The Vikings have fired HC Mike Zimmer and GM Rick Spielman, NFL Network reports. It ends an 8-year run for Zimmer and a 16-year run for Spielman in Minnesota. Zimmer's tenure brought just 3 seasons of double-digit wins and 2 playoff victories. We'll see who the Vikings hire to run the show going forward.

Vikings WR Adam Thielen will miss at least the rest of the regular season after undergoing ankle surgery on Tuesday, according to The Athletic's Chad Graff. NFL Network's Tom Pelissero adds that Thielen is expected to be sidelined for about a month, so Minnesota would need to make a deep playoff run if Thielen is going to play again before the 2022 season. K.J. Osborn will step in as the Vikings' #2 WR -- and WR Justin Jefferson will dominate targets -- for as long as Thielen is out.

Vikings WR Adam Thielen left in the 1st half of Sunday's game against the Rams with a left-ankle injury. The team calls him questionable to return. Thielen missed the past 2 games with a high left ankle sprain, and his reaction to today's injury sure made it look like an aggravation of the existing issue. We'll see whether he can make it back -- and then see about his availability for Week 17.

Update: Thielen returned for the start of the 2nd half. We'll see how that ankle holds up.

Vikings WR Adam Thielen (ankle) is active for today’s game vs. the Rams. He’s 3 weeks removed from a high-ankle sprain and was limited in practice all week. Thielen’s fantasy floor is lower than usual today.

Vikings WR Adam Thielen (ankle) is expected to play vs. the Rams today, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Thielen was left off the final injury report on the Vikings' website, but he's evidently actually listed as questionable. Regardless, it sounds like he'll be available for Week 16 fantasy lineups. Thielen was limited in practice all week coming off the December 5 high-ankle sprain, so he brings a lower floor than usual.

Vikings WR Adam Thielen (ankle) was limited in practice all week but isn’t listed on the final injury report. He’ll return for Sunday’s game vs. the Rams after missing the past 2. Thielen carries elevated risk in his 1st game back from a high-ankle sprain, but there’s plenty of upside here in a potential shootout.

Vikings WR Adam Thielen (ankle) remained limited in Thursday's practice. We'll see what he does tomorrow and how he's listed on the final injury report for Sunday's game vs. the Rams.

Vikings WR Adam Thielen (ankle) put in a limited practice on Wednesday. He reportedly had a chance to play vs. the Bears on Monday night, so we're tentatively expecting Thielen back for this weekend's game vs. the Rams.

Vikings WR Adam Thielen is inactive for tonight's game against the Bears. He was reportedly hoping to play, but the veteran didn't practice at all this week. We'll see about his chances for the Week 16 game against the Rams.

Vikings WR Adam Thielen (ankle) is listed as questionable for Monday night's game vs. the Bears. He didn't practice all week, though, so we'd be surprised if he played. Thielen should still be on fantasy benches right now. We'll let you know if we hear that he has a real chance to play on Monday.

Vikings WR Adam Thielen (ankle) missed practice again on Friday. He looks like a long shot to play vs. the Bears on Monday night, but we’ll get another update on his status on Saturday afternoon.

Vikings WR Adam Thielen (ankle) did not practice on Thursday. Recovering from a high-ankle sprain, he's unlikely to play vs. the Bears on Monday night. That'll keep K.J. Osborn in the WR3 mix.

Vikings WR Adam Thielen (ankle) is out for Thursday night's game against the Steelers. No surprise there. Reportedly dealing with a high-ankle sprain, Thielen figures to miss multiple games. K.J. Osborn will step in as Minnesota's #2 WR vs. Pittsburgh and is in the WR3 mix for Week 14.

Vikings WR Adam Thielen suffered a high-ankle sprain in Sunday's loss to the Lions, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. That usually means multiple missed games. Thielen will have further testing Monday to determine his return timeline. With Thielen out for most of the game, WR Justin Jefferson racked up 14 targets, TE Tyler Conklin 9 and WR K.J. Osborn 7. Conklin and Osborn will be in fantasy consideration as long as Thielen remains out. Minnesota gets just 3 days off before hosting the Steelers on Thursday night.

Vikings WR Adam Thielen hurt his left ankle in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game vs. the Lions. He's officially questionable to return. We'll update his status when we know more.

Update: Thielen has been ruled out.

Vikings WRs Justin Jefferson (ankle) and Adam Thielen (foot) aren't listed on the final injury report. Both guys got some time off in practice earlier this week but should be ready to play their usual roles vs. the Panthers on Sunday.

Vikings WRs Justin Jefferson (ankle) and Adam Thielen (foot) missed their 2nd straight practices on Thursday. We haven't heard any concern about their availability for this weekend's game vs. the Panthers, but make sure to check back tomorrow afternoon for another update.
