St. Croix’s Linval Joseph Questionable For Sunday Night Game

Linval Joseph himself


EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. – While nearly all of the Minnesota Vikings were participating in practice on New Year’s Day, there is one large absence.

A very large one.

Defensive tackle Linval Joseph sat out of practice on Friday, making it the third consecutive practice that he has missed.

That’s a fairly bad sign for his availability for Sunday night’s game against the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field, as no Vikings’ player this season has been active for a game after having missed practice all week.

Joseph had missed three consecutive games prior to last week’s 49-17 victory over the New York Giants. He reaggravated the injury on the first drive of the contest, but returned after the injury. He played only 31 of the Vikings’ 61 defensive snaps, largely owing to the score getting pretty one-sided.

Defensive end Everson Griffen and running back Adrian Peterson, both of whom sat out of Thursday’s practice, are practicing today.

Peterson sat out of Wednesday’s practice as well, while Griffen was limited on Wednesday.

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everything from coliform bacteria to Cryptosporidium in locally-bottled St. Croix drinking water, according to a then-unpublished University of the Virgin Islands sampling.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 40 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.
