WOLF SPORTS PROJECTION

Justin Jefferson | Vikings WR

Justin Jefferson is dealing with a sprained AC joint, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Jefferson went down hard on a rep and was helped by several trainers before heading inside, so it’s good to hear it’s “nothing serious”—though the second-year wideout will undergo more testing. If nothing else, this news could end any chance Minnesota would risk playing Jefferson in preseason action.

The Vikings activated Justin Jefferson from the reserve/COVID-19 list.

Minnesota’s first-round pick is ready to roll and should be a significant piece in Gary Kubiak’s offense as a projected starter alongside Adam Thielen.

Justin Jefferson placed on reserve/COVID-19 list.

Teams cannot disclose whether a player actually has COVID-19, but being placed on the list means they either have the virus or came in close contact with someone that has the virus. Regardless, the first-round rookie receiver might now miss the start of training camp as he looks to get cleared so he can join the rest of his teammates in activities.

The Vikings have selected LSU wide receiver Justin Jefferson with the No. 22 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.

Jefferson lands with a veteran quarterback in Kirk Cousins with Minnesota after the team uses the Bills' first-round pick they acquired in the Stefon Diggs trade last month. He has played outside some in the past, but Jefferson operated almost exclusively out of the slot last season for LSU, totaling 111 receptions, 1,540 yards, and 18 touchdowns on the most prolific passing attack in college football history. There won’t be as much green space at the next level, but Jefferson has 4.43 speed and projects as a dangerous chain-mover with the ability to create operation on short/intermediate routes. There is a crowded group of rookie receivers in terms of fantasy value, but Jefferson will have a nice opportunity to make a case as one of the top options as he looks to fill the void left by Diggs.
