Vikings wide receiver Stefon Diggs is a “long shot” to play Sunday against the Lions, according to NFL Media.
The #Vikings are expected to have RB Dalvin Cook (hamstring) on Sunday for a package of plays, assuming he has a good warmup, but WR Stefon Diggs (ribs) is a long shot to play, sources say.

Diggs was listed as questionable on Friday’s injury report as he nurses a rib injury.
The 24-year-old has 58 catches for 587 yards and four touchdowns this season.
Fellow Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen will likely see even more targets this week in Diggs’ absence.
Thielen has 74 catches for 924 yards and six touchdowns.
Running back Dalvin Cook (hamstring) is expected to play, though he will only be in on select packages.
