Diggs caught four of six targets for 76 yards in Monday night's 21-7 loss to the Seahawks. He also rushed once for five yards.
Diggs' performance was highlighted by a 48-yard reception during the second half. Prior to that, the Vikings offense struggled mightily to move the ball, and ultimately didn't muster any points until its final drive. Nonetheless, Diggs ended the evening as Minnesota's leader in the passing game, topping the 75-yard plateau for the fourth time in his last five games despite playing through a lingering knee ailment. The wideout will look to keep his strong stretch going in Week 15 versus the Dolphins.
Diggs (knee) does not carry an injury designation into Monday's contest against the Seahawks.
Diggs has been undergoing regular maintenance-related practice designations since late November and never appeared in any danger of missing Monday's contest. The 25-year-old will aim to build on his 2018 numbers against a Seattle defense that is allowing 250.7 passing yards per game.
Diggs (knee) practiced in a limited fashion Friday, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
If his practice regimen the last two weeks is any indication, the Vikings may keep Diggs on a maintenance plan as long as he's tending to a knee injury. In the sole game in which he played through the issue, he reeled in five of six targets for 49 yards Week 13 at New England. If he does the same Monday in Seattle, he'll face the league's 19th-ranked pass defense (250.7 yards per game).
Diggs (knee) was limited at Thursday's practice, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
After one capped practice, Diggs has already matched his activity level from a week ago, when we went on to be active at New England and haul in five of his six targets for 49 yards. The target count equaled his second fewest of the season, so the fact he appears healthier this week could result in an increase in looks. Assuming he staves off the issue and suits up Sunday in Seattle, Diggs will be looking to produce against a defense that has allowed 8.4 YPT and 12 touchdowns to wide receivers in 12 games this season.
Diggs (knee) caught all five of his targets for 49 yards during Sunday's 24-10 loss to the Patriots.
Diggs' availability was in question due to a nagging knee injury, but he progressed well enough during the week to suit up. He clearly wasn't at his best, but he still led the team in receiving yardage, though that was more a reflection of his team's inability to generate much offense through the air. Diggs will have an extra day to recuperate before next Monday's matchup with the Seahawks and should be on track to play, barring any setbacks during the week.
