Justin Jefferson decision reportedly made by the Vikings.
After a stellar performance in Week 10, Justin Jefferson is a little sore, but he will still play for the Minnesota Vikings.
Jefferson will play despite having a turf toe, according to Peter Schrager on FOX's Sunday pre-game show (h/t Dov Kleiman).
On Wednesday and Thursday, Jefferson participated in practice to a limited extent, but on Friday, he was back to full strength.
He stated to Tom Pelissero of the NFL Network on Friday that he intended to take the field against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 11.
"I mean, I'm playing, so …" Jefferson said. "It don't really hurt. I just tried to make sure I wasn't overly doing it or overly stressing it out (in practice). But nothing major."
Jefferson is on pace to become the first receiver in NFL history to surpass 2,000 receiving yards with his astounding 117.8 receiving yards per game average this season.
According to ESPN's Field Yates, Jefferson is only 88 yards away from matching Randy Moss' mark for the most receiving yards in a player's first three seasons.
In 42 career games, the former LSU star has accumulated 4,076 yards.He helped the Vikings defeat the Buffalo Bills in overtime last Sunday with a season-high 193 receiving yards.
Late in the fourth quarter, Minnesota survived thanks to a remarkable one-handed catch that was made.
