Vikings WR Justin Jefferson Sprains AC Joint

By Adam Roberts – 8/6/2021

Justin Jefferson could be seen at Vikings’ practice today in visible pain at times, falling down on a number of targets. The final rep of practice for Jefferson saw him walk off the field holding his left wrist after Bashaud Breeland landed on him.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Jefferson is dealing with a sprained AC joint. In good news for Minnesota the injury doesn’t appear to be overly serious, although there will be further testing done on the wrist area this weekend. The testing will determine how long one of the more prolific Minnesota offensive weapons will be out of commission.

The Vikings can ill afford many injuries at practice, even if their starting quarterback Kirk Cousins is back off the COVID reserve list.

Minnesota opens the preseason August 14th against Denver at US Bank Stadium.
