With three receivers listed on their Friday injury report, the Minnesota Vikings will have the most productive among them active today against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Stefon Diggs, the Vikings’ leading receiver, missed their last game against the Houston Texans because of a groin injury that has been giving him problems for more than a month. However, after practicing on a limited basis on Wednesday and Thursday, Diggs was a full participant on Friday and listed as questionable.

Diggs is active against the Eagles, but first-round pick Laquon Treadwell was also listed as questionable on Friday with a thumb injury and had been limited in the Vikings’ last three practices. He is inactive, along with Jarius Wright, who was also limited in all three practices leading up to the Philadelphia game with an ankle injury and was listed as doubtful on Friday.

In addition to Wright and Treadwell, DT Sharrif Floyd (knee) and TE MyCole Pruitt (knee) were ruled out on Friday. Also inactive are LB Kentrell Brothers, C Nick Easton and OL Willie Beavers.
