The bad news the Vikings feared on pass rusher Danielle Hunter has been confirmed.

Vikings coach Mike Zimmer confirmed today that Hunter tore his pectoral muscle and will miss the rest of the season.

After missing all of last season with a neck injury, Hunter returned to the field this season and played well, with six sacks in seven games.

Hunter’s contract calls for an $18.5 million roster bonus on the fifth day of the league year in 2022, which means he’s likely either going to re-work his contract or be released in the offseason.

  1. The pass rush was nonexistent last night after Hunter left the game. Get used to that for the rest of the season. I see no reason why they shouldn’t go into full tank mode at this point. There is nothing positive about this organization right now.

  2. Well if their record didn’t say it this did – that’s the end of the season for the Vikes this year.

  3. Nobody with half a brain wants to see injuries to the stars of this league. Rivalries are best played at full strength. Hopefully he comes back sooner than later.

  4. Being a fan for over 50 some years, it’s time to have a Viking funeral at the end of the season. Burn the ship start over – I’ve never uttered those words but it’s time.

  5. No depth, no offense, horrible game plan, no adjustments.

    Told you all before no playoffs and beyond this year no hope.
