Justin Jefferson injury update: When will WR return to Vikings?

Unfortunately, fantasy football injuries happen every year.
One of the biggest names to come out on IR in recent years is Vikings WR Justin Jefferson.
Jefferson went down on October 8 with a hip injury. Fantasy owners and Vikings fans are now looking for updates on whether Justin Jefferson will return to the field.
Below is a timeline of when Jefferson is expected to be able to play again this season.
WHEN WILL JUSTIN JEFFERSON RETURN TO THE VIKINGS?

Fantasy football owners and Vikings fans want to know when Justin Jefferson will be back on the field in Minnesota.
The good news is that Jefferson is expected to return this season.
After the Vikings placed their star WR on IR on Oct.
11, the question is exactly when. Jefferson is eligible to return for the Vikings’ Week 10 game against the Saints on Sunday, Nov. 12.

Jefferson’s performance in this game isn’t a slam dunk, but Minnesota wants to give him some physical minutes before committing him back to the NFL. NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero reported on Oct. 15 that the Vikings will reevaluate Jefferson’s injury in early November.
Rather than fear that Jefferson will be shut out this season, it’s more that the 24-year-old will be aiming for another 1,000-plus receiving season.
“I think Jefferson will be back as soon as possible, regardless of his contract or experience with the team,” Pelissero said.

Here’s what the Vikings’ schedule will look like when Jefferson is expected to be ready to return.
Week 10 November 12: Saints vs.
Vikings

Week 11 November 19: vs.
