Vikings all-world wide receiver Justin Jefferson suffered a hamstring injury in the fourth quarter against the Chiefs. It happened on a third down play deep in Kansas City territory as Jefferson appeared to slip on the turf at U.S. Bank Stadium. 

The Vikings said Jefferson was questionable to return to the game. 

The turf will be under big-time scrutiny if Jefferson was indeed injured because of a slip. It's also worth noting that Chiefs star tight end Travis Kelce suffered an apparent ankle injury when he slipped on the turf in the second quarter.
