Justin Jefferson: Justin Jefferson Sustains "Internal Chest Injury"

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Justin Jefferson (chest) was ruled out of Sunday's narrow win over the Raiders. The wideout was taken to the locker room before being transported to a local hospital for testing. Per head coach Kevin O'Connell, Jefferson suffered "an internal chest injury," although he's well enough to travel home with the team. Nevertheless, it's a tough blow for fantasy managers, especially since Jefferson just returned from a seven-game absence because of a hamstring injury. Fortunately, the Vikings are still in the postseason hunt, so there's hope for Jefferson to get healthy quickly. But the team also won't take chances with the superstar, meaning he may not be out there for the Week 15 encounter with the Cincinnati Bengals. Without him, T.J. Hockenson, Jordan Addison, and K.J. Osborn could see more attention from either Joshua Dobbs or Nick Mullens, depending on which signal-caller gets the start.
