Nose tackle Linval Joseph missed his second straight practice after injuring his shoulder in the loss to the Lions. But he expects to participate tomorrow.
“I think I’ll be able to do a lot more [tomorrow],” said Joseph, a key starter.
If Joseph can’t bounce back in time to play Sunday against the Redskins, the Vikings would be left with only two healthy defensive tackles, Tom Johnson and Shamar Stephen, on their active roster. They have two more tackles, Toby Johnson and Sterling Bailey, on their practice squad.
Cornerbacks Captain Munnerlyn and Marcus Sherels, who are both dealing with ankle injuries, also missed practice for a second consecutive day.
Wide receiver Laquon Treadwell was added to the injury report after apparently injuring his hamstring in practice. But he showed no signs of an injury as he walked around the locker room after today’s practice.
