UPDATE #2: Thielen has officially be downgraded to OUT for the remainder of today’s game.


UPDATE: It’s a hamstring injury for Thielen, and his return is questionable.


In the first quarter of the Minnesota Vikings’ NFC North battle against the Detroit Lions, Adam Thielen made one of his usual Adam Thielen plays, but it might end up being a costly one.

Kirk Cousins connected with Thielen on an outstanding 25-yard touchdown pass to tie the game at 7-7 against the Vikings’ NFC North rivals, but Thielen appeared to land very hard and needed assistance to get off the field.

There hasn’t been any word on what happened to Thielen, but he went into the sideline medical tent and came out without his helmet. He appears to be moving around on the sideline without an issue and talking with teammates, which is a positive sign.

Once we get word on what happened to Thielen, we will pass it along to you.

Again, Minnesota Vikings’ wide receiver Adam Thielen has suffered an undisclosed injury on a touchdown catch against the Detroit Lions. We are awaiting word on his condition.
