Adam Thielen expected to return for Vikings in Week 15

Adam Thielen

After a troublesome hamstring injury cost him the last four games, Adam Thielen appears ready to return for the Minnesota Vikings this weekend.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported Wednesday that Thielen will play against the Los Angeles Chargers unless there is some sort of setback in practice.

Thielen has not played since Nov. 3, but the injury had been lingering before that, and he hasn’t played in a game with double-digit snaps since Oct. 13. The fact that the Vikings have managed to win without him is a testament to good depth and gameplanning, but they’ve definitely missed him and will be pleased to welcome him back.

Thielen has six touchdown catches this season, all of which came in the first seven games of the year. That, coming on the heels of nine last year, certify his status as Kirk Cousins’ favorite red zone target.
