Adam Thielen 'unlikely' for Vikings Thursday night

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen (hamstring) is "unlikely" to play on Thursday night against the Washington Redskins in Week 8, per Tom Pelissero of NFL Network.

What It Means:

Ian Rapoport also said it's "hard to imagine" Thielen playing on Thursday. The timing is unfortunate since the Vikings are on a short week, but Pelissero adds that "there's "optimism he won't miss much time." If Thielen sits, it would be the first absence of his NFL career. Seventh-round rookie Bisi Johnson stepped in after Thielen exited Sunday's Week 7 win over the Detroit Lions, finishing with 4 catches for 40 yards on 8 targets.

Thielen caught a 25-yard touchdown on 2 targets Sunday before leaving. He has 27 receptions for 391 yards (14.5 per catch) and 6 touchdowns on 40 targets this season.
