Vikings' Linval Joseph: Returning from one-game absence
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Vikings' Linval Joseph: Questionable for Week 8
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Vikings' Linval Joseph: Inactive Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joseph (knee/shoulder/ankle) is inactive for Sunday's road game against the Jets, Andrew Krammer of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Putting in one limited practice this week wasn't enough for Joseph to gain the confidence of the training staff. With knee, shoulder and ankle injuries in tow, he'll yield his starting spot on the interior to some combination of defensive tackles Jaleel Johnson and Tom Johnson.

Vikings' Linval Joseph: Listed as questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joseph (ankle) carries a questionable designation into Sunday's contest against the Jets, Courtney Cronin of ESPN.com reports.

Joseph was unable to practice Wednesday and Thursday but was turned in a limited session Friday. It's unclear if that will be enough for Joseph to suit up in Week 7, but he should take on his normal starting role if available. The 30-year-old logged 41 defensive snaps in the Week 6 win over the Cardinals, finishing with three tackles.

Vikings' Linval Joseph: Still not practicing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joseph (ankle) did not practice Thursday.

Joseph has yet to practice this week as he recovers from ankle, knee and shoulder injuries. The veteran defensive tackle appears to be trending towards sitting out Sunday's game against the Jets, in which case Tom Johnson could benefit from an increased defensive workload.
