Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen won’t be back in the lineup for Monday night’s game in Seattle.

The Vikings listed Thielen as questionable on Saturday, but announced on Sunday that he will not play against the Seahawks. Thielen has missed the last two games and three of the last four with a hamstring injury. He quickly exited the one game he did play over that span.

With Thielen out, the Vikings will have Stefon Diggs, Olabisi Johnson and Laquon Treadwell at wide receiver.

The Vikings also announced that defensive tackle Jalyn Holmes will miss the game. He is out for non-injury reasons.

Linebacker Ben Gedeon (concussion) is also out. Safety Harrison Smith (hamstring), safety Anthony Harris (groin), defensive tackle Linval Joseph (knee) and defensive tackle Shamar Stephen (knee) were listed as questionable on Saturday.

  1. That’s ok, the other receivers have done a good job and the depth is showing. Rest up and be back for the division games!

  2. Hamstrings are not fun, didnt Cook miss 6-7 games last year because of one? Next man up, Bisi has done well. Vikes will be all right.

  3. Vikes lose to Sea Birds, Bolts, Cheeser’s, beating kittens and yogi’s. Not sure if 10-6 will be enough but that’s how it’s going to play out.

    Packer Rube, please if you think the Packers are at this point and time of the season anywhere near the 9ers,Saints, Seahwaks and Vikings youre delusional. Your Sqauds running game is nowhere as good as the the worst running game of all the teams, same with the defense. Your sqaud my have the best QB (not) but all those other sqauds have a better team.

    Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    And yet, after playing a nearly identical but slightly harder schedule than the Vikings, the Packers lead the division.

    Huh. How does that work?

  8. Weird; Every NFC home team playing another NFC team lost today. Hopefully that doesn’t continue on MNF.

  9. Final regular season game Da Bears knock the barneys outta the playoffs for the 2nd year in a row! Book it!

    Easy. Two phantom hands to the face penalties that sustained a TD scoring drive to take the lead against the lions.

  11. Thielen had a minor hammy pull in October and he is still out. One really starts to question if this dude has a real passion for the game and his team. Get out there and play for your teammates. This isn’t week 5. This is a late season must win for the little lavenders and you decide you can’t go?

  12. 2nd half #’s collapse. Thielan in a nutshell. In fact he’s got almost as much yards sitting on the bench not playing as he had all 8 of the 2nd half games last year. He had 440 plus yards in those games but after having 800 to start the year, it was an incredible drop off.

    GET INTO THE WEIGHT ROOM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Also they are saying hamstring. IT’S HIS BACK

    You wish. The Packers are frauds. They have no wins against good opponents that either:

    1. They didn’t win at the comforts of their home field
    2. Wasn’t a result of a controversial call.

    The Packers are frauds. The vikings maybe aren’t very good either, but as a realistic fan I can admit that.

  14. Seattle has a far better team, (including the HC and QB) than the cheese. This is a much bigger test than playing the cheese at home. Also Vikes won’t have the refs to count on like the cheese does either. This is going to be hard!

  15. The Vikings are, by far, the most overrated team in the NFL. Not only this decade, where it’s the most obvious, but going back to their very beginning. No other team has outplayed their talent level in the regular season and then shown their true colors when it matters most more than the ugly purples.

    It took literally a miracle to win one playoff game this decade, but that doesn’t stop their fans from telling everyone that will listen that their team is amazing. One would think, given their history, that Vikings fans would be humble. That they would wait it out to see how their team does before trash talking. But no…they have this imaginary pedigree which they flaunt as the real deal.

    The Vikings won’t win another playoff game with the current coaching staff. Kirk Cousins is not a playoff caliber QB. This defense gets gashed by good QBs and backup QBs alike. They are 1-2 in the division but their fans claim they’re the best team in it.

    The time has long passed for you all to realize that your team is—and always has been—a joke. Stop trash talking until your team earns something. Stop blaming the refs and injuries for your team’s legendary ineptitude. Eat a slice of humble pie and visit the mall of america, your only claim to fame.

  16. It is always so good to tickle the belly of a cheese lover. It’s not trash talking. It’s cheese chewing. As to the ref comments? All true. They always favor the cheese, making a win vs them even more meaningful, and while the Vikes will most likely be a wild card at seasons end, they will best the cheddar at home.

    You talk alot of crap for a guy whose Squad depends on one person to when games and has for decades. The the QBs in this race, Brees, Wilson, Jimmy G and Cousins are all playing better at this point and time in the season the Aaron. You got waxed on National TV. They said Cousins couldn’t come from behind, he did against a very good Denver Defense, They said Cousins could’nt win in Prime Time, He did Dallas and Washington.

    Defense getting gashed? How many times did Daniel Carlson gash your secondary yesterday on 4th and long? That game was a lot closer then the score Minneapolis Miracle means nothing to me, its the now…. 2019. Packer rubes tend to live in the past and they feel it is their Birthright that anything in the past supersedes whats going on now. We are talking here a now Boi and as of right now you got a “slump buster” yesterday. You can’t play big boy football, that was apparent when you peed down your leg on National TV against the 9ers not to mention the thrashing you got from the Chargers. No matter who the Packers play, they will not last the first round. All the other teams have better defense and way superior running games

  18. It’s very unfortunate that Thielen isn’t playing. Diggs will be Diggs. And as mentioned above, Johnson and Treadwell have really stepped up in the absence of Thielen. The Vikings also have some great pass catching TE’s and screens to Cook always seem to work well (very well?). The bottom line is the O-line giving Cousins ample time- he will have plenty of targets. KC can make any receiver look good. 😉
