Vikings star receiver Justin Jefferson has been out of play since October 8th when he sustained a right hamstring injury during a game against the Chiefs. Despite practicing on a limited basis for the past two weeks, he was listed as questionable for the last two games and did not play. Vikings coach Kevin O’Connell has indicated that there is a possibility that Jefferson may not play in Monday Night Football either.
The coach mentioned that Jefferson had a good week of practice last week and that they will have an extra day this week to assess his status. As a result, he views Jefferson as questionable for the upcoming football game. The team is being cautious with Jefferson’s soft-tissue injury, a decision that Jefferson has also committed to. He understands that hamstring injuries can linger and has stated that he won’t rush his return until his leg is fully healed.
The Vikings have a week off in Week 13, so it’s possible that Week 14 might mark Jefferson’s return to the field. As of now, he remains on injured reserve.
