Justin Jefferson’s return to the Vikings offense will have to wait at least one more week. Currently tabbed as questionable for Sunday’s matchup against the Broncos, Jefferson will not be activated in time to take the field, according to ESPN.
The 24-year-old is considering himself as day-to-day while not putting a specific timetable on his return from his hamstring injury he suffered in Week 5. The All-Pro wideout said last week that he wants to be 100% before he returns to the field. The team designated Jefferson to return from injured reserve on November 8. That opened up his window and meant he could resume working out with his teammates. Upon opening up that window, Minnesota will now has until November 29 to activate Jefferson onto the 53-man roster or else he will revert to injured reserve for the remainder of the 2023 season.
Jefferson has been on injured reserve for the last month after he left the team’s Week 5 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs due to a hamstring injury.
