Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen was ruled out for the second half of Sunday's game at Detroit due to an injured right ankle.

Thielen's feet got tangled up when he was being tackled for no gain by Lions cornerback Jerry Jacobs with 12:35 remaining in the first quarter.

He finished the game with one catch for zero yards on two targets.

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