Joseph accrued four tackles (three solo) during Sunday's 35-3 loss to the Chiefs.
Joseph began his 2018 campaign in the dog house with just 11 defensive snaps heading into the Raiders' bye in Week 7, but he would eventually solidify himself as the team's starting strong safety upon a return to full health from a hamstring injury. The former first-rounder had even landed on the trade block at one point, but he finished the season with 48 tackles (34 solo), two sacks, two passes defensed and an interception in 13 games. He'll likely remain with the team in 2019 with one year left on his rookie contract, though a fifth-year option would become available the following season.
The third-year safety is closing out the season on a strong note, as he posted the same statistics in the Week 15 loss to the Bengals. His 44 tackles for the campaign are still well off the pace from his totals in 2017 (79) and 2016 (60), however.
Joseph recorded eight tackles (six solo), including a sack, in Sunday's loss to the Bengals.
Joseph's sack was the second of his career and his first this season. His eight tackles also tied his season high. He'll look to continue his quality play in Week 16, when the Raiders face off against the Broncos.
Joseph recorded five tackles (three solo) and an interception in Sunday's win over the Cardinals.
Joseph has had a lackluster year thus far, but his performance Sunday was his best of the season. His interception was his first pass defensed through seven games and his five tackles tied a season high. Joseph will aim to continue the solid play into Week 12, when the Raiders face off against Baltimore.
Joseph (hamstring) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice.
Joseph missed Oakland's previous three games while dealing with a hamstring issue, though he looks to be fully healed after returning from the bye week. Joseph has yet to make a tackle this season, and he'll look to change that in Week 8 against the Colts.
