Thielen has back fractures

I mentioned a few days ago that Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen was questionable for Sunday’s NFC Championship Game against the Philadelphia Eagles. He’s been dealing with some back issues arising from a Marshon Lattimore in last week’s crazy win over the New Orleans Saints.

Well, now we know a little more about what he’s dealing with.

Ian Rapoport says that he’s got some “slight” back fractures that are “extremely painful.” He’s listed as questionable, but I haven’t seen anything that says he’s not going to gut it out.

I’m sure he’ll probably get it shot up pretty good as this is his first chance to play for the right to go to the Super Bowl. How long will he last? Well, we’ll all find out together.
