Adam Thielen has been placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list, per a statement by the Minnesota Vikings.
As the team clearly lays out in this statement, we do not have any information as to whether Thielen has entered COVID protocol as a “close contact” or if he himself has tested positive.
If any news on that front leaks out, we will have it here. Should we find out that Thielen is positive, he will miss Sunday’s game against the Carolina Panthers. If he is considered a “close contact” case, then he will have the chance to play if he can test negative throughout the week.
