Report: Minnesota Vikings will be without WR Adam Thielen vs. Detroit Lions

The Detroit Lions are dealing with several injuries, notably their starting quarterback Matthew Stafford, as they head into their divisional matchup this afternoon against the Minnesota Vikings.

But the Vikings are dealing with a few banged up bodies of their own. Per ESPN's Adam Schefter, Minnesota wide receiver Adam Thielen is listed as doubtful and not expected to suit up today. He's missed the past five games with a hamstring injury.

Meanwhile, offensive tackle and former Lion Riley Reiff, who is dealing with a concussion, is listed as questionable. He returned to practice Friday, but could be a game-time decision.

However, it looks like the Lions will have to deal with the likes of Dalvin Cook and Stefon Diggs. Cook left the 3rd quarter of Sunday's game against Seattle with a chest injury, but is listed as ready to go by the team's coaching staff.

Meanwhile, nose tackle Linval Joseph is expected to play as well.
