Bradford, Diggs, Easton out for Vikings vs. Packers

The Minnesota Vikings will be without quarterback Sam Bradford and wide receiver Stefon Diggs in Sunday's border battle with the Green Bay Packers.

Keenum will get his fourth start of the season against the Packers at U.S. Bank Stadium.

He missed three games before returning for last Monday's 20-17 win at Chicago but was ineffective and replaced in the final minute of the first half by backup Case Keenum. Nick Easton might not be as big of a name as Diggs and Bradford, but is a strong piece of the Vikings offensive line, and his absence will likely be felt as well. He came in for Bradford against the Bears and finished with 140 yards on 17-of-21 passing and a touchdown.

Diggs suffered a groin injury Monday night. He was limited to 13 games last season because of a groin injury, which curtailed his ability to separate from defensive backs. Look for Michael Floyd to fill the role. Floyd was targeted one time in his return after a four-game suspension and had a critical 19-yard reception against the Bears.
