EAGAN, Minnesota — Former Iowa Hawkeye T.J. Hockenson, who had 60 catches for 519 yards and three touchdowns in 10 games with the Vikings following his mid-season trade from Detroit, has missed much of Minnesota’s training camp while dealing with an ear infection that disrupted his equilibrium. Recovered from the ear infection, Hockenson was also out of team drills on Wednesday as the Vikings and Arizona Cardinals conducted joint practices. Vikings head coach Kevin O’Connell updated the media on Wednesday on Hockenson’s status.

O’Connell says Hockenson is working out on side fields at training camp, as he has since August 3rd

O’Connell says he does not think Hockensen is missing team drills due to his contract situation

O’Connell says they hope to get Hockenson back on the practice field soon

Hockenson was second only to All-Pro receiver Justin Jefferson in catches for the Vikings after his arrival in Week 8 last season.
