Raiders' Karl Joseph: Heading to Las Vegas
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joseph signed a contract with the Raiders on Friday.

Joseph spent his 2020 campaign with Cleveland, where he recorded 67 tackles (46 solo), one interception and four pass breakups through 14 games. When he was healthy, Joseph was an asset to the Browns' defense and will aim to play a similar role for Las Vegas this year.

Browns' Karl Joseph: Records pick in playoff loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joseph had four tackles and an interception in Sunday's 22-17 playoff loss to the Chiefs.

Joseph's pick stopped a potential game-clinching drive and gave the Browns a chance to take the lead, but they chose to punt on fourth-and-9 at their own 32 and never possessed the ball again. Joseph, who dealt with a hamstring injury that cost him time during the regular season, was a key piece of the defense when healthy. He becomes an unrestricted free agent in 2021.

Browns' Karl Joseph: Sparks first half scoring binge
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joseph had one tackle, one quarterback hit and recovered a fumble for a touchdown in Sunday's 48-37 wild-card win over Pittsburgh.

On the first play of the game, a snap sailed over the head of Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and bounced into the end zone where Joseph fell on it to open the scoring. On the next drive, Joseph's blitz led to a M.J. Stewart interception and Jarvis Landry touchdown. The Browns went on to build a 35-10 first-half lead and withstood a Pittsburgh second-half comeback. The fumble recovery was Joseph's third of the year, and the touchdown was the first of his career.

Browns' Karl Joseph: Activated off COVID list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joseph was activated off the reserve/COVID-19 list Saturday.

Joseph never actually tested positive for coronavirus, but he was considered a high-risk close contact. Barring any setbacks, he figures to take on his usual role as the team's starting strong safety.

Browns' Karl Joseph: Added to COVID-19 list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joseph was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list, Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Joseph is deemed a close contact of someone who tested positive for the virus, presumably an individual within the Browns' organization. He could be available for Sunday's game, in which Cleveland could clinch a playoff spot with a win over Pittsburgh.

Browns' Karl Joseph: Enjoys productive SNF performance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joseph tallied 10 tackles, including one tackle for loss, and two pass deflections during Sunday night's 20-6 win against the Giants.

The 2016 first-round draft choice has started three consecutive games at strong safety with Ronnie Harrison (shoulder) residing on injured reserve. Joseph's Week 15 outing was by far the best of the three, as his 10 tackles easily surpassed a previous season high of seven. With two pass breakups, the 27-year-old also equaled his total from Weeks 1 through 14 combined.

Browns' Karl Joseph: Good to go Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joseph (hamstring) is active for Sunday's game versus the Bengals, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

Joseph will return to the lineup after a two-game hiatus to face off against the state rival. Through the first four games of the season, Joseph played nearly every defensive snap at strong safety and recorded 23 tackles, a pass breakup and an interception. He'll now have his eye on rookie quarterback Joe Burrow, who has thrown four picks through six contests.

Browns' Karl Joseph: Questionable Week 7
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joseph (hamstring) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Bengals, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

The 27-year-old was a limited practice participant this week after missing the past two games but may be able to retake the field Sunday. Ronnie Harrison cleared the concussion protocol and is in line to start should Joseph be unable to face Cincinnati.

Browns' Karl Joseph: Practices Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joseph (hamstring) was a limited participant at Wednesday's practice, Dan Labbe of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Joseph missed the previous two games due to the injury but looks to get back on the field Week 7 against the Bengals. The player who took Joseph's spot in the lineup, Ronnie Harrison, also returned to practice Wednesday after clearing the league's concussion protocol.

Browns' Karl Joseph: Won't face Steelers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joseph (hamstring) is ruled out for Sunday's game in Pittsburgh, Andrew Gribble of the Browns' official site reports.

Joseph will miss his second straight contest due to a lingering hamstring injury, which sets up Ronnie Harrison to draw another start at strong safety. The Browns' Week 7 matchup against the Bengals will be Joseph's next opportunity to retake the field.

