Vikings WR Justin Jefferson is expected to miss 4-6 weeks with his hamstring injury, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. More specifically, Jefferson will undergo more imaging on that hamstring in four weeks to determine when he can return. Schefter then adds this: "Minnesota needs to help itself in the standings to ensure [Jefferson] will return. ... If the Vikings are unable to remain competitive, Jefferson would be expected to consider the reality that he and the organization did not come to an agreement on a long-term contract extension before this season." It's not the first time that Schefter has suggested that Jefferson might opt to remain out even after he's medically cleared. He's still worth keeping stashed on fantasy benches while we see how this plays out.
