Vikings receiver Adam Thielen is questionable for Sunday vs. Rams

Nearly three weeks ago, Vikings receiver Adam Thielen suffered a high ankle sprain early in a loss to the Lions. He hasn’t played since. He could play on Sunday, in perhaps the most important game of the year.

Thielen officially is questionable for the visit from the Rams.

K.J. Osborn has performed capably in place of Thielen, but Thielen is the No. 2 guy across from Justin Jefferson for a reason. With running back Dalvin Cook out due to a COVID diagnosis, the Minnesota passing game needs to make up for Cook’s absence.

At 7-7, the Vikings likely need to win at least two of the final three to have a chance at making the playoffs. They possibly have to win all three, on Sunday against the Rams, the following Sunday at Green Bay, and then against the Bears.

Fullback C.J. Ham also is questionable for Sunday, with a hamstring injury.

  1. Prediction: Loss to Rams. Win at Green Bay. Win at home against Bears. 7th seed in playoffs. Lose first round. Zimmer survives for one more year.

  2. They will probably run the table and beat my Pack in the first round (after we blow the #1 seed) ugh

  3. It doesn’t matter they are done, they’re losing the next two in a row with or without Thielen & he knows it.

    Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    I didn’t realize you were still doing the “pretender” stuff. Initially, for a month or two, it may have been amusingly sardonic. After a few years, it’s just plain weird.

  5. For the Vikings and their fans, .500 football is an acceptable norm. They don’t expect or hope for anything more.