Browns' Karl Joseph: Missing more action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joseph (hamstring) was a nonparticipant during Wednesday's practice, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Joseph was forced to miss last week's win over the Colts with the hamstring issue, and, as evidenced by this news, he's trending in the wrong direction for Week 6. If he's forced to miss more action, Ronnie Harrison is expected to draw another start at strong safety.

Browns' Karl Joseph: Won't play Week 5
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joseph (hamstring) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Colts.

The 27-year-old was considered questionable with the hamstring injury and won't be available Sunday. Ronnie Harrison is poised to start in Joseph's absence.

Browns' Karl Joseph: Questionable Week 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joseph is questionable for Sunday's game versus Indianapolis with a hamstring injury, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

The 27-year-old has 23 total tackles and one interception through four games, but his status for Week 4 is up in the air. Coach Kevin Stefanski said the team will use the next 50 hours to see how Joseph responds after suffering the injury Thursday, so he may end up being a game-time decision.

Browns' Karl Joseph: Back on practice field
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joseph (foot) returned to practice Tuesday, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

A foot injury, which required surgery, ended Joseph's 2019 season after nine games, and he started training camp as a limited participant. The 26-year-old safety participated in 11-on-11 drills during Tuesday's session though, signaling that he's essentially at full health. Joseph is expected to start at strong safety for the Browns this year.

Browns' Karl Joseph: Limited practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joseph was limited at Friday's practice due to a foot injury, Mary Kay Cabot and Joshua Gunter of the Cleveland Plain Dealer report.

Joseph was activated from the active/PUP list last week, but he was not a full participant in the Browns' first training camp practice. He's slotted in as the starter at strong safety.

Browns' Karl Joseph: Comes off PUP list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Browns activated Joseph (foot) from the active/PUP list Saturday, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Joseph missed the final seven games of last season due to a significant foot injury that required surgery. Even though he kicked off camp on the PUP list, he was believed to be on course for Week 1, which more or less was confirmed with Saturday's move. In four campaigns with the Raiders, Joseph averaged 77.1 tackles and 1.3 interceptions per 16 games played. He'll look to fill a similar void as the Browns' starting strong safety in 2020.

Browns' Karl Joseph: Said to be on schedule
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Browns maintain that Joseph (foot) is on schedule in his rehab from November surgery, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Joseph signed a one-year contract in March while he was still rehabbing from the season-ending foot injury he'd suffered with the Raiders in November. He then said in April that he'd avoided any setbacks and was almost fully recovered, so it was a bit of a surprise to see him placed on the PUP list Monday. The Browns are still a couple weeks away from padded practices, giving Joseph a bit more time to recover. He seems to be a favorite for one of the starting jobs, but the Browns also have Andrew Sendejo, Grant Delpit and Sheldrick Redwine competing for safety snaps.

Browns' Karl Joseph: Placed on PUP list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Browns placed Joseph (foot) on the active/PUP list Monday.

Joseph underwent foot surgery this past November. He reportedly had not endured any setbacks as of April, but he's still clearly not ready for training camp. He projects as the team's starting strong safety when healthy. In his absence, J.T. Hassell and Elijah Benton presumably will get most of the reps at practice.

Browns' Karl Joseph: Recovery on track
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joseph (foot) has not experienced any setbacks since undergoing surgery in November, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Joseph agreed to a one-year contract with the Browns last month and signed to deal Monday. However, he has been unable to take his physical due to the current COVID-19 pandemic. His recovery is considered on the right track, so there should not be any concern at this point. The 2016 first-round pick projects as a Week 1 starter in the Browns secondary.

Browns' Karl Joseph: Inks deal with Cleveland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joseph (foot) signed a one-year contract with the Browns on Wednesday, Josina Anderson of ESPN reports.

Joseph injured his foot in Week 10 and required season-ending surgery, but before that, he compiled 49 tackles and three pass breakups through nine games with the Raiders. The 2016 first-round pick will likely be a Week 1 starter in the Cleveland secondary.
