Thielen, Sendejo Set to Play vs. Eagles
The Minnesota Vikings will have a pair of key starters, wide receiver Adam Thielen and safety Andrew Sendejo, in their lineup tonight, according to multiple reports.
Thielen and Sendejo have been listed as questionable all week and were both limited in practice this week, Thielen is dealing with a lower back injury, that Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network describes as a "couple of slight fractures" from a hit he took last week in the Divisional Round against New Orleans. Rapoport said on NFL Netwrok that Thielen will be playing through "plenty of pain" in the game today.
Thielen is the Vikings’ top receiver target, with 91 catches this season and six more last week against the Saints.
Sendejo, who had a had a key interception against the Saints, suffered a concussion against New Orleans.
