Vikings receiver Adam Thielen suffered a hamstring injury on Sunday against the Lions. He hopes to be available when the Vikings return to action in only four days.

“We’ll evaluate it, see where it’s at after getting an MRI and then hopefully I’ll get ready to go,” Thielen said after the win in Detroit, via Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press. “I’m optimistic that I’ll be playing and that’s all we can do right now.”

Thielen added that he doesn’t think it will be any tougher to be ready by Thursday as opposed to a normal week. But how can it not be? Those extra three days could make a huge difference when it comes to healing the injured muscle.

The Vikings performed well without Thielen, but they’ll be even better if he’s available for quarterback Kirk Cousins‘ first game against the his old team.

  1. Cousins will torch his old team if Josh Norman plays. The ONLY reason the Numbskins “improved” on defense this week is by subtracting Norman and replacing him with someone with talent.

    Why would he even want to play, Cousins is still the QB and clearly Thielen(by his own remarks after week 4) thinks Kirk sucks! I’ve never seen so many people(players included) be such bandwagon jumpers, they jumped off of the Vikes wagon in week 4 after the loss to the Bears and now they’re all back on it, even all the Cousins haters, unbelievable!

  3. Did he throw his QB under the bus again after the game? Oh wait, he only foes that when they lose, or enough passes don’t come his way…

    Second place must feel so very good to these losers
    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    Pump your chest, Crow, and Strut ALL you want Hometown! We BOTH know the only reason you are 6-1 instead of 4-3 is because the Refs are in your pocket. NO WAY you beat Minnesota IN Minnesota! Especially the way the Vikings are rolling right now. Once the Referees realize they are being scrutinized they will stop with the critical calls allowing Green Bay to extend those 3 or so critical drives that should be 4th down and punt! Minnesota OWNED you 2 1/2 out of the games after your fast start. Zimmer knows you know.. Vikings win except for the 3 drives 2 of which the play clock proves delay of game when the clock hit 00. I have the photos, too bad we cannot post them here.. all I can say to you is.. Ha Ha…..HA…HAhahahaha….. It is going to be SOOO sweet taking the Division from you on that game!

    Second place doesn’t matter does it, if the Vikings make the playoffs and eliminate the Packers. 2004 it happened, it can happen again. The Vikings are playing much better since the week 2 game. The Packers have benefited from a super soft schedule,and help from the officials. The Lions should have beat you. The Vikings should be favored in most of the remaining games except for Maybe Sea hawks , and Cowboys games.
