Diggs had six receptions (11 targets) for 77 yards in Sunday's 38-24 loss to the Chiefs in the AFC Championship Game. Josh Allen and the Bills' offensive line struggled against Kansas City's defense, resulting in modest outputs for the skill position players, Diggs included. In fact, the 26-year-old's final line was bolstered by an acrobatic big play that was made in garbage time. Despite a bitter finish, Diggs produced career highs in receptions (127), yards (1,535) and targets (166) while scoring eight times across 16 regular-season games. It is a rare occurrence to claim that a receiver that is as highly regarded as Diggs "broke out" in 2020, but that's exactly what happened after being traded to Buffalo last offseason. Allen and Diggs lifted each other's games to new levels, firmly placing each in the elite tier of their respective positions heading into the 2021 season.
Diggs (oblique) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game in Kansas City. Diggs followed the same practice pattern as last week, going LP, LP, FP. The lingering oblique issue hasn't slowed him down, with Diggs catching 14 passes for 234 yards and two TDs in two playoff games.
Diggs (oblique) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice. Diggs has been listed on the injury report with the same oblique injury throughout the playoffs, catching 14 passes for 234 yards and two touchdowns while playing 93 and 82 percent of snaps. The limited practice participation shouldn't impact his role in the AFC Championship Game, where he'll face a Chiefs defense that could be missing CB Bashaud Breeland (concussion/shoulder).
The Bills listed Diggs (oblique) as a limited participant at practice Wednesday. Diggs logged limited practice sessions last Tuesday and Wednesday before being listed as a full participant Thursday. He then entered Saturday's divisional-round win over the Ravens minus an injury designation, finishing the day with eight receptions on 11 targets for 106 yards and a touchdown. With no reported setbacks in that contest, his listed limitations Wednesday were likely maintenance-related. He should be ready to handle a full snap count in this weekend's AFC Championship Game in Kansas City.
Diggs corralled eight of 11 targets for 106 yards and a touchdown during Saturday's 17-3 divisional-round win against the Ravens. An oblique injury kept Diggs limited in practice Tuesday and Wednesday, but he entered the weekend devoid of an injury designation after practicing in full Thursday. The first-time Pro Bowl receiver got the festivities started immediately with a 13-yard catch on the Bills' opening play from scrimmage, and he proceeded to establish four receptions for 59 yards in the first half. It was his three-yard TD catch on Buffalo's first drive out of the halftime break that proved to be Diggs' most vital contribution, however. The 27-year-old is red-hot heading into the AFC Championship Game, with 100-plus receiving yards over five of his past six games, as well as a total of six TDs since Week 14. Buffalo hasn't faced Cleveland yet this season. Against the Bills' other potential opponent, Kansas City, Diggs totaled six catches for 46 yards and a TD in Week 6.
