“It’s a day to day. You can’t really put a date on it at this very moment,” Jefferson said. 

“(The training staff) has been doing a phenomenal job with me. Making sure I’m feeling good. Making sure I’m getting the work that I need done, and the rehab and the treatment that I need.”

In his absence, rookie Jordan Addison has deputized well. Addison has caught 28 passes for 349 yards and five touchdowns in five games.

“It’s all about how I’m feeling and how strong the hamstring is. Hamstring is a difficult injury because it lingers,” Jefferson told reporters on Thursday. 

“It comes back from time to time if you don’t put the right treatment into it. The guys and the rest of the coaching staff in this building know my worth on the field. They want me 100 percent. As I do as well. I don’t want to go out there 80, 90 percent and have the chance of hurting it again. It’s day to day, like I said, and when that time comes I’ll definitely be ready to step out on that field.”
