Joseph (shoulder) will play Sunday against Washington, Matt Vensel of the Star Tribune reports. Joseph was sidelined the majority of practice this week but will take the field Sunday despite his shoulder aliment. The Vikings may limit the defensive tackle's reps, in which case Tom Johnson and Shamar Stephen are likely to see increased playing time.
Joseph (shoulder) is questionable to play Sunday against the Redskins. Joseph didn't practice Wednesday nor Thursday, but returned in limited fashion Friday. If he doesn't play, only Tom Johnson and Shamar Stephen remain as the Vikings' lone, healthy defensive tackles.
Joseph had five tackles, a sack and a tackle for a loss in Sunday's win at Tennessee. Joseph played 40 of 67 snaps on defense and showed his offseason toe surgery isn't a worry.
Joseph (foot) will have toe surgery during the offseason, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports This shouldn't come as any surprise, given that Joseph dealt with a foot injury throughout the entire second half of the season. He missed Weeks 12-16, but with 56 tackles in just 12 games, Joseph cemented his reputation as one of the league's better run-stopping interior linemen. He only has 12.5 sacks in 81 career games.
Joseph (foot) is listed as active Sunday versus the Seahawks. Absent from four of the last five regular season games due to a foot injury, Joseph may not be able to uphold his standard snap count from the first portion of the season. Even he bucks recent trends, though, he only posted 56 tackles (42 solo), including a half sack, and one forced fumble when active.
