WR: Justin Jefferson

Speaking to media Thursday, Justin Jefferson said he will be limited in today's practice session but he expects to play Sunday against the Panthers.

Ultimately it would have been surprising if Jefferson had sat out with the tear that he's been on, but this is trending in a direction where you can start him with confidence on Sunday. Carolina's pass rushing prowess is probably something to keep an eye on as the Vikings offensive line and Kirk Cousins traditionally don't have great games together against elite units, but even in a dead zone for the Vikings against Cleveland courtesy of Myles Garrett, Jefferson gave us 84 yards and a touchdown.
