Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer told the media on Thursday there’s a “chance” that wide receiver Adam Thielen plays in Week 11 against the Broncos.
Thielen re-injured his hamstring in the first quarter of the Vikings’ Week 9 game against the Chiefs. He told his teammates on the sidelines he was “done,” even though the team ruled him questionable to return.
Thielen did not play in Week 10 against the Cowboys and hasn’t practiced all week. He has been seen rehabbing with resistance training but did not participate in team drills.
In eight games this season, Thielen has caught 27 passes for 391 yards and six touchdowns. He’s been targeted 41 times. The Vikings have a bye in Week 12.
