Diggs registered seven tackles, two pass breakups and one interception during Sunday's loss to the Rams.
Diggs was arguably the Lions' best defensive player on the field Sunday, mixing and matching at slot cornerback and deep safety throughout the game. His interception in the second quarter was arguably his best play, but the hard-hitting Diggs also delivered a pair of impressive blows that caused incompletions at two other critical points. The Texas product is now averaging 4.9 tackles per game entering a Week 14 matchup with the Cardinals.
Diggs posted 10 tackles (nine solo) in Sunday's 31-23 win over the Packers.
Diggs' 10 tackles were by far the most he's posted in a game this season. He and fellow safety Glover Quin combined for 23 tackles on the day, which played a huge role in slowing down the Packers' offense. The Lions have a bye in Week 6 before taking on the Dolphins in Week 7.
Diggs (hand) is active for Sunday's game versus the Packers.
Diggs is slated to start and he'll log another hefty workload. The fourth-year pro has 16 tackles (12 solo), four pass breakups and one pick-six through four game. Look for him to be active in coverage with the Packers starting strictly rookie wideouts beside Davante Adams.
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 cast, and it's not certain that Lions coaches will feel comfortable with Diggs playing against the Packers this weekend if he's still wearing it come Sunday.
