Dealing with ankle injury

Jefferson (ankle) missed Wednesday's practice with an ankle injury.

It's a new injury, same as the foot issue that kept fellow wideout Adam Thielen off the practice field Wednesday. However, both played at least 90 percent of snaps in Sunday's 19-17 win over Detroit, and there hasn't been a report to suggest either injury is serious. All eyes will be on Minnesota's injury report Thursday, as the star wideouts are joined by RBs Dalvin Cook (ankle) and Alexander Mattison (shoulder), the latter of whom also missed Wednesday's practice.
