Linval Joseph out of practice with knee injury

Defensive tackle Linval Joseph wasn’t on the Vikings injury report Wednesday, but things took a wrong turn before Thursday’s practice.

Joseph did not take part in the session because of a knee injury. It’s not clear when he was injured and there’s been no word from the team about his outlook for Sunday’s game against the Lions.

Linebacker Eric Kendricks was the only other player out of practice for Minnesota Thursday. Kendricks also sat out on Wednesday due to a hamstring injury that caused him to play a season-low 45 snaps against the Dolphins last Sunday.

Wide receiver Chad Beebe (hamstring), tight end David Morgan (knee) and guard Mike Remmers (low back) were all limited participants for the Vikings on Thursday.

  1. Jaleel Johnson is listed as Linval’s backup at right DT. I’m sure Tom Johnson could also slide to that spot.

    I’d prefer to have Linval playing.

    I want him back and healthy for the playoff game, no excuses when its one and done.


    Your precious Packers are assured to finish with a sub .500 record with Aaron Rodgers “leading” the team. If I were you I would be more concerned with that instead of the health of one Viking player.

    I am glad you are so confident that the Vikings will be in the playoffs. I am not. The Eagles have as good of a shot as the Vikings to get the final WC spot. This road game at Detroit could very easily be a loss and end our season. I also don’t think the Bears are just going to lay down for us.

    Skol, Vikings
