The Minnesota Vikings could look to bring in a new face to their wide receiver room with Justin Jefferson out for at least the next four weeks.

The Minnesota Vikings crappy season just about got completely flushed with the news that Justin Jefferson is being placed on injured reserve with a hamstring injury.

Jefferson is out for at least four weeks, but anyone who remotely follows the NFL knows that these injuries tend to linger, especially for receivers, and it's possible that he misses more time than that.

The Vikings currently only have three receivers on their active roster, but they will likely call up N'Keal Harry or Trishton Jackson to flesh that sucker out. The question is, is Minnesota content with the options on their practice squad, or will they go out and find a new face to add to their receiving corps?

The Vikings don't just have to scour the free agent market, they can also snipe anyone they like off another team's practice squad as long as they sign them to their active roster. That does give the team some options.

With all that being said, here are five wide receivers Minnesota could look to bring while Jefferson recovers from his hamstring injury.
