Once again the Vikings will be without wide receiver Adam Thielen when they travel to Seattle to play the Seahawks on Monday Night.

Thielen injured his hamstring against the Detroit Lions in Week 7 and had made just one appearance since, playing sparingly against the Chiefs. 

In 8 games this season, Thielen has 27 catches, 391 receiving yards and six touchdowns.

The Vikings also ruled out defensive tackle Jayln Holmes. Other notable starters such as Harrison Smith, Anthony Harris and Linval Joseph were also questionable at practice this week but hopefully should be able to play.

After having their bye last week, the Vikings haven't played a game in over two weeks but have a big test against MVP-favorite Russell Wilson on Monday Night Football.
