Vikings coach gives troubling hint about Justin Jefferson’s injury

Justin Jefferson’s injury is hinted at in a troubling way by the Vikings coach.

 

Wide receiver Justin Jefferson of the Minnesota Vikings left Sunday’s game against the Kansas City Chiefs due to a hamstring injury, and it appears he will likely be sidelined for some time going forward.

 

 

 

In the fourth quarter, Jefferson lost his balance while making a cut and suffered a hamstring injury.

Below is a video of the play.

 

Kevin O’Connell, the head coach of the Vikings, stated to the media on Monday that Jefferson’s injury is still being assessed.

The team will need to shield Jefferson “from himself,” according to O’Connell, who also noted that Jefferson is “down.”.

“.

 

 

That most likely means that Jefferson will need some time to recover.

The Vikings do not want to rush their best player back from injury and risk having a season-long hamstring problem.

 

 

With 571 receiving yards after five games, Jefferson is third in the NFL.

Last season, he had 1,809 yards, which was first in the league. The Vikings are currently 1-4, so if Jefferson is forced to miss one or more games, they could find themselves in a non even deeper hole.
