Adam Thielen not practicing Thursday, looking unlikely to play

The Cowboys hope to have Amari Cooper for Sunday night. It’s looking more and more likely the Vikings won’t have Adam Thielen.

Thielen is watching practice again Thursday, according to the team’s beat writers.

Thielen missed practice Wednesday with the hamstring injury he initially injured Oct. 20 against the Lions. The Vikings made him inactive for the Thursday night game against Washington in Week Eight.

Thielen started last week but played only seven snaps before leaving.

He has 27 catches for 391 yards and six touchdowns this season.

Safety Andrew Sendejo, who rejoined the team Wednesday when the Vikings claimed him off waivers, also is not practicing.

Cornerback Trae Waynes (ankle) and nose tackle Linval Joseph (knee) were not present for the portion of practice open to the media.

  1. How is it Thielen could injure his hamstring on a first-quarter touchdown in Detroit and the Vikings had no trouble adjusting on the fly and putting up five more touchdowns, but in the last two games without him they look like they don’t know what to do without him? They’d better have an offensive game plan that looks better than the last two weeks.

  2. Thielen’s never been a leader. He knocks his own teammates in public like that childhood spat with Cousins earlier. He’s a diva. Gilbert Brown could cover him if his knees were a bit better.

  3. I don’t get it with these guys. Sammy Watkins, same thing. Out several weeks, finally come back and play a handful of snaps and then they are back out, usually for several weeks. If they go thru the pre-game workout and claim to be good to go, if I was the HC I’d expect four quarters!

    Easier to shut down one elite WR than two, however Bisi johnson has played well over the past two games. If the Cowboys start out like they did against the Giants it COULD be a good game. Alot also has to do with Reps during the week so if the QB is used to throwing to certain WRs more than others you get what ya had in KC last week.

  5. I do find it hilariously funny people downing a players ability, when they havent play a down let alone coached in the NFL. Sure they get compensated well, but social media rakes him or her over the coals. I tell ya what, I’d take a Thielen over an Antonio Brown anyday. Our society gets off on kicking people when they are down, its sad. Just because you don the jersey and buy the tickets doesnt give you the right.

    His one good game in the 7 in which he played speaks volumes.

    Tell me about all about Davante’s touchdowns this year please! Or wait until he catches Bisi Johnson before you open your mouth.

    Oh, so TDs determines greatness? So Aaron Jones is better than Dalvin Cook then?

    ———————————————————

    Tom Brady 531 TD passes

    Aaron Rodgers 355 TD passes

    Yep that is the greatness of the GOAT Brady

  8. Just and FYI Tokyo

    Cook TDs 9
    Jones TDs 8

    Just thought you’d like to know and for the record Cook both have played the same amount of game and Jones isn’t even close to yards, attempts and runs over 20 yards. Jones longest run this year 18 yards….lol but you keep at there boi.
