Star Vikings receiver out against Bears, to be placed on IR

by - Senior Editor -

Tough news for Vikings fans.

Star receiver Justin Jefferson will be placed on the injured reserve with his right hamstring strain he suffered in Sunday's 27-20 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs, according to multiple reports.

Jefferson will be out for at least four games.

The Bears (1-4) will face off against the Vikings (1-4) on Sunday as this injury news will greatly impact the game, as Jefferson is one of the top playmakers in the NFL. He is already a three-time Pro Bowler in the early stages of his pro career.

He has 36 catches for 571 yards and three touchdowns this season.

Last season, he had 128 catches for 1,809 yards.
