Joseph (knee) does not have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Lions.
Joseph did not practice Thursday, but he was upgraded to a limited session Friday. The veteran defensive tackle will play through his knee injury against the Lions and could see a slight decrease in snaps as a result.
Joseph was a non-participant at practice Thursday due to a knee injury.
Joseph first appeared on the practice report Thursday. It's unclear when he suffered the injury or what the specifics of the issue are. He's missed just one game this season and has 52 tackles, including one sack, through 13 contests.
Joseph had 10 tackles (four solo) in Monday's 21-7 loss at Seattle.
Joseph had his busiest game of the year as the Seahawks had 42 rushing attempts on 64 offensive plays. The 30-year-old has 51 total tackles -- 17 of which have come in the last two weeks -- heading into the Week 15 matchup against the Dolphins.
Joseph (ankle) is listed as active Sunday against the Saints
Prior to landing on the Vikings' Week 7 inactive list, Joseph managed just one limited practice. On this occasion, he maintained a limited listing all week, which was enough for the training staff to give him the all-clear. Assuming he's almost all the way back, he should handle most of the reps at defensive tackle next to regular starter Sheldon Richardson.
Joseph (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Saints, Nick Underhill of The New Orleans Advocate reports.
Joseph sat out Minnesota's victory over the Jets in Week 7 due to knee, shoulder and ankle issues, and continues to recover from the injuries. It remains to be seen whether Joseph will suit up for Sunday's game against the Saints, but if he misses any time expect Tom Johnson to slot back into the starting lineup.
