Stefon Diggs misses another Vikings practice

The Vikings were without a starting wide receiver at practice for the second straight day on Wednesday.

Stefon Diggs sat out Tuesday’s session with an illness and he wasn’t on the field as the team continued their preparations for Saturday’s game against the 49ers. The team will hold one more practice on Thursday before assigning injury designations for the game.

Diggs didn’t have a catch in the first half of last week’s win, but wound up with two catches for 19 yards that included a first-down on their game-winning drive in overtime.

The Vikings were also without defensive backs Mackensie Alexander (knee) and Jayron Kearse (toe, knee) at Wednesday’s practice. Alexander had arthroscopic knee surgery, so he won’t be playing this weekend.

  1. Diggs is pouting because even though they won, he didn’t get the ball enough. Shades of Odell with this one.

  2. I’m worried about this guy. I wonder if he’s going to be another Antonio Brown.

  3. Some people see one act of frustration in a huge game and assume he was pouting because he wasn’t getting the ball. The issue was that they had one drive in the second half that didn’t end with a punt. Add no targets to that and yeah, he got frustrated. Anyone notice D Hopkins did the exact same thing on Sat in their game vs Buffalo? Probably not, the Vikes seem to get a lot of attention….they are way more relevant compared to most other teams. Tix prices for the playoff games this weekend seem to indicate that as well. You know who doesn’t seem relevant based on Tix prices?

  4. Last weekend it like his panties were in a wad… More than he looked sick…
    Hope he gets them loosened up by this weekend.

  5. If the Viking beat the niners on Sat I have them making the SB. But realistically, 85% healthy niner squad vs a short rested vikings team, I dont know.
    Niners win 31-23 and cover.

  6. 9ers fans, just keep this stat in mind, when the Vikings run the ball 30 times or more during Zims tenure as coach of the Vikings, the Vikings are 40-0, read that again. 40-0 via Dustin Baker on Twitter.

    Jimmy G and Co. cannot score when they sitting on the bench.
