The Minnesota Vikings will be missing one of their top weapons in prime time against the Dallas Cowboys.

Star wide receiver Adam Thielen won't play in Sunday's game after reinjuring his hamstring in Week 9, the team announced Friday.

Thielen sat out the Vikings' win over the Washington Redskins in Week 8 before returning to face the Kansas City Chiefs. He suffered the injury in the first quarter and then sat out every practice this week.

With Thielen out against Washington, fellow receiver Stefon Diggs exploded for 143 yards on seven catches.

Laquon Treadwell, Chad Beebe, and Olabisi Johnson will take on expanded roles in the important conference clash with Thielen sidelined.
