Joseph had three total tackles in Monday's win over the Saints. He started at nose tackle and played 35 of 62 snaps on defense. He remains an elite force against the run, but has 16.5 sacks in 97 career games, however, so his IDP value is limited.
Joseph signed a four-year, $50 million contract extension with the Vikings on Saturday, ESPN's Kevin Seifert reports. Joseph will make $31.5 million in guaranteed money. Coming off a career year in which the 2010 second-rounder racked up 77 tackles, four sacks and three forced fumbles, Joseph is now set to stay in Minnesota through the 2022 season.
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.
