If Stefon Diggs is out, who steps up for Vikings?

What will the Vikings do without Stefon Diggs?

It is starting to look more and more like Stefon Diggs will not play in the Vikings' Thanksgiving Day game against the Detroit Lions.

Diggs hasn't practiced this week because of a knee injury. He leads the team with 67 catches for 747 yards receiving and has a pair of touchdowns.

He's among a bunch of Vikings officially considered questionable for Thursday's game.

If he's unable to go, the Vikings will be looking for someone to step up. That could give Cordarrelle Patterson, Adam Thielen and rookie Laquon Treadwell some big opportunities.

Patterson has been playing a larger role in the team's offense the last few weeks. He has 34 catches for 309 yards and 2 touchdowns.

"Every opportunity I get to go out there and make a play, I'm going to go out there and make a play," said Patterson on Vikings Gameplan this week.

While Thielen has already emerged as a starter opposite Diggs – he too could play a bigger role Thursday. Thielen is third on the team in receiving with 37 catches for 518 yards and three touchdowns.

Treadwell has seen more playing time as of late, but he has just one catch for 15 yards during his rookie season.
