  • Vikings' Danielle Hunter: Says he's healthy heading into 2022

    Hunter (pectoral) said he's healthy following Tuesday's workout and claimed he could've returned last year if the Vikings had made the playoffs, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. After back-to-back campaigns with at least 14 sacks, Hunter played only seven games last year due to a pectoral injury. There were talks of the Vikings potentially moving on from the talented pass rusher after his injury-plagued campaign, but Minnesota has elected to hold onto their 2015 third-round pick to see if he can get back on track in 2022.

  • Vikings' Danielle Hunter: Reinstated from reserve/COVID-19

    Hunter (pectoral) was reinstated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Tuesday and shifted back to injured reserve, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. Hunter was moved to the COVID-19 list Dec. 14, but he will now return to the team, though he'll remain on IR for the rest of the season. The defensive end will continue rehabbing his pectoral injury and try and be ready for the beginning of the 2022 season.

  • Vikings' Danielle Hunter: Moves to COVID list

    Hunter has shifted from injured reserve to the Vikings' reserve/COVID-19 list, Ben Goessling of the Star Tribune reports. Hunter was placed on the IR in early-November after suffering a torn pectoral muscle. So, his season is still over, and he will revert back to IR once he can clear the league's COVID protocols.

  • Vikings' Danielle Hunter: Shifts to injured reserve

    Hunter (pectoral) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. Hunter was ruled out for the rest of the season after suffering a torn pectoral muscle during Sunday's loss to the Cowboys, and he's now officially on injured reserve. Rookie D.J. Wonnum is likely to move into a starting role in the wake of Hunter's injury.

  • Vikings' Danielle Hunter: Three sacks in loss

    Hunter had three sacks and seven total tackles in Sunday's loss at Arizona. Hunter has four sacks in two games as he looks back to his 2019 form after missing last season due to neck surgery.

  • Vikings' Danielle Hunter: Ready for Week 1

    Hunter (neck) has been at full strength this preseason and is set to start at left defensive end Week 1 at Cincinnati, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. "He's stronger, to my knowledge. He looks a little bigger," Vikings left tackle Rashod Hill said. "He's got some moves that I've never seen on the left before." Hunter missed last season after surgery to repair a cervical herniated disc. He fully participated in training camp, and there were not reports of any issues. He amassed more than 70 tackles and 14.5 sacks in each of 2018 and 2019, giving him the upside to finish as the top defensive line IDP if he's back to his prior form.

  • Vikings' Danielle Hunter: Takes first-team reps at practice

    Hunter (neck) took first-team reps at right and left defensive end in Wednesday's first practice of training camp and didn't appear to be limited, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. Hunter missed the 2020 season due to a herniated disc that required surgery in October. He didn't participate in spring workouts, but looks back to full speed for training camp. Hunter's return to full health could have a huge impact on the defense as his ability to rush the quarterback (29 sacks across 2018 and 2019) was sorely missed.

  • Vikings' Danielle Hunter: Ready for camp

    Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer said Wednesday that Hunter (neck) looked "fantastic" after reporting to minicamp and should be ready for training camp, Kevin Patra of NFL.com reports. The 26-year-old quickly joined the team after agreeing to a reworked deal with the Vikings at the start of the week, and he's apparently healthy again after missing the 2020 season due to a herniated disc that required surgery in October. While he didn't participate in minicamp workouts, Hunter's presence in the building along with Zimmer's acknowledgement that the defensive end was "obviously healthy" following a physical suggests that Hunter won't face any restrictions for training camp. Hunter posted 29 sacks across 2018 and 2019, so he should provide a big boost to Minnesota's pass rush if he can stay healthy.

  • Vikings' Danielle Hunter: Gets reworked deal

    Hunter (neck) agreed to a reworked contract with the Vikings on Monday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. This deal allows Hunter to receive more money on the front end of the contract, and Minnesota expects the defensive end to report to camp following the reworked contract. He hasn't taken the field since 2019 after a herniated disc caused him to miss the entire 2020 campaign.

