Adam Thielen Questionable for Saturday’s Vikings Playoff Game
The Minnesota Vikings pulled a big upset Sunday when they defeated the New Orleans Saints. It'll be an even bigger upset if they win in San Francisco, especially if Adam Thielen can't play.
The Vikings have listed Thielen as questionable with an ankle injury for their NFC divisional playoff game Saturday against the 49ers.
The good news that there is no structural damage to the ankle, nor is there an ankle sprain. The bad news is that Theilen suffered a bad cut on his ankle during practice which required stitches.
NFL.com is reporting that the initial prognosis is good and that the wide receiver is trending towards playing.
Theilen, while appearing on NFL Network's Good Morning Football tried to downplay the injury and said he would do whatever it takes to take the field for the playoff showdown.
The San Francisco 49ers have a lot of talent on both sides of the ball, with their defense playing amazing football for the majority of the season. The Vikings will need all hands on deck, playing at their best, to pull another post season upset and advance.
