EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) Minnesota Vikings starters WR Adam Thielen (lower back) and S Andrew Sendejo (concussion) are both listed as questionable for Sunday's NFC championship game against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Thielen, the Vikings' top receiver, was a limited participant in practice on Thursday and Friday after not practicing Wednesday. Sendejo is still in concussion protocol after being hurt in last Sunday's playoff victory over the New Orleans Saints, but he was a full participant in Friday's practice.
The veteran safety still must be tested Friday to see if he clears the protocol. Coach Mike Zimmer said Friday he is optimistic Sendejo will play. If Sendejo can't play, Anthony Harris will likely take his place.
