Stefon Diggs and Xavier Rhodes are active for today's 3:25 p.m. kickoff between the Vikings and Patriots. 

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Diggs' knee swelled up overnight. He tested it during pregame warmups before being cleared to play. It's unclear what kind of knee injury Diggs is dealing with, but it kept him out of practice Wednesday and Thursday before he stepped onto the practice field in a limited basis on Friday. 

Rhodes is active despite suffering a hamstring injuryin last week's win over the Packers, an injury that head coach Mike Zimmer called "mild" and maintained optimism that Rhodes would be able to play this week 

Rhodes will have his hands full today against Josh Gordon and Julian Edelman.
