Linval Joseph, Adrian Peterson, Everson Griffen Probable vs. Seahawks

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. — Linval Joseph, Adrian Peterson and Everson Griffen fully participated in Minnesota's practice Friday and have been listed as probable for Sunday's game.

Joseph has been dealing with a foot injury that sidelined him multiple games down the stretch, including Dec. 6 when Minnesota hosted Seattle in Week 13. Joseph returned against his former team, the New York Giants, in Week 16 but missed last week's win at Green Bay.

Peterson did not participate in practice Wednesday or Thursday, but said this week that he'd be "ready to roll" for his first postseason game since 2012 when the Vikings (11-5) host the Seahawks (10-6) at noon (CT) Sunday.

Griffen was limited in practice earlier this week because of a shoulder injury. He was unfazed last week at Lambeau Field, recording 2.0 sacks and forcing a fumble that was returned 55 yards for a touchdown by Captain Munnerlyn.

Adam Thielen (shoulder/lower back) fully participated all week and also is probable.

Kenrick Ellis, who helped fill in for Joseph, has been ruled out because of an ankle injury.

As a reminder, it's a virtual certainty that a player listed as probable will suit up and play on Sunday.

As for the Seahawks, TE Luke Willson has been ruled out, along with RB Marshawn Lynch, who was initially listed as questionable but then downgraded late on Friday night due to his on-going recovery from an abdomen injury. WR Tyler Lockett, DE Michael Bennett, T Russell Okung, G J.R. Sweezy, CB Jeremy Lane, DT Jordan Hill and S Kam Chancellor are probable.
