Van Jefferson has experienced a lot in the past 12 months. In his brief NFL career, the receiver achieved 50 catches for the first time. After winning a Super Bowl, he hurried to the hospital to attend to his wife Samaria and bring his second baby into the world.
The list now includes surgery. According to Rams coach Sean McVay, Jefferson had “a little knee tweak” and will need a little operation to treat the condition. The Rams anticipate Jefferson to return in a few weeks, according to McVay, which reduces Jefferson’s availability for preseason practice but also puts him on schedule to perhaps return for the start of the season. About Monday, McVay called the pre-surgery comments on Jefferson “good news.” Along with Cooper Kupp and Allen Robinson, Jefferson will be a part of the offense when he is back.
