Adam Thielen was limited throughout the week due to a lower back injury suffered against the Saints. He played 77 of 81 snaps in that game, and he’s expected to try to play through the injury again during Sunday’s NFC title game, according to a source.
Thielen, who was limited in practices on Thursday and Friday, was listed questionable to play against the Eagles.
The Vikings’ quarterback pecking order is also expected to remain the same, another source told the Star Tribune, with Sam Bradford as the backup and Teddy Bridgewater inactive for a second consecutive playoff game. The Vikings have never had three quarterbacks active for a game under head coach Mike Zimmer.
It’s not yet clear if safety Andrew Sendejo (concussion) or cornerback Mackensie Alexander (rib/illness) will play after being listed questionable. However, Sendejo went through a full practice on Friday, meaning he could be medically cleared before kickoff.
