Joseph out Week 7 | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

Vikings DT Linval Joseph (ankle, knee, shoulder) is inactive for today's game against the Jets. His absence helps the Jets' rushing outlook. Pro Football Focus grades Joseph among the top one-third of interior defenders in run D. That doesn't propel Isaiah Crowell or Bilal Powell into attractive fantasy territory, but it makes each more palatable if you need 1 of them.

Vikings DT Linval Joseph (shoulder) is active for today's game against Washington. He's a risky IDP play after missing the 1st 2 days of practice this week and putting in only a limited workout Friday. The defense will miss slot CB Captain Munnerlyn (ankle) who's inactive.

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.

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.
