Thielen addressed the media on Thursday before practice.

"I was pretty optimistic last week," Thielen said. "I feel good. I feel like we have progressed and I will find out more after every practice. It's all about being close to 100 percent on game day and luckily I have three or four more days to figure that out."

Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes (knee) was limited in practice for the second straight day on Thursday.

Vikings Head Coach Mike Zimmer and the coaching staff are preparing for either Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes (knee) or backup Matt Moore, who replaced Mahomes in Week 7 and started in Week 8 against Green Bay.

"It's a challenge, obviously. I think you'll have calls based on their offense that you feel good about. Then you're going to have other calls based on that quarterback, other calls based on this quarterback, so you kind of put together your base plan and then you have plans for if he plays and if he doesn't play."

Mahomes was a limited participant in practice on Wednesday.
