It appears as though the Minnesota Vikings injury bug that's been hovering around the team this season has finally passed with good news out of Minneapolis Tuesday afternoon. 

After sitting out of Minnesota's Week 9 matchup against the Detroit Lions with a rib injury, Vikings WR Stefon Diggs says he will play this weekend against the Chicago Bears. 

The Bears have been rolling in recent weeks, and a big part of that credit is due to phenomenal defensive play behind the likes of outside linebacker Khalil Mack and ILB Danny Trevathan. Chicago's defense has also been a huge reason why the Bears have now outscored opponents 54-7 in the first half of their last two games

It's a tough matchup for the Vikings passing game, but Diggs seems to be coming back at full health just at the right time. 

Diggs' teammate and fellow Vikings receiver Adam Thielen finally cooled off in Week 9 for his first game without 100 or more receiving yards all season (22 yards), leaving the Week 11 door wide open for a fantasy explosion from Diggs. 

The Vikings should also see a full return from RB Dalvin Cook in Week 11, and Cook's should help open up more of the passing game for Diggs as well.