  • Vikings' Danielle Hunter: Absent from this week's practices

    Hunter (neck) hasn't been in attendance for OTAs this week, the Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. "I've spoken to [Hunter] a few times this offseason,'' teammate Anthony Barr said. "He's going about things the way he thinks he needs to and I support him 100 percent. He's a friend and obviously an incredible player, and we'd love to have him whenever he does decide it's time to show up and get back to work." Hunter's status for the 2021 season remains a mystery. He missed last season with herniated disc that ultimately required surgery in October. In March, NFL Network reported that Hunter wanted to be the highest-paid defender in the league or be traded. Hunter has three years left on a deal that averages $14.4 million per year. The Vikings have given out little information on Hunter's injury or recovery, and it's not clear if his current absence is related to his contract situation, given that general manager Rick Spielman said in March he hadn't heard demands from Hunter for a new deal. Meanwhile, Hunter's return may be the most important factor for the team, considering its struggles to generate a consistent pass rush last season. Perhaps Hunter's status will become more clear when the team has additional OTAs and a mandatory minicamp in June.

  • Vikings' Danielle Hunter: Bound for season-ending surgery

    Hunter (neck) will undergo season-ending surgery this week to clean up a herniated disc, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. The news of Hunter's procedure comes just hours after the Vikings dealt their other stalwart defensive end, Yannick Ngakoue, to the Ravens. Ngakoue and Hunter were never able to form the fearsome pass-rushing duo the Vikings envisioned, as Hunter was moved to injured reserve shortly before the start of the season due to the neck injury. With the Vikings sitting at 1-5 and Hunter having failed to make much progress in his recovery thus far, the 25-year-old will go under the knife in hopes of finding a more permanent fix for his injury. With Ngakoue now in Baltimore and the two-time Pro Bowler done for the season, an already suspect Vikings pass defense now becomes even weaker.

  • Vikings' Danielle Hunter: Still not practicing

    Hunter (neck) is not present at Thursday's practice, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. The Vikings still haven't designated Hunter for a return from IR, so at this point it looks like the star defensive end won't play until after the team's Week 7 bye. A lingering neck injury has prevented Hunter from yet taking the field this season.

  • Vikings' Danielle Hunter: Unlikely for Week 4

    Hunter is regaining strength as he recovers from what's believed to be a herniated disc, but the defensive end isn't expected to be activated from injured reserve when first eligible to return for the Vikings' Week 4 matchup with the Texans, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports. Minnesota isn't viewing the neck issue as a potential season-ending injury for Hunter, but the team likely won't have a clear idea of when he might be ready to play again until he's cleared to practice in some capacity. The Vikings have sorely missed the 25-year-old's presence on the edge, as Minnesota has recorded only two sacks through two games, tied for the third-lowest mark in the league. The lack of a consistent pass rush has left an inexperienced secondary vulnerable, with opposing passers completing 73.9 percent of attempts for 283.5 yards per contest.

  • Vikings' Danielle Hunter: Held out of practice

    Hunter (undisclosed) did not practice Thursday, Andrew Krammer of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. Coach Mike Zimmer said that the team is taking a "cautious" approach to Hunter's recovery from an undisclosed injury. The star defensive end doesn't yet appear in any danger of missing Sept. 13's season opener against the Packers, but his practice status will be worth monitoring.

  • Vikings' Danielle Hunter: Sits out scrimmage

    Hunter (undisclosed) did not participate in Friday's dress rehearsal scrimmage at U.S. Bank Stadium, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. While head coach Mike Zimmer has said that Hunter is improving, the media has not seen him participating in a practice since early in camp. With two weeks before the team's first game, Hunter's availability for the start of the regular season remains uncertain.

The 25-year-old's destructive Week 14 performance makes him the youngest player in NFL history to accumulate 50 career sacks, according to Courtney Cronin of ESPN.com. Hunter will look to keep up his considerable momentum against the Chargers in Week 15.

Watt and Chris Jones. The Vikings signed the 2015 third-round pick to a five-year, $72 million extension over the summer, and he rewarded them with the best season of his career.
