It seems like ages ago that we passed along the news that Minnesota Vikings’ wide receiver Stefon Diggs will be taking part in an episode of Celebrity Family Feud, and indeed the announcement initially came out back around Memorial Day. Now, finally, after lo these many months, it appears that the episode is finally going to air.
San Francisco 49ers defensive lineman Arik Armstead posted this tweet earlier today:
Make sure u catch me and Team Veterans on #CelebrityFamilyFeud this Sunday 8/7 C on ABC playing to benefit the Professional Athletes Foundation! @NFLPA @stefondiggs @LG_Blount @TyrodTaylor @Geraldini93 pic.twitter.com/tXWsy6sM4Y— Arik Armstead (@arikarmstead) September 13, 2018
Armstead is one of Diggs’ teammates on “Team Veterans,” along with Cleveland Browns’ quarterback Tyrod Taylor, Detroit Lions’ running back Legarrette Blount, and Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive tackle Gerald McCoy. They will be taking on “Team Rookies,” which consists of players that were rookies in 2017, not this current season. Those players are Chicago Bears’ quarterback Mitchell Trubisky, New York Jets’ safety Jamal Adams, Cleveland Browns’ defensive lineman Myles Garrett, Jacksonville Jaguars’ offensive tackle Cam Robinson, and Buffalo Bills’ cornerback Tre’Davious White.
The episode will air on ABC this coming Sunday at 7:00 PM Central time. So, it will happen during the same time as the Sunday Night Football contest between the Dallas Cowboys and New York Giants, but hey. . .that’s what DVRs are for, right?
Both teams will be playing for different charities. Team Veterans will be playing for the Professional Athletes Foundation, while Team Rookies will be playing for the Fisher House Foundation.
Are you looking forward to seeing Stefon Diggs on Celebrity Family Feud, folks?
