Adam Thielen injury update

The Vikings have officially ruled out wide receiver Adam Thielen with the hamstring injury he suffered in the first quarter. Thielen suffered the injury when he caught a game-tying touchdown. Stefon Diggs currently leads the Vikings with three receptions for 52 yards

UPDATE: Thielen has been announced as questionable to return with a hamstring injury.

The Minnesota Vikings just evened the score with the Detroit Lions, but wide receiver Adam Thielen hurt himself on a great touchdown catch. Thielen got his toes in on a diving catch, but then slid into the wall just past the end zone.

Thielen made a crazy catch in the back of the end zone, but then needed help walking off the field. Trainers attended to him and walked with him off the field after the score. He went to the medical tent, and has since returned to the sideline. He was seen talking with coaches and trying to loosen up, according to NFL Network reporter Tom Pelissero.
