The Vikings are favored by 3.5 points at Carolina.

Panthers rookie quarterback Bryce Young was a full participant at practice on Wednesday and is now trending toward playing on Sunday against Minnesota, according to coach Frank Reich. Young missed last Sunday’s game against the Seattle Seahawks with an ankle injury.

Former Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen plays for the Panthers, in three games Thielen has 20 receptions for 211 yards with two touchdowns.

The Vikings and Panthers are scheduled for a 1 p.m. (ET) kickoff on Sunday at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte.
