According to Ben Goessling of the Star Tribune the locker of Josh Doctson has not been cleared out since he was waived by the team earlier in the week. It’s possible the team brings him back or elevates a receiver from the practice squad. Davion Davis, Dillon Mitchell and Alexander Hollins are options to be called up from the practice squad.

The Vikings on Sunday announced that Adam Thielen (hamstring) has been downgraded to out of the team’s Monday night matchup in Seattle. Thielen missed a practice this week due to a “slight scare” and he told reporters on Friday that he would not play if his hamstring wasn’t feeling 100 percent.

Thielen will miss his fourth game of the season with the issue. He originally injured his hamstring while catching a touchdown pass during the Vikings’ Week 7 victory over Detroit on Oct. 20.

The Vikings currently have three receivers on the active roster; Stefon Diggs, Bisi Johnson and Laquon Treadwell. A roster move is expected to add some depth at the position before the game.

Defensive tackle Jalyn Holmes (not injury related) will also miss Monday Night Football against the Seahawks.
