Bills wideout Stefon Diggs admits playing through an injury during the playoffs

Stefon Diggs put together nothing short of a terrific first season with the Buffalo Bills.

Diggs quickly became star quarterback Josh Allen’s favorite target, recording career-best numbers across the board. His 2020 season saw him play through injuries, especially in the playoffs dealing with an oblique injury.

The extent of Diggs’ injury never became revealed or even how he suffered it. Last week, the star wideout took to social media to finally clear the air, voicing that he played through a torn oblique muscle.

“I had a torn oblique, I thought I was mentally tough. But BEES is really different,” Diggs said on Twitter.

The injury will typically sideline a player for multiple weeks. However, Diggs performed through the injury, putting up strong numbers with 20 receptions on 31 targets for 311 receiving yards and two touchdowns.

It included him posting back-to-back games with north of 100 receiving yards and a touchdown reception. In the AFC championship game loss to the Kansas City Chiefs, he had six catches for 77 receiving yards.

Diggs’ ability to perform at that level despite the injury is nothing short of remarkable. It speaks to his mental toughness playing through a painful ailment.

The Bills’ wide receiving core is no stranger to doing just that, as Cole Beasley revealed after the season that he played through a broken bone in his leg. He recorded 14 receptions for 145 receiving yards in three playoff games.

Buffalo’s duo will return fully healthy, well ahead of the 2020 season.
