Kevin O’Connell calls Justin Jefferson questionable for Monday night
Vikings star receiver Justin Jefferson has not played since Oct. 8 when he injured his right hamstring in a game against the Chiefs.
He has practiced the past two weeks on a limited basis but was questionable for the past two games and didn’t play.
Vikings coach Kevin O’Connell said Jefferson is considered questionable for Monday Night Football, too.
“I know he had a really good week last week,” O’Connell said, via Alec Lewis of TheAthletic.com. “We’ll have an extra day this week. . . . As of right now, I view him as questionable for the football game.”
The Vikings want to “be smart” with the soft-tissue injury, something Jefferson himself said he would do. Jefferson noted that hamstring injuries can linger and come back, so he won’t push to return until the leg is fully healed.
The Vikings have their off week in Week 13, so Week 14 could be the first time the team sees Jefferson back on the field.
He remains on injured reserve for now.
