More bad news for the Vikings, coming off yesterday's loss to the Dallas Cowboys. The team today announced that it's placed receiver Adam Thielen on the Reserve/Covid-19 list.

That means Thielen either has the virus or has come in close contact with someone with the virus.

It's unclear what his status will be as the Vikings host the Carolina Panthers Sunday at US Bank Stadium.

Thielen caught eight passes for 123 yards and two touchdowns Sunday in the Vikings 31-28 loss to Dallas.
