Adam Thielen Expected to Play Sunday vs. Chargers
Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen was not given a designation on today's final team injury report of the week, and is expected to play Sunday against the Chargers.
Thielen, one of the NFL's best receivers, has essentially missed six games after injuring his hamstring on October 20th while catching a TD pass from Kirk Cousins. He attempted to return on November 17th in Kansas City, but only lasted six plays.
Thielen is a native of Detroit Lakes, and alum of Minnesota State in Mankato. He has 27 receptions for 391 yards in his eight games this season.
Last season, Thielen led the Vikings receivers with 113 receptions and 1,373 receiving yards -- and tied for the team lead with nine touchdown catches.
The Vikings face the Chargers this Sunday afternoon at 3:05 PM CT on CBS and 1240 AM/95.3 FM WJON.
