Minnesota Vikings wide receiver, Adam Thielen, is expected to miss Sunday’s game vs the Carolina Panthers, per a report from ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler.
Vikings WR Adam Thielen is not expected to play Sunday against the Panthers, per source. He remains on the Covid-19 list, and barring a change this weekend, he's bracing to have to sit. Thielen leads the league with 11 TDs.— Jeremy Fowler (@JFowlerESPN) November 27, 2020
We’ll how Thielen’s absence affects the Vikings offense, especially in the red zone. Obviously, we can expect more targets for Justin Jefferson, which many have been calling for anyway.
Can Jefferson take advantage of the extra attention from Cousins, even while the defense keeps closer tabs on him too? Will we see more guys up in the box, ready to stop Dalvin Cook (probably).
More Chad and Bisi
Kirk Cousins has raved about Chad Beebe all season but his admiration has yet to unfold in any significant way on game day or in a box score. Bisi Johnson started out ahead of Justin Jefferson on the depth chart but hasn’t really been heard from since JJ took over.
If anything changes to Adam Thielen’s status on Sunday, we’ll be here.
