NFL injury tracker Week 15: Justin Jefferson expects to play for Vikings; A.J. Dillon suffered broken thumb vs. Giants

Justin Jefferson is ready to play Saturday against the Cincinnati Bengals after suffering a chest injury in Week 14. The Minnesota Vikings wide receiver said he was going to play his typical number of routes after he was cleared of internal bleeding and broken ribs after being injured on a hit against the Las Vegas Raiders.

“He did probably more than I originally expected and responded really well to all the work,” Vikings head coach Kevin O’Connell said. “So we feel really good about where Justin’s at.”

Will A.J. Dillon be available for the Green Bay Packers on Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers? The running back suffered a broken thumb during Monday’s loss to the New York Giants and has yet to practice this week. The team is hoping to figure out a way for him to play.

“If it’s hurt, am I making it a bigger issue than it is down the road?” Dillon said via the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. “And the next question is will I be able to positively impact the team with me being out there?

“We’ve got some days left in the week and those are some questions I’ve got to figure out myself. If I can go, I’m going to go. I’ve played through some stuff in the past over the years where I’m hurting but obviously good enough to go. I try to be out there if I can. That doesn’t change.”

Aaron Jones has been out recovering from an MCL injury but has been back at practice and could be an option for Matt LaFleur.

“I’m making great strides,” he said. “I’m taking it day by day but I feel I’m confident for Sunday.”
