The Minnesota Vikings released their final injury report ahead of Sunday’s game with Atlanta, and three players are on it:
Mike Hughes has been ruled out for #ATLvsMIN.— Minnesota Vikings (@Vikings) September 6, 2019
Tyler Conklin and Stefon Diggs are officially questionable.
For Hughes, his long road back from his torn ACL and more will have to wait at least one more week. When he was a participant in practice the past few days, it kind of seemed like he was on track to play, but today’s injury report has ruled that out.
We heard about the Stefon Diggs news earlier in the week, and it caused a minor kerfuffle, but he practiced yesterday. When asked about his status for Sunday?
#Vikings coach Mike Zimmer on if Stefon Diggs will be able to play Sunday after being listed as questionable. "We'll see,''— Chris Tomasson (@christomasson) September 6, 2019
Based on the fact he practiced yesterday and today, I’ll be surprised if he doesn’t play, barring some big setback. For Tyler Conklin, today was the first day he was even on the injury report, and everyone practiced, at least on a minimum basis, so I think he’ll probably be on target to play, too:
All Vikings are practicing today at least on a limited basis, including Stefon Diggs and Mike Hughes, who were limited yesterday. Final injury report will be out later today.— Chris Tomasson (@christomasson) September 6, 2019
If anything changes, we’ll be sure to let you know.
Update: Looks like a rib issue for Conklin:
Conklin tweaked his ribs in practice today, but his availability likely isn’t at much risk from what I’ve been told.— Andrew Krammer (@Andrew_Krammer) September 6, 2019
Oh, this just in. Mitch Trubisky threw another incompletion.
