Jefferson ranked third in the NFL in both targets (53) and receiving yards (571) at the time of the hamstring injury. Since being selected in the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft by Minnesota, Jefferson has been one of the league’s best players.
He has had at least 1,400 receiving yards each season and led the NFL with 128 catches for 1,809 yards in 2022.
The Vikings picked up Jefferson’s fifth-year contract option in April, and despite talks of a long-term extension happening last offseason, he and the team have yet to agree to a deal.
Last Thursday, Jefferson said he couldn’t put a date on when he might return, but wants to be fully healthy before he does.
