Worse than initially thought? Word is that he’s missing the game here in Dallas as well?
Yeah, that's the thing about rushing guys back too soon. It is so fkn dumb.
If I was running the show, I would not rush a key player back. Either he is healthy or not.... keep him out till he is healthy. It's not like it is a playoff game.... and even then, it would depend on the severity of the injury
Here's something to think about,Adam Theilen is to Diggs and this offense as Moss was to Carter and that offense. Im not comparing the two exactly but Diggs was double teamed all day vs the Chiefs and no other WR could step up. When both are healthy you kinda have to pick your poison.
Moss would be triple teamed at times and it didnt matter but that left a older CC one on one and he would always deliver. They were both all time greats and Diggs & Theilen are nowhere near them but many analysts think they're a top 3 duo but alone Diggs hasn't really made that leap.

Thielen didn't reinjure the hamstring, just thought he was ready to go, felt it tighten up on the handful of snaps he played against KC. No worse for the wear.
I'm not sure if he'll play against Dallas, but would guess they'll be a little more cautious now. Many fans calling for him to sit out for another four weeks until after the bye. In a tight playoff race, I'd expect him to play against Denver if he's ready.
I have a feeling that he is headed for IR for this season.
Hamstrings and groins are tricky injuries. If it isn't 100% the chances of injuring it again are very good. Just like Cook last season. He had his problems (I believe with his groin) and he wasn't the same all season.
It might be better to sit Thielen for a long stint and see if it will actually heal rather than doing what they just did with him for the KC game. One more time aggravating his hammy and he will be on IR.
