As a star wide receiver for the Minnesota Vikings, Justin Jefferson has made it clear that his health is more important than any fantasy football manager’s desires for him to play. Since sustaining an injury in Week 5, Jefferson has been sidelined on injured reserve and will not return until he is fully recovered.
Despite being eligible to practice as of November 8, the Vikings’ coach Kevin O’Connell may choose to keep him out of the upcoming Monday night game against the Chicago Bears to take advantage of the ensuing bye week. This decision will be made based on Jefferson’s long-term career with the team, which is a top priority for O’Connell.
However, Jefferson emphasized that his health is paramount and that he will not rush back onto the field until he is confident that he can perform at his best without putting himself at risk. He understands that fans are eager to see him back in action, but his focus remains on ensuring that he can continue to excel on the field for years to come.
