Justin Jefferson (hamstring) questionable for Monday night vs. Bears

After a loss to the Denver Broncos on Sunday night, the Minnesota Vikings have a decision to make regarding wide receiver Justin Jefferson’s status.

Head coach Kevin O’Connell spoke to the media on Monday and declared Jefferson questionable for next Monday night’s game against the Chicago Bears.

O’Connell did emphasize, as he has throughout the entire process, that they need to be cautious with Jefferson. The Vikings do have their bye week right after their game against the Bears, so they could essentially have a free week for Jefferson to get him back into the swing of things.

The Vikings loss to the Broncos may complicate things, but that doesn’t mean they will be rushing him back.
