Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Stefon Diggs will be active for the team's mega-matchup in Week 13 against the New England Patriots.
There was some question as to whether Diggs would suit up after his knee swelled up overnight and he had to test it pregame. Luckily, everything worked out and Diggs is good to go.

Diggs' active status is great news for multiple pieces of the Vikings' offense. Typically, Patriots head coach Bill Belichick will scheme his defense to take away the opposition's No. 1 threat -- in this case, that would be Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen. Look for the team to get Diggs and even tight end Kyle Rudolph involved a lot more if that's the case.
Playing alongside Thielen, Diggs has enjoyed a nice season with 79 catches on 11 targets for 790 receiving yards and six touchdowns.
