A day after Stefon Diggs mysteriously missed Vikings practice due to "not injury related" reasons, the star wide receiver returned to the team facility, the start of a series of events that made Thursday one of the most surreal days in recent memory for the Vikings.
Diggs did little to quiet talk of his desire to potentially move elsewhere, though, when asked if he feels he's being heard inside the Vikings organization.
"I think the frustration is with you guys, it's not us, we're not frustrated", Thielen said. "You've got to talk to him".

Prince Harry followed in the footsteps of his late mom, Princess Diana , who famously walked through a minefield in Angola in 1997.
"I haven't communicated anything", Diggs said Thursday when asked whether he has formally requested to be traded.
Diggs added that his "resume and persona" should speak for themselves and vouch that he's not a me-first player, saying the only conversations he's had with the team are regarding what's happening on the field. Plus, the Vikings would take on a serious dead-money hit if they trade him away because the bonus money they already paid him would still count against the salary cap.
Diggs' target share has declined 4% in the first four games of the season from where it was a year ago.

The prosecution suggested, on cross-examination, that she cared more about herself at that moment than the man she had just shot. In the call, Guyger repeatedly tells a dispatcher, "I thought it was my apartment", and says, "I'm going to lose my job".
Sources indicated to ESPN that despite Diggs' frustrations with the Vikings' offense, which have been building for weeks, Minnesota has no intention of trading its star wideout, who signed a five-year extension in July 2018. "It's not one specific thing that would make me more satisfied".
Diggs admitted he wasn't happy with his team's offense - "I can't sit up here and act like everything is okay. Being a receiver and wanting to have success and win, if you're wanting to win and you're not winning of course you'll be frustrated".
After the team's loss to the Bears on Sunday, Diggs had some freaky tweets and Instagram posts which led people to believe he might want out of Minny.

So my hat's off to them in that scenario, because that can get out of hand in a hurry. "I don't think he did", said Humphrey. When it came to the Cleveland Browns, there was plenty of discussion this week about Rex Ryan.
But Diggs says whether or not he'll stay in Minnesota will depend on if "they want me here".
