Minnesota Vikings NT Linval Joseph, CB Captain Munnerlyn return to practice

Linval Joseph was back at practice for the Minnesota Vikings, giving the indication he will play Sunday against Washington.

A shoulder injury kept nose tackle Linval Joseph from practicing on Wednesday and Thursday, but the big run stuffer returned to practice on a limited basis on Friday for the Minnesota Vikings and is officially listed as questionable.

“I’m ready to go, man,” Joseph said. “I can’t wait for Sunday.

“I can’t tell you when it happened. It’s just, it is what it is. It’s better now.”

That is good news for the defensive line, which has been without their other starting defensive tackle, Sharrif Floyd, since the season opener. Joseph is third on the team with 49 tackles, third with six tackles-for-loss, tied for fourth with three sacks and fourth with 18 quarterback hurries.

The odds don’t seem as great for CB Captain Munnerlyn, who was also listed as questionable and was limited on Friday. He had his ankle heavily taped and appeared to have a sleeve on his knee, as well. The ankle is his only injury listed on the injury report, but when he left the locker room on crutches following Sunday’s game he had a brace on the knee and his ankle wrapped. Like Joseph, Munnerlyn didn’t practice on Wednesday and Thursday.

Punt returner Marcus Sherels wasn’t practicing Friday and has been ruled out against the Washington Redskins, along with Floyd.

Floyd was out at practice on Friday but was limited to running on the side with athletic trainers as he tries to come back from arthroscopic surgery nearly two months ago.

In addition to Munnerlyn and Joseph, WR Laquon Treadwell (hamstring) and OL Zac Kerin (hand) are questionable. Kerin was limited and Treadwell was held out of practice.

The biggest injury news for the Redskins is WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder), who hasn’t practiced all week and is listed as doubtful.
