out for updates on his status. You might soon have a roster decision to make on Hunter if you can't keep him stashed in an IR slot.
