Minnesota Vikings‘ Adam Thielen had to exit the game last night due to ankle injury.  The wide receiver left the game during the first quarter. The match concluded with Vikings’ 29-27 loss to the Detroit Lions.

Adam Schefter from ESPN reported that Thielen sustained a high ankle sprain. He further indicated that the matter is so serious there is no knowing how much time he’ll miss. On Sunday night, Schefter tweeted,

“Vikings’ WR Adam Thielen suffered a high ankle sprain during today’s loss at Detroit, per source. He will undergo further testing Monday to determine how much time he’ll miss”

Will Ragatz from Inside the Vikings replied to the tweet that provided more information. Will projected that Thielen is unlikely to be match-fit for Thursday’s primetime matchup with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Dalvin Cook, who sat out in Week 13 with a shoulder injury will also not recover in time. Ragatz re-tweeted to Adam Schefter’s tweet saying:

“Safe to say the Vikings will be without both Thielen and Dalvin Cook on Thursday night.”

A medical expert corroborated several NFL insider reports that indicated the same doubts of Thielen’s in-time recovery. Bad news keeps piling on the Vikings as their starting players keeps getting injured with no assurance of returning anytime soon.
