I'd like to see more of Jaleel this week. He looks like he can be disruptive in the middle although Johnson started strong vs Bears. Hope Diggs can get back to full speed.

I think he was activated because Stephen was banged up. Stephen's health will likely determine if he suits up again this week.

Via Wolfson:

"The Vikings had guys rushing Bridgewater from both DE positions (not hitting him). He was spinning out and moving well. He was throwing on the run and looked really good to me. It was only a 30-45-second snapshot. From what I saw Teddy looked really, really good.'

It's going to be tough without Diggs. Maybe Floyd or Treadwell will step up now given the chance for some PT.
