Is Justin Jefferson playing Sunday night? Fantasy injury update for Vikings-Broncos Week 11…
Justin Jefferson has been sidelined with a hamstring injury for over a month, and while there was hope he might return for the Week 11 Sunday Night Football matchup against Denver, recent practice updates have been less than encouraging.
Fantasy football owners face a crucial start ’em, sit ’em decision, but the good news is that Jefferson must be activated by 4 p.m. ET on Saturday. This provides advance warning for fantasy owners regarding his status for the game.
Updates on Jefferson’s condition will be provided until the official active/inactive report is released on Sunday around 6:45 p.m. ET. As of now, Jefferson has been limited in practice for the second consecutive week, resulting in a “questionable” tag.
Vikings’ coach Kevin O’Connell mentioned that Jefferson is in the “ramping-up phase,” though the overall sentiment has appeared slightly more negative than positive.
If activated from the IR by Saturday’s deadline, it signals Jefferson’s likely participation against the Broncos; otherwise, fantasy owners will have to wait for his potential return in the following week.
