Vikings rule out Thielen for Cowboys clash


The Minnesota Vikings will be without wide receiver Adam Thielen for their clash against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday.

Thielen suffered a hamstring injury during the Vikings’ 26-23 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs on November 3 and was ruled out of the meeting with the Cowboys.

The 29-year-old has scored seven touchdowns for the Vikings (6-3) this season.

“Wide receiver Adam Thielen (hamstring), cornerback Trae Waynes (ankle/not injury related), defensive tackle Linval Joseph (knee) and safety Andrew Sendejo (groin) all did not practice on Friday,” the Vikings said.

“Joseph, Sendejo and Thielen‬‪ were ruled out for Sunday’s game on Friday.”

The Vikings are second in the NFC North, just behind the Green Bay Packers (7-2) heading into their clash against the Cowboys (5-3).
