Diggs was listed as a limited participant in practice due to an oblique injury he suffered earlier this month. Despite the ailment, he still played in each of Buffalo’s first two playoff games.
He was exceptional in those performances. Against the Colts in the Wildcard round, he caught six passes for 128 yards and a score. He followed that up with eight catches for 106 yards and a touchdown vs. the Ravens in the Divisional round.
Diggs has established himself as one of the best receivers in the NFL. He played in all 16 games this season and posted league-high numbers in receptions (127) and yards (1,535). He also recorded career highs in targets (166), yards per game (95.9) and catch percentage (76.5 percent).
Diggs is in his sixth season out of Maryland. He was drafted in the fifth round of the 2015 NFL Draft after posting three excellent seasons with the Terps.
The Bills will need Diggs to have another standout performance on Sunday as they battle the defending Super Bowl Champion Kansas City Chiefs.
Kickoff is at 6:40 p.m. ET on Sunday.
