Vikings coach Mike Zimmer says he expects defensive end Danielle Hunter to suit up in practice this week and in Sunday's season opener against the Packers. Hunter has missed 17 straight practices since training camp began for an undisclosed reason. If he has an injury, it will be made public tomorrow when injury reports are due. Zimmer called it a "little tweak" and that he continues to improve.
Hunter has yet to practice opposite the team's newly acquired defensive end Yannick Ngakoue on the other end of the line. Once healthy, the duo should prove to be one of the league's most dangerous pass rush attacks in the league.
