(Eagan, MN)  –  As Joshua Dobbs prepares for his first start with the Vikings on Sunday against the Saints, one of the leagues best targets probably won’t be available.  Justin Jefferson, who returned to practice on Wednesday and spoke to the media yesterday for the first time since suffering a hamstring injury against the Chiefs in Week Five, has been activated from injured reserve to the 53-man roster.  But he also told the media on Thursday “I don’t wanna go out there 80, 90 percent and have the chance of hurting it again.  It’s just day to day, and when that time comes, I’ll definitely be ready to step out on that field.”  Vikings head coach Kevin O’Connell said it would be “aggressive” to think Jefferson would be available on Sunday against the Saints.  The Vikings have won four straight and have run their record to 5-4.  The Saints are also 5-4 and riding a two game win streak with victories in Indy and against the Bears.  Kickoff is at noon on Sunday from U.S. Bank Stadium.
