Stefon Diggs didn’t practice on Wednesday and he wasn’t the only Vikings wide receiver on the injury report.

Adam Thielen was listed as a limited participant due to an ankle injury in Wednesday’s practice. He was not on the injury report at all on Tuesday.

Thielen missed time with a hamstring injury during the second half of the season, but returned in Week 15 and had a big game with seven catches for 129 yards in last weekend’s win over the Saints.

The only other change from Tuesday was defensive tackle Linval Joseph (knee) moving from out of practice to limited participation. Diggs (illness), cornerback Mackensie Alexander (knee) and safety Jayron Kearse (toe, knee) were out of practice.

  1. I’ll be the first one to admit that I was yelling for Zimmer to pull Thielen from the game last weekend after the lost fumble and the holding penalty. Then he comes back with two HUGE catches in the second half to setup the winning score. Whew, boy was I wrong! Better hope this is just a psych out move by Zimmer and crew..

  2. Maybe it will be Diggs’ turn to smoke the opponent’s secondary this week.

  3. It seems like a lot of players on all the teams are pretty beat up now. That is why I saw no to expanding the number of games in the regular season. I hope Thielen and Diggs are ready to go on Saturday.

  4. I don’t think EITHER team’s defense is going to be “smoked.” They are both pretty solid, and the niners front 4 is pretty darn scary.

    I think the big question will be how the Vikes handle the intermediate passing and if they can contain Kittle.

    The Vikes were able to put pressure on Brees by moving Griffin and Hunter inside and exploiting the Guards of the Saints. But that is not out there and the 49ers won’t be fooled by that change up even IF Zimmer tries it again.

    I know I’m not saying anything that isn’t fairly obvious, but I think it will all pretty much come down to whether or not the Vikes can run the ball and keep Bosa an co. off of Cousins.

    If they CAN, they can keep the 49ers offense off the field and compete. If they can’t, then Bosa and company will tee-off on Cousins and it could get ugly, and end up looking like the two GreenBay games that the Vikings lost. Or at least the LAST one. The first one was a comeback though passing that Cousins fell short of with that poor INT in the end zone. The last one was the Vikes O-line being pretty much dominated by the Pack defense.
