  Vikings | Second opinion for Danielle Hunter    Fri Oct 2, 04:14 PM

Minnesota Vikings DE Danielle Hunter (neck) has traveled to New York to receive a second opinion on his neck injury, according to head coach Mike Zimmer.

Footballguys view: This is usually a fork in the road where one side leads to surgery and the end of the season. The Vikings are unlikely to contend for the playoffs without a stunning turnaround, so taking the long term solution over the short term to get Hunter back on the field quicker might be in the best interest of both Hunter and the franchise.

Minnesota Vikings DE Danielle Hunter (neck) appears unlikely to resume playing when he is eligible to be activated from the Reserve/Injured list in Week 4, although he is regaining strength and getting closer to returning from an apparent herniated disc in his neck.

Footballguys view: There's optimism that he'll play again this year, but by then the season could be lost for the Vikings. This "tweak" from training camp was obviously something much more serious in hindsight.
