NFL Week 9 Injury Roundup: Vikings WR Adam Thielen Leaves Loss vs. Chiefs With Hamstring Injury


After missing Minnesota’s win over the Redskins last week, Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen came into Sunday's game with the Chiefs as questionable to play. 

He was ruled active Sunday morning, but Thielen seemed to have re-aggravated the hamstring injury in his right leg in the first quarter. He left the game after the fourth play of the Vikings's first scoring drive, failing to catch his only target, and did not return.

Here are the rest of the injuries around the NFL that we are tracking: 

Jacoby Brissett, QB, Colts - (Knee) 

Brissett was four-of-five for 59 yards before leaving the Colts' game against Pittsburgh in the first quarter after suffering a knee injury. The Steelers outlasted the Colts in Brissett's absence. 

Following the game, Indianapolis head coach Frank Reich said that Brissett's knee injury is "MCL-ish" and "looks at this point like a sprain."

Malcom Butler, CB, Titans - (Wrist)

The Titans CB suffered an apparent wrist injury on the Panthers's touchdown with 58 seconds left in the first half. 

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported shortly after Tennessee's loss that Butler had in fact broken his wrist.

Desean Jackson, WR, Eagles - (Abdomen)

The Eagles receiver returned to the field after missing the last six weeks with an abdominal injury. He finished with one catch for five yards, leaving the game in the first quarter. 

Trent Brown, OT, Raiders - QUESTIONABLE (Knee)

Oakland's right tackle left the game in the first half of the Raiders's matchup with Detroit.
