Vikings rule out Justin Jefferson for Sunday, make several other moves

Vikings rule out Justin Jefferson on Sunday, make several other moves For Justin Jefferson to return this Sunday when the team faces the New Orleans Saints, they will have to wait at least another week.
On Saturday, the Vikings officially demoted Jefferson to “out” of Sunday’s game.
That means sooner or later, we’ll see Jefferson again next week on Sunday Night Football, when the Vikings take on the Denver Broncos.
Jefferson was listed as “questionable” on the final injury report for the week after being limited in practice all week.
Head coach Kevin O’Connell said bringing Jefferson back for Sunday’s game might be a bit aggressive, and now he’s been proven right.
The Vikings made several other moves on Saturday, including elevating Sean Mannion from the practice squad to the active roster as Josh Dobbs’s backup.
It should be noted that Mannion could be released from the practice squad because he will be the team’s second outfielder, not third.
According to the new rules, a third midfielder must be on the active roster to act as an emergency midfielder, but since Mannion will be the main backup, a move up the squad is acceptable.
The team also advanced defensive lineman T.J.
Smith for Sunday’s game, marking the second straight week he’s been on the active roster after playing a pair of games against Atlanta last Sunday.
Finally, the team signed defenseman Nick Vigil to the 53-man roster.
Vigil, who is on his second tour with the Vikings, has been placed on the practice squad for the past two weeks and has averaged about 15 snaps per game on special teams during that period.
This will keep you up to date with all the Vikings’ moves ahead of tomorrow’s game.
If anything else happens, we’ll report it here as soon as we hear about it.
