Adam Thielen out, but 4 other key starters active for 'Monday Night Football'

Really good news for the Vikings.

Good news for the Vikings as the injury report has been released 90 minutes before kickoff and four key starters will suit up and give it a go against Seattle. 

Safety Harrison Smith (hamstring), safety Anthony Harris (groin), nose tackle Linval Joseph (knee) and defensive tackle Shamar Stephen (knee) were all questionable entering the day, but all four are active. 

Wide receiver Adam Thielen is out with a hamstring injury and linebacker Ben Gedeon will miss another game due to a concussion. 

Meanwhile, the Seahawks have at least eight players battling the flu, including leading wide receiver Tyler Lockett, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. All eight are expected to play through the illness. 

Kickoff is at 7:15 p.m. Central Time.
