Things are starting to look a little better for the Minnesota Vikings on the injury front. One of the team's biggest offensive weapons returned to practice Wednesday.

Stefon Diggs, who has been nursing a groin injury, returned to practice on a limited basis. It's a good sign for the Vikings because Diggs hasn't practiced since Minnesota's 24-10 victory over the New York Giants on Oct 3.

Diggs has 25 catches for 372 yards and a touchdown in the first four games that he played in. Diggs' biggest game came during the team's home opener at U.S. Bank Stadium, when he caught nine passes for 182 yards and a touchdown.

His efforts helped to lead the Vikings to a 17-14 victory over Green Bay that night.

While he was out, Minnesota-native Adam Thielen stepped in to help fill the void, he made seven grabs for 127 yards against Houston before the bye week.
