DETROIT (AP) – Minnesota Vikings receiver Stefon Diggs is inactive for Thursday’s game against the Detroit Lions.

Diggs was questionable on the team’s injury report Wednesday with a knee injury, and losing him in a matchup of first-place teams is a blow for Minnesota. Cordarrelle Patterson is expected to start in Diggs’ place.

Vikings cornerback Terence Newman is out with a neck injury and is expected to be replaced by Trae Waynes.

Lions linebacker DeAndre Levy is inactive with a knee injury.

Here’s the list of the inactives in the opener of the NFL’s tripleheader.



Vikings: DT Sharrif Floyd, CB Marcus Sherels.

Lions: LB DeAndre Levy, S Don Carey, RB Justin Forsett, OL Joe Dahl, OT Cornelius Lucas, QB Jake Rudock.
