After coming up short last weekend against the New Orleans Saints, the Minnesota Vikings will try to bounce back in a divisional matchup with the Detroit Lions.
The Vikings offense continues to find success through the air, as the duo of Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs are proving to be unstoppable. However, the former Maryland product is dealing with an injury to his ribs.
Earlier this afternoon, the team announced that Diggs is questionable for Sunday.

Although he did not practice on Wednesday and Thursday, he returned for today’s session.
In eight games this season, the 24-year-old wideout has 58 receptions for 587 yards and four touchdowns.
Not having Diggs would certainly change the dynamic of the game. With the Lions featuring one of the best cornerbacks in Darius Slay, it’s crucial that Minnesota has both superstar wide receivers.
Fortunately for the Vikings, the belief around the team is that Diggs will be healthy enough to play. In the event that he does miss time, Aldrick Robinson and Laquon Treadwell could see more opportunities.
