Original Story – Zimmer “thinks” Adam Thielen will be ready for Sunday
Minnesota Vikings head coach, Mike Zimmer, got back on Zoom today and he had some news to break. “He thinks” Adam Thielen will be off the COVID/Reserve List in time to play vs the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday.

This would be a big deal, especially with the Vikings offense already clicking on all cylinders, both with and without Adam in the lineup over the past couple weeks.
Whether Thielen is “ready to go” or not, the Vikings should have no issue disposing of the disgraceful Jacksonville Jaguars this weekend. No matter who they play, the options available to Kirk Cousins when Adam is on the field, can be put up against any offense in the league.
It’ll be good to have Mr. Minnesota back, especially with the Vikings knocking on the playoff door (again).
