Vikings' WR Adam Thielen suffered a high ankle sprain during today's loss at Detroit, per source. He will undergo further testing Monday to determine how much time he'll miss. Vikings have short week with Thursday night game vs. Steelers.

#Vikings have a number of players (including Michigan natives Kirk Cousins and Tyler Conklin) warming up in Oxford High School T-shirts to honor victims of the shooting there this week. Former Vikings fullback Zach Line is the head football coach there. pic.twitter.com/gNUem7U6B1
Well it looks like Tyler Conklin isn't any better at LT than Oli Udoh
Justin Jefferson is closing in on a Super Bowl-era record for the most receiving yards in the first two seasons of a player's career. He passed Jerry Rice on Sunday, and is 147 yards from breaking Odell Beckham's record. pic.twitter.com/2vOlnFJNZt
K.J. Osborn catches his third touchdown of the season, his first since Week 6 against the Carolina Panthers.
Greg Joseph's FG makes it 20-9 with 9:26 left in the 3rd quarter.
back-to-back plays from the Vikings' fastest players -- Kene Nwangwu on third down, and then when that didn't work, Dan Chisena on fourth down.

25 touches, 124 yards, TD for Alexander Mattison, who played 86% of the snaps. Certified RB1 as long as Cook is out.

Dan Campbell and the Lions did it. Went down the field for a last second TD after all those heartbreaking losses. And expect to hear plenty about Mike Zimmer's job security down the stretch as Vikings drop to 5-7
#Vikings are going through warmups with the offensive line, from left to right, as follows: Oli Udoh Ezra Cleveland Garrett Bradbury Mason Cole Brian O'Neill
Cameron Dantzler played 10 yards off St. Brown, and Goff beat him on a hook route for the Lions' first win. Vikings are 5-7, ahead of Thursday's game against Pittsburgh.
18 yard PI on Bashaud Breeland. Lions move into Vikings territory.
Luke Stocker gets called for holding then Oli Udoh gets flagged for a false start. Penalties are killing this drive.
The Vikings did themselves no favors by trailing at halftime 20-6 in their Week 13 game against the Lions. If Minnesota wants to come back, it will need help from its wideout depth.
Adam Thielen has been downgraded to out in the Week 13 game, per Vikings Communications. Thielen suffered an injury in the first quarter of the game. He was originally ruled questionable with an ankle injury.
Thielen has 686 receiving yards and 10 touchdowns this year. While Jefferson is the Vikings’ leading receiver this year, the two-headed monster at wide receiver is what makes this Minnesota offense work. K.J. Osborn, Dede Westbrook and others will have to step up
Dan Campbell dedicated the game ball to the Oxford High School community. 🙏 (via @Lions) pic.twitter.com/EY0WbnQQ4j
The Lions up 23-21 with just over 4 minutes to go in the game just decided to go for it on 4th & 1 from their own 29. Jared Goff was strip sacked.
Maybe Williams doesn't get it, but it would've been a tough stop. Pretty sure Josh Reynolds was open behind the LBs, too, when Goff stepped up. twitter.com/NFL_DovKleiman…

Lions have had 4th-and-inches twice and Jamaal Williams has gotten zero touches. They're 0-for-2 on the Goff conversion attempts.

Amon-Ra St. Brown says he was "really shocked" that the Vikings' defensive backs weren't defending the goal line on the final play of Sunday's game, which resulted in St. Brown scoring the game-winning TD. wp.me/pbBqYq-c7OI
Things we love to see: Brock Wright's first career touchdown! #MINvsDET | 📺 CBS pic.twitter.com/YviR34tRrz
DETROIT — Jared Goff dropped back, looked left and let the football loose that Amon-Ra St. Brown squeezed tight as he sat in the end zone.
That set off a roar in Ford Field loud enough it might’ve been heard on Motor City streets.
Detroit finally found a way when Goff threw an 11-yard touchdown pass to St. Brown as time expired, lifting the previously winless Lions to a 29-27 victory over the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday.
“It feels good to stand in front of you now,” Goff said to reporters before answering a question
Almost like D'Andre Swift's absence forced the Lions to open things up in their passing attack.
Another great tackle in the open field by Jerry Jacobs. This kid seems to be a really good find for Detroit. #MINvsDET
Lions LBs have been much maligned, but Alex Anzalone and Derrick Barnes have come up with big run stuffs on two-point plays by the Vikings. Lions clinging to a 23-21 lead. 11:57 to go
Will Harris nearly picks one off from man coverage on third down. Julian Okwara gets a sack on fourth down. The Lions' defense is buzzing right now.
I don't think Dean Marlowe was supposed to be in coverage on Conklin there. He was trying hard to get someone's attention -- Anzalone? -- before the snap.
The Trey Flowers era in Detroit could be coming to an end. The Lions placed the outside linebacker on the injured reserve list on Saturday.
Flowers had already missed the last two games with a shoulder injury and was ruled out for Sunday’s game against Minnesota. He has battled the injury all season, missing two games earlier on as well. The veteran has a hefty price tag for the coming season and has not lived up to the lofty contract. He ended last season on injured reserve. Technically Flowers will be eligible to return as soon as Week 16
Good tackle by Derrick Barnes on the two-pointer, but Nick Williams blew that play up with a great jump off the snap. Lions clinging to a two-point lead.
There weren’t many surprises on the Detroit Lions’ inactive player list for the Week 13 matchup with the Minnesota Vikings. With four players already ruled out due to injuries, it was a pretty easy one to predict.
The primary names are running back D’Andre Swift and linebacker Jalen Reeves-Maybin, who starts on defense and also is a critical piece on special teams. Both were ruled out with injuries during the team’s final injury report for the week.
The Lions are keeping just two QBs active for this game with David Blough a healthy scratch. He has not played this season
