Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Justin Jefferson returned to the football field for the first time in two months on Sunday vs the Las Vegas Raiders and he left the stadium in an ambulance during the 1st half, en route to a local hospital with an undisclosed chest injury.

Unlike how the news was reported on the FOX TV broadcast, it was made clear in the Allegiant Stadium press box that JJ’s trip to the hospital is precautionary, in nature.

You can tell by the five consecutive tweets from media members who are in Vegas that all read pretty much the exact same way as Goessling’s above. You can never be too save with a chest injury. Let’s hope that means Jefferson’s health is not in danger.

As far as his 2023 football future, it still can’t be good. Here’s the high throw and hit that landed JJ in a local hospital. Earlier this week, we asked if the Vikings were making a mistake starting Josh Dobbs. Win or lose this evening, we have the answer to that question.
