Vikings' Justin Jefferson (hamstring) deemed questionable for Week 12 contest

Minnesota Vikings head coach Kevin O'Connell told media members Monday that the team considers star receiver Justin Jefferson (hamstring, IR) "questionable" for their Week 12 game against the Chicago Bears.

What It Means:

The Vikings, who play on Monday night against the Chicago Bears, have a Week 13 bye on the horizon. Jefferson's 21-day practice window is already open, but the upcoming bye week wouldn't count towards those practice days, essentially acting as an additional ramp-up period for the All-Pro talent. Jefferson seems like he could be close to making a return, but the team may play it safe with their star's health and hold him out until Week 14.

Jefferson was averaging a career-best 114.2 yards per game with 3 touchdowns across 5 starts to open the year, but hasn't taken the field since suffering his Week 5 hamstring injury. Season-long fantasy managers may need to wait until nearly the beginning of the fantasy playoffs to start their first overall pick again.
