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.
