Adam Thielen has been a full participant in practice all week, but head coach Mike Zimmer hasn't committed 100 percent to his star wide receiver playing Sunday when the Vikings play a difficult road game against the Kansas City Chiefs. 

"I have a crystal ball but I haven't used it this week so I don't know. We'll have to see on Sunday," said Zimmer on Friday. 

The Vikings followed by placing Thielen on the injured list with a questionable designation for Sunday's noon kickoff.  

"We'll probably put him through a workout," said Zimmer when asked if Thielen will test his injured hamstring before the game. 

No other Vikings are on the injury report as their enter the Week 9 contest in good health. 

For Kansas City, star quarterback Patrick Mahomes is questionable as he continues to rehab a dislocated kneecap he suffered just over two weeks ago. 

On Friday, Mahomes took reps as the second quarterback while Matt Moore worked with the first team during the part of practice open to the media, according to Nate Moore of The Athletic. Nothing official has been released by the team yet. 

And for the record, this guy is not Patrick Mahomes
