Vikings superstar wide receiver Justin Jefferson won’t play until full healthy

The Minnesota Vikings just got a huge boost toward their playoff push with star wide receiver Justin Jefferson nearing his return.

The Vikings saw the All-Pro wideout get back into practice for the first time since he suffered his hamstring injury against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 5. It also effectively opened the 21-day window for Minnesota to decide whether to activate him from the injured reserve back to the 53-man roster.

Despite the significant step forward, Jefferson voiced that he won’t play until he’s fully healed.

“The hamstring is a difficult injury just because it lingers and it comes back from time to time if you don’t put the right treatment into it,” Jefferson said via ESPN.

“The guys and the rest of the coaching staff in this building know my worth on the field and they want me at 100 percent, as I do as well. I don’t want to go out there at 80 or 90 percent and have the chance of hurting it again. It’s just day-to-day, and when that time comes, I’ll definitely be ready to step out there.”

Jefferson is making his way back from an extremely sensitive injury where he could experience a setback. It’s one that he needs to manage carefully to avoid missing more significant time.

Meanwhile, Jefferson knows his importance to the team as the primary offensive factor. He has 53 receptions for a team-best 571 receiving yards and three touchdowns.

If the Vikings hope to make a serious playoff push, Jefferson will need to be a huge part.
