UPDATE: Justin Jefferson has returned to the game with 10 minutes left in the third quarter.

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Justin Jefferson landed hard after getting tangled up with a defender. K.J. Osborn will take over for him for now, as he’s in the blue medical tent getting attention from trainers at the moment.

Jefferson almost had a big play early in the game, but he and Kirk Cousins weren’t on the same page. So far he has one reception for three yards and has been going head to head with Trevon Diggs.
