The Vikings could be without their starting nose tackle Linval Joseph for Sunday night’s regular-season finale at Green Bay.

Joseph was officially ruled doubtful for Sunday after missing a third consecutive practice on Friday at Winter Park. He stretched with the team and then left the field.

Joseph has been battling a toe injury over the past month and missed three straight games against Seattle, Arizona and Chicago before returning last week for the Vikings’ 49-17 victory over the New York Giants. He briefly left the game in the first quarter with the same toe/foot injury, but returned and played 31 of the 61 defensive snaps.

All other players were listed probable for Sunday with the NFC North title on the line.

Despite missing Friday’s practice, defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd (knee) said he would play Sunday and if called upon would fill in at nose tackle for Joseph.

Running back Adrian Peterson (ankle/shoulder) practiced Friday after missing Wednesday and Thursday’s practices. Defensive End Everson Griffen (shoulder) also returned Friday after sitting out Thursday.

Left tackle Matt Kalil (lower leg), linebacker Harrison Smith (hamstring), safety Anthony Harris (hip) and wide receiver Adam Thielen (low back) all were listed as full participants on Friday.
