Vikings defensive end Danielle Hunter was ruled out of Sunday night’s loss to the Cowboys with a chest injury and he’s set to miss a lot more time based on the initial diagnosis of the injury.

NFL Media reports that Hunter is having an MRI on Monday to confirm a torn pec. If the test does confirm the injury, Hunter will miss the rest of the season.

Hunter missed all of last season with a neck injury, but returned to the lineup this season and has 38 tackles and six sacks through the first seven games of this year.

Everson Griffen, D.J. Wonnum, and Kenny Willekes are the other defensive ends on the roster in Minnesota.

  1. Does it get any more Viking that this? Convinced you have unnecessary depth at d-line, you literally give away one of your ends, only to then have your best one go out for the season.

  2. Very disappointing to hear about Hunter.
    I never like to see any fans reveling in another team’s injuries.
    But how this organization expunges their depth barely 1/3 of the way through the current season is a perfect example of why this team loses.

  3. Please just pack it in for the season and get a top-5 draft pick for once.

  4. last season and 10 games this season of Hunter being hurt. Time to move on. He wants more money to be hurt and not play. cya

  5. He was pretty durable prior to the last 2 years. Tough to lose him, but its not like this team was a SB contender. If folks are lamenting trading Weatherly, who Carolina didn’t even want, they are barking up the wrong defensive tree — the rookies can provide the same performance he did (which isn’t really saying much I know).
