Vikings' Adam Thielen (COVID-19) receives positive and negative test results

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 on Monday following a positive test but a second test came back negative.

What It Means:

The additional information that Thielen tested positive is important because it would likely indicate a longer stay on the reserve list compared to being a close contact or high-risk close contact with someone else who tested positive. However, the presence of a negative test indicates that the initial positive may have been a false positive. If that's the case, Thielen could be cleared much faster and resume a normal week. At the moment, Thielen's status remains up in the air, with a wide range of outcomes possible. Stay tuned.

The Vikings are 4.5-point favorites over the Carolina Panthers in Week 12. Their implied team total of 26.5 points is the sixth-highest team total on Sunday's main slate, according to numberFire's DFS Heat Map.
