As of this posting, nobody knows the severity of the injury. The rookie out of Alabama had a solid day, recording five receptions for 60 yards on six targets.
He appears to be ahead of Kyle Rudolph on the depth chart and should see a decent chunk of targets if Thielen misses the contest. The Vikings face off against a very bad Washington Redskins defense that cannot cover anybody.
Chris Herndon At some point, Chris Herndon is finally going to see the field. After serving a suspension to start the season, Herndon delayed his debut by aggravating his hamstring.
He should be on the road to recovery and has a decent chance to get back on the field in Week 8 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Do you need replacement options for injured players or those on byes this week?
At his best, Herndon has the ability to be a genuine threat in the passing game. Ben Watson Ben Watson is actually a pretty intriguing play heading into Week 8. Additionally, Julian Edelman and Phillip Dorsett are fighting through some fairly significant injuries of their own.
Somebody needs to catch passes from Tom Brady , and Watson might be that guy. However, he also received five targets and has an established rapport with Jacoby Brissett. Jack Doyle is an absolute worst-case scenario play, but he offers some upside in team leagues.
