Justin Jefferson says his toe is fine

Vikings fans who remain intoxicated by the fumes of Sunday’s Western New York rollercoaster got a splash of cold water in the face on Wednesday, when receiver Justin Jefferson was listed as limited in practice with a toe injury.

They can now exhale. Via Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press, Jefferson told reporters that he’s fine.

Fine is a fuzzy term. He clearly has a condition that required some sort of treatment. But, based on his statement, it won’t be an issue on Sunday against the Cowboys.

Jefferson already has 1,060 receiving yards this season. He’s on pace for more than 2,000. He’s an intriguing long shot for MVP, with odds upwards of +10000.

No receiver has ever won the award. Then again, no receiver has ever racked up 2,000 receiving yards. And no receiver ever had a regular-season catch like the one Jefferson managed on Sunday.

    No one has ever had a regular season catch like that? No one?

    It’s an opinion, dude. And candidly, I think it’s a fair statement. I think it MIGHT be the best I ever saw.
    The OBJ catch was dang close. But he wasn’t grabbing it AWAY from a defender draped all over him who had BOTH HANDS on the ball, and Jefferson pulled it in with just ONE while being slammed to the ground. On 4th and 18.

    Sorry, not Sorry. Greatest I’ve ever seen. And I’ve been watching for about 55 years.

  2. Some teams have played more games than minnesota yet their top 3 WRs in yards combined are less than jefferson’s 1060. Wow. Both ways

  3. Jefferson has been targeted 392 times in his NFL career, 21 touchdowns.

    Allen Lazard has been targeted 214 times in his career, 19 touchdowns.

  4. Allen Lazard 4.5 seasons, 19 touchdowns.

    Justin Jefferson, 2.5 seasons, 21 touchdowns.

    JJ has two more TDs in two fewer seasons.
