Vikings' Adam Thielen: Returns to practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thielen (lower back) practiced in a limited capacity Thursday.

The listing follows Thielen's return to drills, signaling he's taking the necessary steps to ensure he's available for the NFC championship game. Ultimately, Friday's injury report will have the final say on his potential to suit up Sunday, when the Vikings will be facing the Eagles' 17th-ranked pass defense.

Vikings' Andrew Sendejo: Returns in limited capacity
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sendejo (concussion), who was a limited practice participant Wednesday, seems to be "on track to start" in Sunday's NFC championship game in Philadelphia, Kevin Seifert of ESPN.com reports.

Suiting up this weekend will depend on Sendejo's progress through the concussion protocol, but he's through enough of the five steps to take part in individual drills Wednesday, according to Tom Pelissero of NFL.com. Sendejo would improve his odds to play with a full practice by the end of the week. In the end, though, the Vikings' starting strong safety must receive clearance from an independent neurologist in order to do so.

Vikings' Adam Thielen: Tending to lower back injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thielen didn't practice Wednesday due to a lower back injury.

During the open portion of practice, Thielen watched from the side without a helmet in hand, per Courtney Cronin of ESPN.com. However, the notion that Thielen's absence was maintenance-related was backed up by Kevin Seifert of ESPN.com, who relayed the injury "is not believed to be serious." Ultimately, the next two days will provide an indication of Thielen's availability for Sunday's NFC championship game at Philadelphia.

Vikings' Adam Thielen: Not practicing Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thielen (undisclosed) wasn't active at the portion of Wednesday's practice open to the media, Courtney Cronin of ESPN.com reports.

While he was in attendance, Thielen wasn't holding a helmet, so it appears he's getting the day off for one reason or another. If his health is compromised, it will be revealed upon the release of Wednesday's injury report.

Vikings' Andrew Sendejo: Progressing through protocol
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer said Sendejo (concussion) would take part in individual drills during Wednesday's practice, Tom Pelissero of NFL.com reports.

Zimmer added that Sendejo had passed through some steps in the NFL's concussion protocol, which the safety entered Sunday after colliding with Saints wideout Michael Thomas in the Vikings' 29-24 divisional-round victory. Sendejo will likely need to resume taking contact in practice later this week and receive clearance from an independent neurologist before he's given the green light to play this weekend in the NFC championship against the Eagles. Anthony Harris would be next man up at safety if Sendejo is unable to play.
