The St. Paul Pioneer Press reports that Vikings DT Linval Joseph is expected to miss Sunday's game because of a foot injury.

It can only help the fantasy outlook for Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls against an already shaky Minnesota run D.

Vikings DT Linval Joseph (shoulder) is questionable for Sunday's game at Washington. He returned to a limited practice Friday but missed the week's 1st 2 workouts. We'll check on his status Sunday.
