The Vikings have not exactly been forthcoming about defensive end Danielle Hunter‘s injury. When Hunter began missing practices in August, coach Mike Zimmer classified it as a “tweak.”

Courtney Cronin of ESPN reports that Hunter has a cervical spine disc herniation. Cronin said despite what the Vikings have said publicly, they expected the injury to keep Hunter out 6-8 weeks when he went on IR on Sept. 9.

The Vikings remain optimistic Hunter will return at some point this season.
