Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen left Sunday’s game with a hamstring injury, but it seems that injury won’t keep him out long. He’s likely to miss Thursday night’s game against Washington, but hopefully nothing beyond that.
An MRI showed #Vikings WR Adam Thielen's pulled hamstring isn't a serious injury, sources say. Unlikely to play Thursday against the #Redskins, but optimism he won't miss much time.— Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) October 21, 2019
This is obviously great news as the Vikings’ passing game has started to come alive and you’d hate for them (and fantasy owners) to lose their number one receiver right as that’s happening. It makes sense why Thielen is doubtful to play Thursday against Washington given the quick turnaround. I’m firing up Stefon Diggs everywhere I can this week.
