Vikings' Diggs to play, Waynes out for MNF

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Stefon Diggs will play through a knee injury, while cornerback Trae Waynes was ruled out with a concussion for Monday night's game at the Seattle Seahawks.

Diggs was limited to a season-low 47 snaps (77 percent) against the New England Patriots last week, finishing with five catches for 49 yards in the 24-10 loss. He has been limited in practice this week but avoided the questionable tag for Monday's game.

Waynes suffered his second concussion of the year early in Sunday's loss and has yet to clear protocol. He previously was concussed in Week 4 and missed the team's Week 5 game 10 days later.

Undrafted rookie Holton Hill will make his second career start in Waynes' place. He played a season-high 57 snaps last week. The Vikings also relied on veteran Marcus Sherels -- who normally plays only special teams -- last week with Xavier Rhodes (hamstring) ailing, but Rhodes practiced in full this week.

Linebacker Eric Kendricks (rib) is questionable to face the Seahawks, but head coach Mike Zimmer said he expects him to play.
