Removed from injury report
Thielen (foot) and Justin Jefferson (ankle) don't have injury designation and are set to play in Sunday's game against the Panthers, Courtney Cronin of ESPN.com reports.
The Vikings had busy injury reports throughout the week but now appear in good shape for the actual game. Thielen caught just five of 11 targets for 86 yards the past two weeks, but his snap shares (99 and 93 percent) suggest the foot injury isn't too much of a concern. He'll now face a Carolina defense that's given up a league-low 161.6 passing yards per game, though the Panthers have cooled off since they started the season hot with some help from an easy schedule.
