Updated (Sunday, Dec. 5, 2:51 p.m. EST): Adam Thielen has officially been ruled out for the remainder of the game.

Adam Thielen's fantasy managers received a tough blow on Sunday afternoon. In what could very well be a must-win fantasy week, Thielen left Week 13 with an ankle injury and is currently questionable to return.

While he hasn't officially been ruled out, it's looking very likely that he'll miss the rest of this game.

Adam Thielen Injury Update

Thielen left the game before recording a single yard, so if he's ruled out fantasy managers would be left with pretty much nothing from the 31-year-old. That's not what you need this late into the fantasy season.

It's a bummer, too, as Thielen had been absolutely rolling. He's averaging 6.2 receptions for 69.8 receiving yards with 6 touchdowns over his last six games. The veteran was fantasy's WR6 in PPR leagues during that span.

He'd be a WR2 if he can get back on the field for a Week 14 date with the Pittsburgh Steelers. But it'll be important to monitor his status this afternoon and throughout the rest of the week.
