Week 17 Outlook
Mike Garafolo on Twitter is reporting that sources have told him that free agent defensive tackle Linval Joseph has agreed on a two-year deal with the Los Angeles Chargers worth $17M with another $2M in incentives.
With Joseph joining the Chargers defensive line, he will form an unstoppable front line as he will join Joey Bosa and Melvin Ingram. The Chargers' team defense will be very tough to run on and will be a nice sleeper next season if they can remain healthy.
Linval Joseph recorded six tackles (four solo), two tackles for a loss, and a sack in the Vikings’ 21-16 loss to the Packers on Sunday.
Joseph recorded a sack for the second straight outing, bringing his season total to two. He’s also amassed 10 tackles (seven solo) thus far, and he’s an IDP option worth considering, based on the matchup.
Vikings defensive lineman Linval Joseph popped up on Thursday’s injury report with a knee injury. He did not participate in practice.
It’s not clear when he suffered the injury or if he will miss any time beyond Thursday’s session. Friday’s final injury report should provide a better indication of his status for Sunday. Joseph has 52 tackles and one sack in 13 games this season.
Linval Joseph finished Sunday's 30-20 loss to the Saints with six tackles, three being solo tackles.
Joseph got back to his usual self after missing week 7. He is now fourth on the team in tackles with 30 and is a DL1 moving forward.
Linval Joseph will not play in the Minnesota Vikings' Week 7 matchup against the New York Jets.
Joseph drew a questionable tag for the contest, and it's not a surprise that he'll sit this one out. Make sure you have a replacement slotted in before the action starts today.
