Linval Joseph Doubtful, All Others Probable For Sunday

By Daniel Ricci, for Vikings.com

Eden Prairie, Minn. – With the NFC North division title on the line, the Minnesota Vikings will close the 2015 regular season at Lambeau Field on Sunday Night Football with seven of eight players on the injury report listed as probable participants.

DT Linval Joseph (foot) was the only Viking not listed as probable for Sunday night's game. He did not participate in practice in any day this week and is listed as doubtful for Sunday.

DT Danielle Hunter (knee) was the only player with a probable designation that did not practice on Friday. S Harrison Smith (hamstring), who recently returned from injury in last Sunday night's victory over the New York Giants, was a full participant in practice on Friday after being limited on Wednesday and Thursday. RB Adrian Peterson (ankle/shoulder) and DE Everson Griffen (shoulder) returned to practice on Friday after both missed practice Thursday.

T Riley Reiff (lower leg), who left last Sunday's game and missed the first snap of his NFL career, is another Viking listed as probable after returning to full participation on Thursday and Friday. S Anthony Harris (hip) and WR Adam Thielen (low back) are also both probable after practicing in full participation all week. 

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

Green Bay did not practice on Friday but the team released an injury report in the afternoon.

The report included 16 players and LB Jayrone Elliot and TE Justin Perillo were the only two players ruled out for Sunday.

T David Bakhtiari, DT Mike Daniels, LB Mike Neal, DT B.J. Raji and CB Sam Shields were all listed as questionable for the game. The remaining players on the report were all listed a probable.
