Minnesota Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer said that he expects wide receiver Adam Thielen to return this week.

Minnesota held Thielen out last week with a false negative coronavirus test, but he’ll be activated from the list ahead of Sunday’s matchup with the Jaguars.

In ten games played so far in 2020, Thielen has 49 receptions for 646 yards and 11 touchdowns.

Expect him to pick up right where he left off against a putrid Jacksonville defense.
