Jefferson took a huge shot while making a catch in the second quarter of today’s contest. He was slow to get up and eventually made his way to the sideline.

This is disheartening development for the Vikings as they had just gotten back their star receiver for today’s game. He caught two passes for 27 yards prior to his exit from the contest.
