Vikings bringing Davion Davis up from practice squad

Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen might have been “lobbying” to play Thursday night against Washington.

But the team is making sure they have enough at the position without him.

According to Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press, the Vikings are promoting wide receiver Davion Davis from the practice squad.

The undrafted rookie from Sam Houston State has been promoted once this year already, then waived and sent back down to the practice squad.

Thielen injured his hamstring last week against the Lions, and playing in the short week would be easy to view as an unnecessary risk, especially against a team that’s not the best one they’ll see.

  1. well if there is one thing the Vikings are good at, it is overlooking an “easy” opponent and losing to said “easy” opponent.

  2. I was surprised when Jeff Badet didn’t make the team. I also thought that zylstra was a lock but instead they kept this kid so maybe he has something. He might make it onto the field if we get a big lead. I would like to see what he’s got. But probably he is up in the unlikely event that we start losing wr’s in bunches and need a body.
