Stefon Diggs Injury Updates

Bills WRs Stefon Diggs (oblique) and Cole Beasley (knee) are active for today's game against the Colts. Diggs was expected to play, but Beasley had been genuinely questionable. He carries attractive upside against an Indy defense that tends to funnel action to the middle in the passing game. Of course, he also carries some risk of re-injury or playing limited snaps. Keep both aspects in mind as you set your lineups for the Wild Card round.

Bills WR Stefon Diggs is "a go" for Saturday's playoff opener against the Colts, despite his oblique injury, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo. Expect to have Diggs available for fantasy lineups. Teammate Cole Beasley (knee) is also "confident" he'll be able to play through the knee issue that cost him Week 17. Garafolo reports, though, that the Bills will need to assess his condition before the game Saturday to determine his availability. Beasley figures to be a risky fantasy option even if he plays. We'll confirm the status on both wideouts when the inactives come out around 11:30 a.m. ET.

Bills WR Stefon Diggs (oblique) is listed as questionable for Saturday's Wild Card game vs. the Colts. He got in limited practices on Tuesday and Thursday, sitting out in between. We don't know much about this injury but would be surprised if it kept Diggs out this weekend. We'll see if we get any updates on his status between now and kickoff.

Bills WR Stefon Diggs (foot) put in a full week of practice and isn't listed on the final injury report. He's ready to rock for Monday night's game vs. the Patriots.

NFL Network's Kim Jones reports that the Bills don't believe WR Stefon Diggs' foot injury is serious or that it'll affect his availability going forward. Exhale. We'll keep an eye on Diggs when Buffalo returns to practice next week, but it sounds like he'll be ready for next Monday night's game against the Patriots.

Bills WR Stefon Diggs was knocked out of Saturday's game against the Broncos in the 4th quarter with a foot injury. We'll update his status as soon as we know more. Diggs had a huge game before exiting, catching 11 of 13 targets for 147 yards. If he misses time, it'd mean more targets for WRs Cole Beasley, Gabriel Davis and John Brown, who seems set to return from his ankle injury next week.

Update: Per NFL Network's Kim Jones, Diggs was back on the sideline late in the game, "smiling and talking with teammates." That suggests that he avoided a serious injury.

Patriots CB Stephon Gilmore left Thursday's practice after he "tweaked" a knee, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The injury was apparently deemed minor after an MRI, but it's not yet clear whether it will keep him out of Sunday's game against the Bills. Losing Gilmore would improve the matchup for Buffalo WR Stefon Diggs.

Vikings WR Stefon Diggs (hamstring) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Falcons. After sitting out Wednesday, Diggs was limited on Thursday and Friday. We’ll find out his game status by noon ET on Sunday, but Diggs hasn’t played well through injury as a pro. Consider him a risky WR2 in Week 1 fantasy lineups.

Vikings WR Stefon Diggs missed Wednesday's practice with a hamstring injury. It's the 1st we've heard of it, but Diggs is now high on the Week 1 injury watch list. We'll see if he's able to get back on the field on Thursday.

Vikings WRs Adam Thielen (low back, calf) and WR Stefon Diggs (ribs) are both off the final Week 11 injury report. Thielen was limited all week, but we’ve heard nothing to suggest that he won’t be a full-go on Sunday night vs. Chicago. Diggs put in a full week of practice.

The Vikings expect to go without WR Stefon Diggs today against the Lions, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Diggs is dealing with a rib injury that kept him out of practice all week. His absence would likely mean more playing time for Aldrick Robinson. The switch certainly dings the upside of QB Kirk Cousins, but we wouldn't dramatically alter his fantasy outlook.

Vikings WR Stefon Diggs missed Wednesday's practice with a rib injury. ESPN's Courney Cronin believes Diggs suffered the injury in the 2nd quarter of Sunday night's loss to the Saints. He played the rest of the game, so we're tentatively expecting him to suit up this weekend vs. Detroit. But we'll continue to keep a close eye on him the rest of the week.

Jets CB Trumaine Johnson is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Vikings because of a quad injury thta continued to keep him out of practice all week. Johnson's absence doesn't really matter for IDP purposes, but it'll help Vikings WR Stefon Diggs' outlook. Jets slot CB Buster Skrine also remains out for the 2nd straight week with a concussion.

The Vikings and WR Stefon Diggs have agreed to a 5-year extension, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. It tacks on to the final season of his rookie deal, locking him up in Minnesota through the 2023 campaign. Although injuries have gotten in the way -- he's missed 8 games through 3 NFL seasons -- Diggs has averaged 5.0 catches and 61.8 yards per game. He's finished top 14 among WRs in PPR points per game each of the last 2 years. Turning just 25 in November, the arrow is still pointing up on Diggs.

Update: Diggs' extension has a base salary of $72 million and can be worth up to $81 million. He got $40 million in guarantees.

Vikings WR Stefon Diggs (knee) was did not practice on Tuesday. We don't have any details on his injury. Diggs has missed a bunch of practice time this year but played in 9 of 10 games. We'll have another update on his status tomorrow.

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.
