We reported the possible missed time with the thumb injury earlier today, and that's now confirmed. Taylor injured the thumb last week but did come back to the game. Today, sources said they were further evaluating the injury. Rapoport added a source said no decision was made on Injured Reserve as of yet. But, it’s possible, and will be decided later this week. Obviously, if the Colts think Taylor will only miss the couple of weeks, he'll avoid the IR, but a trip to IR means he'll miss four games. Moss will be a must-add if he's on your waiver wire.
The Vikings announced that they will be activating Justin Jefferson, which is no surprise because they need to do so before his 21-day practice window closes and he becomes ineligible to return to the field at any point this season.
The Vikings have a bye this coming week, but Jefferson looks like he'll be back in action for Week 14 when they play the Raiders. As the story said, Jefferson hurt his hamstring in October and has missed the last seven games while on injured reserve. He returned to practice on November 8 and has been listed as questionable to play the last couple of weeks without being put back on the active roster.
Schefter's post went on to say after watching Dobbs throw four interceptions in the 12-10 loss to the Bears, HC Kevin O'Connell said he will spend the bye week reviewing the best path forward. “We're going to take a look and really evaluate the inventory of plays we have of Josh,” said O'Connell, who thought about making an in-game QB change. Hall is back in the fold, as is Mullens, who the team also traded for, at the time to provide a better backup option for Kirk Cousins.
