Stefon Diggs returns to practice

The Vikings are back from their bye week and it looks like they may get their top wide receiver back in the lineup.

Stefon Diggs practiced on Wednesday as the team continued getting ready to face the Eagles in Philadelphia this Sunday. Diggs missed the team’s Week Five win over the Texans with a groin injury and Wednesday marks the first time that he’s been on the practice field since before the Week Four game against the Giants.

Diggs has 25 catches for 372 yards and a touchdown in his four appearances this season. Adam Thielen led the Vikings with seven catches for 127 yards with Diggs out of the lineup against Houston.

The Vikings also got quarterback Taylor Heinicke on the field for the first time since he had foot surgery in July. Heinicke was on the non-football injury list after hurting himself while kicking in a door and the team has 21 days to add him to the roster, waive him or shut him down for the rest of the season because of the injury.

    Nice hope he is 100%, no need to rush him back, best to have him for the long run!

    I can DIGG it!

    Probably do not need him for the Eagles game. Eagles are not quite the juggernaut we expected a few weeks ago.

    The Vikings are 0 and 0 and starting an 11 game season this Sunday.

    I wonder if he can produce at a high level for the whole season, or have that huge drop off as he did last year. He had start to his career when he hit the field only to do slow a LOT in the second half of the season,

    Diggs is fat. Aren’t I original?

    remember when the GB receiving core was their strength? I’m not sure any of their receives would make the Vikings roster! let that sink in!

    The only thing that really got my unwelcome attention was that Clemmings was playing LT with the starters in practice the last two days.

    Having Taylor Heinicke back is important. If Bradford goes down for any reason for more than a week, a younger more mobile QB like him will be important to have on the roster.

    Vikings defense will have the game over by halftime. Diggs won’t have to play much anyway.

    I’m with you on that one. I was even more happy to hear Heinicke was back at practice then I was about Diggs.

    5-0, depleted roster getting healthy, favored to win the rest of the games, the team no one wants to play…life is good

    It’s good to have the band back together…😀

    In a word, no.

    Diggs isn’t remotely fat.

    Lacy on the other hand, is.

    Finally some good news. Diggs healthy and very important, Taylor IS BACK. Love that kiddo.
