The Minnesota Vikings did not have the services of wide receiver Adam Thielen in last week’s game. Unfortunately, it looks like that trend is on pace to continue for yet another week.
According to Rotoworld, Thielen has missed yet another practice with his lingering hamstring injury. Thielen missed the Vikings’ Week 13 loss against the Seattle Seahawks.
The 29-year-old receiver is currently third on the team in receiving yards with 391 and tied for the lead in touchdowns with six. Thielen still holds those marks despite missing four games this season.
The four games that Thielen has missed this season are the first of his career. He played in all 80 games in his first five NFL seasons.

Despite missing one of their best receivers, the Minnesota Vikings are still looking good in the NFC playoff race.
They’re only one game out of the NFC North division race, but have a three-game cushion in the wildcard hunt.
Fortunately for the Vikings, they get an equally-injured Detroit Lions team to serve as their next challenge as their playoff hunt continues.
But if the Vikings have any dreams of making an actual run, they’ll likely need Thielen to be at 100-percent.
