Draft Scout Quandre Diggs News
10/03/18 - S Quandre Diggs broke his left hand in the third quarter of last week's loss to the Dallas Cowboys, but could return to action Sunday. Diggs practiced Wednesday with a cast on his hand, and even tried catching some light passes with the cast (he primarily used his right hand to catch the ball). Lions head coach Matt Patricia wouldn't speculate on whether Diggs will play this weekend, but he cited Jack Youngblood playing through a broken leg when asked how effective a defensive back can be playing with a casted hand. "Everybody's really different with different injuries that everybody has," Patricia said. "There's probably cases of players throughout the history of the league playing with different broken body parts. I'm pretty sure I remember a linebacker from Pittsburgh back in the '70s who broke his leg by the name of Jack Youngblood and I think he played with that at one point, too. So I really have no idea as far as that's concerned with all the different players." Youngblood was actually with the Rams, and played with a broken leg in the 1979 playoffs, including against Pittsburgh in the Super Bowl. If Diggs can't play, rookie third-round pick Tracy Walker could see an expanded role at safety.
10/02/18 - S Quandre Diggs sustained a broken hand during the team's 26-24 loss to the Dallas Cowboys, according to a report. NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported the injury, but was unclear if -- or how long -- Diggs would be sidelined. The Lions (1-3) will have a tall order on Sunday (1 p.m. ET) when they face Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers (2-1-1). Rookie Tracy Walker potentially would see an increase in workload in the absence of the 5-foot-9, 200-pound Diggs, who was signed to a three-year, $20.4 million contract extension this offseason.
09/03/18 - DB Quandre Diggs reached agreement with the Lions on a three-year contract extension, the Lions announced Monday. Terms of the deal were not announced but NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported the contract is worth $20.4 million. Diggs can play either cornerback or safety and his versatility made him valuable. He was entering the final year of his contract, which pays a base salary of $1.9 million. A sixth-round pick out of Texas in 2015, Diggs has appeared in 44 games with 19 starts. He became a starter last season, when he started 11 games, making the switch from slot cornerback to strong safety in December when Tavon Wilson suffered a torn biceps. Diggs had a career-high 55 tackles, a sack, three interceptions and nine passes defensed in 2017.
12/27/17 - S Quandre Diggs moved from slot cornerback to free safety last month after Tavon Wilson suffered a season-ending shoulder injury on Thanksgiving. Since then, he's had three interceptions, forced a fumble and logged the first sack of his career. Diggs has done enough to warrant staying at the safety position - or at least giving the Lions added flexibility in their secondary this offseason.
12/11/17 - CB Quandre Diggs, formerly the Lions' nickel corner, moved to safety to replace Tavon Wilson.
