Vikings' Justin Jefferson suffers chest injury vs. Raiders, ruled out



In his first game back after a two-month absence, Minnesota Vikings receiver Justin Jefferson made it through two series before departing Sunday's game against the Las Vegas Raiders because of a chest injury.

The injury occurred with 9:54 remaining in the second quarter. Jefferson jumped to catch a high pass from quarterback Josh Dobbs and was hit hard by Raiders safety Marcus Epps at the end of a 15-yard reception. Jefferson grabbed his lower back and immediately left the field. In all, he caught two passes on three targets for 27 yards while playing a total of 13 snaps.
