Minnesota Vikings injury updates

Injuries have hit the Minnesota Vikings pretty hard this season. While some players have been lost for the season, others have been on short-term injured reserve and could come back to the team very soon.

Wide receiver Justin Jefferson and quarterback Nick Mullens have both been designated to return from their injuries and are in the practice window. They are eligible to be activated as soon as they are physically able.

Wednesday's practice was interesting as well. Running back Alexander Mattison and cornerback Akayleb Evans did not practice while quarterback Jaren Hall and tight end T.J. Hockenson were limited in activities.

The good news is that wide receiver K.J. Osborn and quarterback Josh Dobbs were full participants. Both of those individuals are likely to be good to go for the Minnesota Vikings game against the Denver Broncos this week.
