The Lions will likely place Diggs on injured reserve in the coming days and add someone to their roster.
Diggs, 23, is a former sixth-round pick of the Lions back in May of last year. He’s currently in the second year of his four-year, $2.395 million contract and stands to make base salaries of $525,000 and $615,000 over the next two years.
In 2016, Diggs appeared in 12 games for the Lions and recorded 44 tackles, no interceptions, a forced fumble and a pass defense. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 106 cornerback out of 122 qualifying players.
