Vikings will 'wait and see' if Adam Thielen can play vs. Panthers

Adam Thielen's status for Sunday's game against the Carolina Panthers remains up in the air.

Coach Mike Zimmer said Wednesday he doesn't know whether Thielen might be cleared to play this week.

"We'll just have to wait and see as the week goes on," Zimmer said.

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reported Tuesday that Thielen tested positive for COVID-19 but also had a negative test. Further testing will determine whether it was a false-positive.

If the star receiver did indeed test positive, he would miss Sunday's game. If it was a false-positive, he should suit up for the 4-6 Vikings.
