Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer is anticipating Thielen will play in his team's Week 13 matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
"I think he'll be ready to go," Zimmer said Wednesday, according to NFL Network's Andrew Siciliano.
The Vikings didn't have Thielen for Sunday's victory over the Carolina Panthers after placing the receiver on the reserve/COVID-19 list. Minnesota powered through without the 30-year-old, compiling 387 yards of offense in a 28-27 victory.
Thielen has put up 646 receiving yards this season, making a particular impact in the end zone. He's connected with quarterback Kirk Cousins for 11 touchdowns this season.
The veteran wideout has formed a formidable tandem with rookie receiver Justin Jefferson, who has taken the league by storm with 918 receiving yards in 2020.
Minnesota enters Week 13 in the midst of a hot streak, winning four of its last five games after starting the year 1-5.
