Bad news for Diggs on the Vikings' injury report

The Vikings will once again be without No. 1 receiver Stefon Diggs when they host the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday. 

Diggs, along with quarterback Sam Bradford (knee) and guard Nick Easton (calf), has been ruled out. It'll be the second consecutive week the trio has missed because of injuries. As for Diggs, it appears he's in a week-to-week situation considering the Vikings haven't given a timeline for his return. 

Michael Floyd (hamstring), Mackensie Alexander (hip), Riley Reiff (ankle) and Tramaine Brock (hamstring) are questionable.

With Diggs out the Vikings will likely give more reps to Laquon Treadwell, who made one of the best catches of the season last week against Green Bay. His role could increase even more considering there's a 50-50 chance Floyd plays. 

The Ravens could be down their top three receivers. Jeremy Maclin and Mike Wallace are questionable. Breshad Perriman is out. 

That's really bad news considering quarterback Joe Flacco is averaging just 157 yards/game with them.
