Vikings WR Stefon Diggs will play after being removed from injury report

Stefon Diggs has been a critical part of the Minnesota Vikings’ offense this season, but has missed quite a bit of time due to injury as well. Thankfully for the Vikings, they are getting healthy at the right time.

According to the Vikings’ official injury report, Diggs is no longer listed. That means that he will be able to return to action this week against the Seattle Seahawks on the road.

Minnesota needs to win this game in a big way. At this point in the season, the vikings have a 6-5-1 record, which still has them contention for a playoff spot in the NFC. Seattle, on the other hand, is also battling for a playoff spot and they have a 7-5 record and are ahead of the Vikings.

Diggs has put together a solid season so far in 2018. In the 11 games he has played this season, he has caught 84 passes for 839 yards and six touchdowns. Those numbers fit perfectly with fellow star wide receiver Adam Thielen, who has caught 98 passes for 1,166 yards and nine touchdowns.

Looking ahead at this week’s game, the Vikings will have to put up numbers offensively. Russell Wilson has been having a career year and the Seahawks are playing great football.

If the Vikings are able to pull off a big road win, they will be sitting in much better positioning. After getting off to a slow start this season, being 7-5-1 would give them a good feeling.

All of that being said, Stefon Diggs is ready to make his return and will be asked to be a major playmaker for the Vikings this week.
