Diggs (hand) was a limited participant in Wednesday's pratice, Michael Rothstein of ESPN.com reports.
Diggs, who fractured his hand during Sunday's loss to the Cowboys, wore a cast on his left arm, according to Justin Rogers of the Detroit News, which prevented the defensive back from taking part in select drills. There isn't a clear timetable for him to discard the appendage, and it's not certain that Lions coaches will feel comfortable with Diggs playing against the Packers this weekend if he's still wearing the cast come Sunday.
Diggs is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Cowboys due to a hand injury, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.
Diggs exited during the second half of Sunday's contest. With Tavon Wilson (back) also questionable to return, Detroit could remain without either strong safety for the remainder of the Week 4 tilt. Look for an update on Digg's health if he is unable to return to the field.
Diggs recorded four tackles, all solo, a pass defensed and returned an interception for a touchdown in Monday's loss to the Jets.
It was an abysmal night for the Lions defense, but Diggs was one of the lone bright spots. He intercepted Sam Darnold's first career pass, returning it for a score. Diggs' play has been elevated since moving to safety late last season; in six starts he now has four interceptions and one touchdown.
Diggs, who was entering the last year of his rookie contract, has evolved from an inconsistent slot cornerback to one of the most versatile defensive players on the Lions roster. Potentially on the verge of a breakout IDP season, Diggs isn't being pigeonholed to just one position and should see significant playing time at both safety and cornerback in 2018.
Diggs recorded 55 tackles, one sack, nine PBUs, three interceptions and one forced fumble across 16 games in 2017.
Diggs started the season as a slot cornerback but was moved to strong safety after Tavon Wilson (shoulder) was placed on injured reserve in late November. He performed very well in his new role, recording 22 tackles, his first career sack, one forced fumble and all three of his interceptions in five starts. With Wilson set to be an unrestricted free agent at the end of the league year, Diggs seems poised to enter the 2018 campaign as a starter alongside Glover Quin.
