The Minnesota Vikings have started the season a disappointing 1-4, and things got worse when star wide receiver Justin Jefferson (hamstring) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, meaning he will miss at least four games.
The 2022 NFL Offensive Player of the Year was hurt in the fourth quarter of Sunday’s 27-20 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs after catching three passes for 28 yards.

Jefferson was listed at +1200 (bet $10 to win $130 total) to win MVP heading into the season, but his odds have tumbled.
So have Minnesota’s odds to win the NFC North Division, going from +1000 to +1400.
The line for Sunday’s game at the Chicago Bears (1 p.m. ET, FOX and FOX Sports App) has yet to move, as the Vikings remain a 2.5-point favorite.
Here are the latest odds for Jefferson and the Vikings:
Jefferson wins MVP: +7500 (bet $10 to win $760 total), tied for 18th
Jefferson wins Offensive Player of the Year: +5000 (bet $10 to win $510 total), 11-way tie for 14th
Regular season wins: 6.5
