Watts (hamstring) faces a four- to six-week recovery timeline, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Watts has already been placed on IR, so his season is over. This report reveals how serious the hamstring pull Watts suffered in the regular-season finale is, but the 23-year-old should be good to go for the offseason program. His absence mainly will affect the Vikings' depth on the defensive front, as he didn't play more than 20 defensive snaps until the team rested its starters in the finale.
