Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer told reporters that the team will continue to evaluate Adam Thielen, adding that the wide receiver has a "chance" to play this week against the Redskins. (Tom Pelissero on Twitter)
Thielen suffered what appeared to be a significant hamstring injury Sunday against the Lions, but he received good news on the injury Monday. Still, it was expected that he'd miss the game against Washington considering the short week. While it appears there is a chance he plays, it's worth wondering if the Vikings would really push such an important player in a very winnable matchup against the Redskins, especially considering the game is Thursday night.
