Stefon Diggs doesn’t practice for non-injury reasons

A frustrating start to the 2019 season for Vikings wide receiver Stefon Diggs now includes an absence from Wednesday’s practice.

The Vikings listed Diggs as a non-participant in practice. The explanation given by the team was that it was not injury related, but there’s no other word on why he was out and what his outlook is for the rest of the week.

Diggs had six catches on 12 targets for 101 yards through the first three weeks of the season and set new 2019 highs with seven catches for 108 yards in last Sunday’s loss to the Bears. He lost a fumble against Chicago, however, and has two lost fumbles on the season.

Safety Anthony Harris also missed practice, although he was absent due to a quad injury. Offensive lineman Josh Kline (concussion), linebacker Kentrell Brothers (wrist, hamstring), center Garrett Bradbury (shoulder) and cornerback Mackensie Alexander (elbow, groin) were all limited.

  1. Prepping for a trade? It wouldn’t make sense to put him through a practice where he could potentially get hurt if they’re close to trading him

  2. Diggs hasn’t spoken to the media for 2 weeks.
    Was seen visibly upset on the sideline Sunday.

    Misses practice today for a unknown reason. It is looking like Stefon wants out of Minnesota and who could blame him?

  3. Whether the Vikings, as a whole, are just embracing the suck, or we have a full fledged schism on our hands, it’s obvious that dysfunction permeates that locker room.
    Quickly dispatching the Giants on Sunday will help solve some of this.
    But if they fail to do even that, no amount of scapegoating will likely save Zimmer’s job.

  4. He has requested a trade send him to Washington for the left tackle holdout if he thinks MN has issues send him to NFL hell. Bye Bye Diva

  5. Trade him to the Patriots for Gostkowski. With an artificial hip and a walker, Gost will be as good as new!

  6. I guess DeFillipo wasn’t the issue after all? Running the OC out of town because he wanted to utilize the forward pass and reverting to 1960s football was a brilliant move.

  7. Save the trade gossip. Remember we were so desperate for wideouts we resigned Treadwell. He isn’t on the block.

  8. Probably hanging with his agent, working out any deal that gets him to a team that isn’ collapsing in its locker room. One of several KC casualties.

  9. So he followed a bunch of Patriot players on IG, so now some of ya all think he’s going to New England? Lol. Great detective work Sherlock! New England is pretty stocked at WR. If he goes, it will give Olabisi Johnson a shot. Ever think he doesn’t want to be traded? No y’all just assume.

  10. Hurt feelings are not on the NFL’s list of injuries to select from. Vikes had no choice but to list him as a non-participant in practice…

  11. I knew signing Cousins was going to stress the team as far as cap goes for the play of an average QB play, but I don’t think ANYONE expected this mess.

    The “Best Duo” in the league doesn’t matter when the coach wants to emphasise running as much as Zimmer, and your QB is Cousins, and now neither of them are happy.

  12. From the looks of that terrible showing in Chicago, I’m guessing the entire offense doesn’t practice on a regular basis.
