Adam Thielen likely out again for Vikings

Vikings receiver Adam Thielen likely won’t be back until Week 13, at the earliest.

Thielen isn’t practicing again today, according to Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press. As Tomasson notes, it looks like Thielen won’t play on Sunday against the Broncos.

Thielen initially injured his hamstring in a Week Seven game at Detroit. He returned briefly two weeks later at Kansas City, but quickly aggravated the injury. He didn’t play on Sunday night at Dallas.

With a Week 12 bye, it makes sense to let Thielen rest for now, in the hopes that he’ll be ready for a huge Monday night game at Seattle, in 18 days.

Also out today for the Vikings are defensive tackle Linval Joseph (knee), and guard Josh Kline (concussion). Defensive tackle Shamar Stephen (knee) is practicing on Thursday after missing Wednesday’s session.

  1. Don’t see how this is any different than the 2nd half of last season either except he played through lower back, leg pain, the same lower back, leg problems he suffered during the Saints miracle win. He needs to hit the weights more.

  2. Makes sense to completely heal the hammy, although he sure could be used against a tough Denver defense. I’m glad some fans aren’t on the Vikings training staff — hitting the weights has little to do with preventing hamstring injuries — it’s about leg muscle balance, flexibility, fatigue avoidance and hydration.

  3. There’s no good reason to bring him back before the bye week. Hopefully he’ll be ready for the game in Seattle, because they’ll need him.

    Shouldn’t you be shinning up all your trophies and rings? Im surprised you have the time to comment on the lowly Barney’s page!

  6. Vikes aren’t going to get any playoff W’s without Thielen. May as well let him rest it and try to heal. Hopefully it’s not worse than the team is letting on.

    Maybe it’s Beebe’s or Treadwells’ time to shine?

    I can speak for 99% of actual Vikings fans:
    This team is done. It’s been a total failure with Cousins. Start over. This franchise is a joke. Cousins is the worst free agent signing in NFL history. The defense is old and over the hill. Firesale this entire roster for picks and start over…again.
    Anybody that says otherwise is simply a troll or an idiot like flviking.
    Packer, Bear, and Lion fans: enjoy dominating the division this year and next year. Who knows what 2021 brings but the Vikings will be a bottom 10 NFL team in 2019 and 2020
