Diggs confirms being 'frustrated' but hopes to play vs. Giants
Stefon Diggs' frustration with the Minnesota Vikings has been evident this season, and his teammates are now questioning whether the star wide receiver wants to remain with the squad, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
Diggs confirmed his frustrations and addressed ongoing trade rumors Thursday. "I can't sit up here and act like everything is OK," he told reporters, according to The Athletic's Chad Graff.
"There's truth to all rumors," he added. "And what I mean by that ... there was a lot of speculation of me being frustrated. Of course, being a receiver and wanting to have success and wanting to win. If you want to win and you're not winning, of course you'll be frustrated."
The former fifth-round pick said that he plans to suit up Sunday versus the New York Giants. "I hope (the Vikings) let me play," Diggs replied when asked about his status for the game.
The 25-year-old said he did not attend Wednesday's practice because he "hasn't been feeling well." He was a full participant Thursday.
While Diggs has been the subject of trade speculation, Minnesota is adamant that it will keep its star wideout unless it receives a substantial offer, Rapoport added.
Diggs has accumulated just 13 receptions for 209 yards and one touchdown through four games this season.
