This shouldn't come as any surprise, given that Joseph dealt with a foot injury throughout the entire second half of the season. He did miss four games late in the season, 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, however, so his IDP value is limited.
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 if he bucks recent trends, though, he only posted 56 tackles (42 solo), including a half sack, and one forced fumble when active.
Linval Joseph (foot) is considered probable for Sunday's playoff game versus Seattle.
Joseph has dealt with a foot injury for the past month or so, causing him to play some weeks and miss others, but he's expected to play Sunday following a full practice to finish the week.
Joseph has missed four of the five last games due to a toe injury, but was able to get through practice Wednesday with no swelling or any other problems. With reference to the DT's status for Sunday's game against Seattle, coach Mike Zimmer said, "I think he'll be good to go." That said, an official decision on that front will likely be made after practice on Friday at the earliest.
Linval Joseph (foot) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Packers.
One of the league's better run-stuffing defensive tackles, Joseph has been bothered by a foot injury since at least mid-November. Although his absence is good news for Green Bay's Eddie Lacy, the Minnesota defense is otherwise in good health.
