Hunter left Week 13 against the Texans with what the team called a stomach injury after absorbing a brutal hit by Texans safety Danieal Manning. He returned to the game but the injury worsened in the second half and Hunter was taken to the hospital after coughing up blood on the sideline.
According to Pro Football Talk, the injury is not expected to require surgery, nor does it appear to be life-threatening.
Although Hunter soon returned with what the team called a stomach injury, the injury worsened in the second half and Hunter was taken to the hospital, the report said.
"He came back in and played," coach Ken Whisenhunt told the website. "They thought he was OK, he came in and they checked him out. And then it got worse in the second half and that's why they are getting it checked out."
Titans wideout Nate Washington told The Tennessean that Hunter, who caught an 18-yard pass on three targets, was coughing up blood on the sideline.
