The Vikings list WR Adam Thielen (lower back) as questionable for Sunday's NFC Championship against the Eagles. He got in limited practices on Thursday and Friday, and we've heard nothing to suggest that he's in danger of missing this one. We'll continue to look for updates and will find out Thielen's official status around 5 pm ET on Sunday.

Vikings WR Adam Thielen missed Wednesday's practice with a lower back injury, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. That's all the info we have for now. Thielen never exited last weekend's game, and there's no reason at this point to believe he's in danger of missing Sunday's NFC Championship against the Eagles. But we'll keep a close eye on him over the next few days.

Adam Thielen operated as the Vikings' slot WR in Sunday's preseason game against the 49ers. Per Pro Football Focus' Nathan Jahnke, Thielen ran 20 routes from the inside during the 1st half. Stefon Diggs, the primary slot man last year, ran 0. WR Laquan Treadwell ran 2. Thielen caught all 5 of his targets for 50 yards vs. the 'Niners. If he sticks in the slot, it figures to raise his volume and catch rate. Diggs would head in the other direction -- but would likely improve on last year's 10.8 yards per catch. This will be a situation to watch closely in Week 1. We just adjusted our projections for both Thielen and Diggs.

Injury Predictor

Thielen has played three seasons in the NFL and hasn't missed a game. His first two seasons were rough but in his last 2016 season he had a huge breakout by quintupling his amount of catches and having more than 900 yards. Even with his season, he says he still has a long ways to go to be where he wants to be for this 2017 season.
