Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen missed last week's game with a hamstring injury. Right now, his status for Sunday is uncertain.

Thielen has been limited in practice the last two days. The Vikings' confirmed his participation level with the release of the team injury report a short time ago.

Defensive tackles Linval Joseph and Shamar Stephen are the only two other players on the report. Both were full participants.

We'll continue to monitor Thielen's status into the weekend. Right now, it looks like he could be a game-time decision on Sunday.

Thielen injured his hamstring in the first half of a win over the Detroit Lions on October 20. He had hauled in a 25-yard touchdown in that game before getting hurt.

For the season, the two-time Pro Bowler as registered 27 receptions for 391 yards and a team-high six touchdowns. Minnesota is 6-2 and riding a four-game winning streak into a Sunday showdown against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Chiefs-Vikings will kick off at 1 p.m. ET Sunday from Arrowhead Stadium.
