Vikings’ Star Receiver Nears Return After Hamstring Setback…

Vikings’ Justin Jefferson is on the verge of making a comeback from his hamstring injury, which has kept him sidelined for six games this season, according to a report by NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero.

Although Jefferson won’t be participating in Monday night’s game against the Bears, extending his consecutive missed games to seven, he is anticipated to return after the team’s bye week for the matchup against the Raiders on December 10.

Following a hamstring injury in Week 5 against the Chiefs, Jefferson was placed on the injured reserve list, with the Vikings holding a 1–4 record at that juncture of the season.

Presently, with a 6–5 record, the team aims to prioritize Jefferson’s full recovery before reintegrating him into the lineup.

Vikings coach Kevin O’Connell had previously emphasized the team’s commitment to ensuring Jefferson’s complete recovery, desiring him to be at “100%” before resuming play.

In the five games played this season, Jefferson has accumulated 571 receiving yards and three touchdowns on 36 catches.
