Vikings S Andrew Sendejo will miss his 2nd straight game Sunday with a groin injury. DT Linval Joseph is questionable for the visit to the Jets. He's listed with ankle, knee and shoulder injuries and put in just a single limited practice on Friday. We'd try not to use Joseph in IDP lineups this week even if he's active.
Vikings DT Linval Joseph is doubtful for Sunday night's game at Green Bay after suffering a setback with the injured foot that cost him games earlier this season. Fortunately for Minnesota and IDP owners, all other defenders on the injury report this week are probable. That means you should use S Harrison Smith and DE Everson Griffen as you normally would.
The Vikings defense should be much closer to whole Sunday night against the Giants. S Harrison Smith (knee, hamstring), DT Linval Joseph (foot) and OLB Anthony Barr (groin) are all listed as probable after practicing all week. Barr and Joseph returned to full practices Friday after being limited the previous 2 days. Smith remained limited throughout the week. He seems like the biggest risk for aggravation, considering Smith's dealing with both knee and hamstring trouble. He'll carry high upside into the game, but you'll need to balance that against the injury risk as you consider your DB options. Joseph told the St. Paul Pioneer Press earlier this week: "I'm feeling good. Best I've felt in a long time." So he looks like a decent DL bet, especially considering how well he was performing before his injury. The Minnesota team D carries some fantasy upside against a Giants offense missing its best player, WR Odell Beckham.
The Vikings have ruled S Harrison Smith (knee) and OLB Anthony Barr (groin, hand) out for Sunday's game against the Bears. DT Linval Joseph (foot) will be a game-time decision. That makes him iffy for IDP lineups, considering Joseph has yet to put in a full practice since suffering the injury. DE Everson Griffen (shoulder) is also questionable after returning to a limited practice Friday. According to the St. Paul Pioneer Press, he said Thursday that he expects to play. "No setback," he said. "It's just not where I want it to be yet."
The Vikings started their practice week Monday without S Harrison Smith (hamstring), DT Linval Joseph (foot) and OLB Anthony Barr (groin), according to the St. Paul Pioneer Press. Starting S Andrew Sendejo (knee) also did "very little" during the open portion, while backup safeties Antone Exum (undisclosed) and Robert Blanton (knee) missed the workout as well. Joseph and Sendejo missed Sunday's loss to the Seahawks, which Barr and Smith left early with their injuries. None looks like a trustworthy IDP bet for Thursday night's trip to Arizona, and the spate of injuries only makes the Vikings look less attractive as a team defense in a matchup that's already 1 to avoid.
Vikings S Harrison Smith is questionable for Sunday's game with the knee injury that cost him last week's game. He put in limited practices all week and seems on track to play. OLB Anthony Barr (hand, groin) is also questionable. He put in 2 limited practices this week but missed Thursday's workout. We'd bet on him playing but will check on his status Sunday. Minnesota has ruled out DT Linval Joseph and S Andrew Sendejo.
The St. Paul Pioneer Press reports that Vikings DT Linval Joseph is expected to miss Sunday's game because of a foot injury. DT Sharrif Floyd will slide over to Joseph's NT spot, with Tom Johnson entering the lineup in Floyd's place. Missing Joseph -- who has particularly stood out in recent weeks -- certainly hurts the Vikings D. It can only help the fantasy outlook for Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls against an already shaky Minnesota run D.
Vikings DT Linval Joseph missed Wednesday's practice with a foot injury, while S Andrew Sendejo sat with the knee injury that knocked him out of the Week 12 win early. Sendejo's not worth waiting on in your IDP league, but Joseph will carry big upside against the Seahawks if he plays. OLB Anthony Barr (groin) and S Harrison Smith (knee) put in limited practices Wednesday. The Minneapolis Star Tribune reports that Smith sounded optimistic about his chances of returning Sunday. Barr was listed with a new groin injury and the hand issue that has been around for weeks. We'll see about his status, but the fact that he practiced Wednesday points to him likely playing against Seattle.
