The little tweak that kept Danielle Hunter out of a large portion of training camp doesn’t appear to be so little after all.
The Vikings’ star left defensive end, who hasn’t practiced since Aug. 14 and missed much of camp because of what coach Mike Zimmer described as a “little tweak,” did not practice on Wednesday and isn’t likely to play Sunday in the regular-season opener against the Green Bay Packers, according to reports.
Hunter had 14.5 sacks last season and is one of the top defensive ends in the NFL.
