EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. – After not playing for the last two games, it’s not just Linval Joseph himself who wants him to get back in the lineup – it’s also the wish of the Minnesota Vikings.

The Vikings have not won since Joseph went out with a foot injury after the 20-10 win against the Atlanta Falcons November 29.

But the St. Croix-born nose tackle practiced with the team today – although it was without pads.

Still, team officials said he was able to do individual drills – in an effort to return to the team as quickly as possible.

Minnesota has lost each of its games in weeks 13 and 14 of the NFL season – 38-7 to the Seattle Seahawks and 23-20 to the Arizona Cardinals – with Joseph on the bench.

John McCarthy is primarily known for his investigative reporting on the U.S. Virgin Islands. A series of reports beginning in the 1990's revealed that there was everything from coliform bacteria to Cryptosporidium in locally-bottled St. Croix drinking water, according to a then-unpublished University of the Virgin Islands sampling. Another report, following Hurricane Hugo in 1989, cited a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) confidential overview that said that over 50 percent of the U.S. Virgin Islands public lives below the poverty line. The Virgin Islands Free Press is the only Caribbean news source to regularly incorporate the findings of U.S. Freedom of Information Act requests. John's articles have appeared in the BVI Beacon, St. Croix Avis, San Juan Star and Virgin Islands Daily News. He is the former news director of WSVI-TV Channel 8 on St. Croix.
