After reports that Stefon Diggs bailed on the Buffalo Bills’ first day of mandatory minicamp practice, the star wide receiver took to Instagram to respond to the story.

It’s certainly not an ideal look for Diggs, who was last seen yelling at franchise quarterback Josh Allen on the sidelines during the team’s blowout loss to the Cincinnati Bengals in the divisional round of last season’s playoffs.

Diggs posted two different messages on his Instagram story. The first said this: “I just be letting people cap. If them lies help you sleep better tell em big dawg.” The second said this: “My phone been silent for like 6 years. Ion play all them sounds and s***.” [via ProFootballTalk]

Last season, the 29-year-old Diggs hauled in 108 catches for 1,429 yards and 11 touchdowns, which led to him being named to his third-straight Pro Bowl and to the second All-Pro team.

Asked about the situation by reporters, Allen said that the team is “working on things internally.”

“Internally, we’re working on some things. Not football-related,” Allen said

“Stef, he’s my guy. I f****** love him. He’s a brother of mine. This does not work, what we’re doing here, without him.”

Head coach Sean McDermott, however, was a bit more terse in his response, as he said he’s “very concerned” about Diggs’s absence from day one of minicamp.

Since being traded to the Bills prior to the start of the 2020 season, Diggs has established himself as one of the best pass catchers in the league as he has had at least 100 catches, 1,200 yards, and eight touchdowns in each of those three seasons.

The Bills will certainly be hoping that the issues with Diggs get resolved sooner rather than later as the team, once again, heads into the season as one of the betting favorites to win next season’s Super Bowl. Currently, the Bills betting odds to win next year’s championship trail only the Kansas City Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles.
