Report: Stefon Diggs unlikely to play Thursday vs. Lions

The Minnesota Vikings are expected to be without Stefon Diggs for Thursday’s game against the Detroit Lions.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that even though Diggs is listed as questionable on the injury report, the second-year wide receiver is “unlikely” to play due to a knee injury he sustained last Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals.

Diggs, 22, leads the team in receiving with 67 catches for 747 yards and two touchdowns. He had 13 catches for 80 yards in a 22-16 loss to Detroit earlier this season.

The Vikings and Lions are tied for the NFC North at 6-4.

Adam Thielen and Cordarrelle Patterson stand to gain more attention in the Vikings’ offense, which ranks dead last entering Week 12.
