Thielen missed Wednesday's practice with a foot injury.

He was one of six Vikings to sit out the session due to an injury, with the group including Thielen, Justin Jefferson (ankle) and running back Alexander Mattison (shoulder). Top back Dalvin Cook (ankle), meanwhile, was a limited participant. The Vikings haven't suggested any o the aforementioned non-participants are dealing with serious injuries, and each of Thielen, Jefferson and Mattison handled full workloads in the dramatic Week 5 win over Detroit. The team now has a Week 6 contest at Carolina on tap, with an injury report that's sure to attract the attention of fantasy managers. A return to practice Thursday would alleviate most concerns regarding Thielen.
