The Minnesota Vikings will not have star receiver Adam Thielen in the lineup for their Sunday Night Football matchup against the Dallas Cowboys.

The team announced that Thielen, defensive tackle Linval Joseph and safety Andrew Sendejo have all been ruled out for the pivotal contest.

It’s not surprising that Thielen has been ruled out this weekend. He re-aggravated a hamstring injury during the team’s Week 9 loss to Kansas City and is could miss a couple weeks with this latest injury.

When healthy, Thielen is among the league’s most productive receivers. So far this season, he’s caught 27 passes for 391 yards and six touchdowns.
