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.
