Stefon Diggs Injury Update: Will the Bills WR play against the Chiefs in the AFC Divisional?

The Buffalo Bills are coming off a remarkable victory against the Pittsburgh Steelers to play against the Chiefs in the AFC Divisional Round. However, the team didn’t only secure a victory in their last game but also a Stefon Diggs injury.

The WR is crucial for the team to win this coveted title, considering many other crucial players of the Bills are injured. According to recent reports on his injury, there is some hope for the WR’s participation in the next game.

Will Stefon Diggs play against the Chiefs?

Stefon Diggs is confirmed to play in the Divisional Round matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs. Despite suffering a foot injury in the wild-card win over the Pittsburgh Steelers, Diggs does not carry an injury designation for Sunday’s game.

The WR missed Thursday’s practice due to the foot injury but returned to a limited session on Friday, indicating positive progress. His injury was expected to limit his playing time in the next game, but the WR has fully healed.

NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport confirmed that Stefon Diggs is off the Bills’ injury report, emphasizing his readiness to play.

In the wild-card game against the Steelers, Diggs contributed significantly with 52 receiving yards on seven receptions. He remains the Bills’ leading receiver this season with 1,183 yards and eight touchdowns.

The Bills have reached the divisional round in the last three seasons and aim to make it to the AFC Championship for the first time since 2020. Coming off a 31-17 win over the Steelers, the Bills seek similar success against the Chiefs and won’t allow Stefon Diggs injury to become a hurdle in their path.

The Chiefs’ defense, known for its high sack count and efficiency in limiting opponents yards per attempt, poses a challenge for the Bills. With the absence of No. 2 receiver Gabe Davis due to a knee injury, having Diggs on the field becomes crucial for the Bills’ offensive strategy.

What caused Stefon Diggs’ injury?

The Buffalo Bills faced multiple injuries on both sides entering the Wild Card playoff meeting with the Pittsburgh Steelers, setting a challenging backdrop.

During the first half of the game, Stefon Diggs, the star receiver, experienced an injury scare that caught the attention of Bills fans. This occurred while making a catch near the end of the first half.

The receiver fell awkwardly after the catch, creating a moment of concern. His head briefly touched the ground, and he displayed visible discomfort, prompting onlookers to anxiously await updates on his condition.

Despite the injury, he quickly got up and jogged off to the sidelines. His prompt movement suggested a level of resilience and a potential positive outlook.

As Buffalo headed into halftime with a 21-7 lead, there was no official announcement from the Bills regarding the specific details of Diggs’ injury, leaving fans in suspense. Later, it was reported that he was suffering from a foot injury. 

But now, Stefon Diggs is off the injury list and the wide receiver is expected to participate in the team’s next game against the Chiefs.
