Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen did not participate in Wednesday's walk-through practice and was ruled out for Thursday's game against the visiting Pittsburgh Steelers.

Running back Dalvin Cook, however, was deemed limited in practice for the second straight day with a shoulder injury. He is listed as questionable to face the Steelers (6-5-1) after sitting out Minnesota's 29-27 loss to the Detroit Lions on Sunday.

Thielen sustained an injured right ankle while being tackled by Lions cornerback Jerry Jacobs early in the first quarter on Sunday.

Thielen, 31, has 64 receptions for 686 yards and 10 touchdowns in 12 games this season for the Vikings (5-7). The two-time Pro Bowl selection is in his eighth season with Minnesota.

Rookie offensive tackle Christian Darrisaw was ruled out for Thursday's contest after failing to practice this week due to an ankle injury.

Linebacker Blake Lynch and safety Camryn Bynum are listed as questionable for Thursday's game.
