Adam Thielen practices Friday, not listed on injury report

The Vikings should have one of their top receiving threats back on the field this weekend.

Adam Thielen (hamstring) made it through practice unscathed this week and all signs point to him suiting up on Sunday. He was not listed on the team’s injury report on Friday. Considering other injuries that popped up this week, getting Thielen back will be big for the Vikings’ offense.

The Vikings will be without their number two running back against the Chargers. Alexander Mattison did not participate in practice the entire week and was ruled out on Friday. Mike Boone and Ameer Abullah will be called upon to spell Dalvin Cook with Mattison unable to play.

Bisi Johnson, who was added to the injury report on Thursday with a quad injury, was listed as questionable. Same goes for cornerback Xavier Rhodes, who is dealing with an ankle issue.

Jayron Kearse (toe) missed his second straight practice on Friday and will miss Sunday’s game in Los Angeles.
