Minnesota Vikings tight end Irv Smith Jr. underwent thumb surgery on Tuesday, according to head coach Kevin O’Connell.

The hope is that the 23-year-old standout will return at the start of the season. On Monday, Smith left practice early with a trainer after what looked like an injury. He later returned to the sidelines and never went back into practice.
