Vikings list DT Linval Joseph as doubtful to play Packers

EDEN PRAIRIE — Minnesota Vikings nose tackle Linval Joseph has been listed as doubtful to play at Green Bay due to a foot injury that has hampered him over the last month.

Joseph did not practice at all this week, with the Vikings preparing for what has become the NFC North championship game against the Packers Sunday night. Joseph returned from a three-game absence to face his former team, the New York Giants, last week, but he aggravated the injury and could leave the Vikings again without a key cog in their scheme.

If Joseph doesn’t play, Sharrif Floyd would switch tackle spots and Tom Johnson would move into the lineup. Floyd didn’t practice Friday, either, because of a knee injury, but he was listed as probable to play the Packers.
