The Vikings returned to the practice field Monday after their Week 6 bye, but they did so without WR Stefon Diggs. The Minneapolis Star Tribune reports that Diggs sat out with the groin injury that cost him the Week 5 game and "has bothered him for a couple weeks." We'll certainly be watching his status throughout the week. WR Jarius Wright also missed practice. WR Adam Thielen reportedly ran as the lead wideout.
Vikings WR Jarius Wright is expected to miss "a game or 2" with a hand injury suffered last week, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Wright played 60% of Minnesota's offensive snaps in the first 3 games, totaling 5 catches on 9 targets for 72 yards. With WR Charles Johnson (ribs) looking iffy for Week 4, the Vikings are hurting at WR. Note that WR Adam Thielen has actually played the 4th most snaps so far -- 14 more than WR Cordarrelle Patterson.
