Vikings WR Justin Jefferson (hamstring) to miss next 4 games

Minnesota Vikings receiver Justin Jefferson will miss at least the next four games because of a strained right hamstring he suffered Sunday in the team's 27-20 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs, the biggest blow in what has been a catastrophic start to the team's season.

The Vikings plan to place Jefferson on injured reserve Tuesday, ESPN's Adam Schefter confirmed, to ensure that he does not return to the field too early and suffer a setback. The earliest he could be activated is for a Week 10 game against the New Orleans Saints, but the Vikings will determine at that point whether he's ready to resume playing or if he needs more time.
