EAGAN, Minn. — The Vikings on Saturday listed receiver Adam Thielen and cornerback Bashaud Breeland as questionable ahead of Minnesota's Week 15 Monday Night Football game against the Bears in Chicago.
Thielen has been rehabbing an ankle injury he suffered early in Minnesota's Week 13 game at Detroit.
He is tied for third in the NFL with 10 touchdown catches and has totaled 686 yards on 64 catches this season.
Breeland has been dealing with a groin injury for much of the season but was not on the injury report this week.
Head Coach Mike Zimmer said during Saturday's media session that Breeland's questionable status was "not injury related."
UPDATE: The team announced less than three hours later that Breeland had been waived.

The Vikings (6-7) and Bears (4-9) are scheduled to kick off at 7:15 p.m. (CT) at Soldier Field.
It is the first time in franchise history for Minnesota to follow a Thursday game with a Monday game, and the extra rest appears to have helped.
None of the other Vikings on the injury report — RB Dalvin Cook (shoulder), LB Eric Kendricks (low back), T Christian Darrisaw (ankle) and S Camryn Bynum (ankle) — received a designation.
RB Alexander Mattison, WR/PR Dede Westbrook and WR Dan Chisena are on the Reserve/COVID-19 list.
