Vikings defense tackle Linval Joseph returned to practice Sunday, according to ESPN.com, a day after he was shot in the leg at a nightclub following Friday's preseason game against the Raiders. Joseph isn't expected to miss more than two weeks, a source told ESPN.com.
The Vikings said in a statement Saturday that "Linval suffered a minor injury during the shooting when a stray bullet struck his calf. He was immediately taken to the hospital where he was treated for his injury and released. He is expected to return to his coaches and teammates this week. The entire Vikings organization is extremely thankful that Linval was not seriously hurt, and our thoughts are with all of the victims of this shooting."
According to StarTribune.com, police are looking for a gunman who shot nine people in the incident.
Joseph played nine snaps in the preseason opener and is the Vikings' starting nose tackle. He signed a five-year, $31.25 million deal in March after spending the first four years of his career with the Giants.
