The Facts: Right before the start of the playoffs, Diggs appeared on the injury report with an oblique injury. Turns out it was a pretty serious injury. Diggs revealed this week that he went through the playoffs with a torn oblique.
Diehards Line:There was some mystery in terms of when the injury occurred. HC Sean McDermott said he couldn’t remember if the injury had occurred in Week 17 against the Dolphins, but added that it was possible. The injury limited Diggs throughout the week leading up to the Buffalo’s matchup against Indianapolis, but the NFL’s top receiver in 2020 looked great on Wild Card weekend finishing with a 6-128-1 stat line. Diggs went over 100 yards the following week against Baltimore as well (8-106-1) so no one would have guessed that Diggs’ oblique injury was serious.
