Vikings' Linval Joseph returns to practice for first time since shooting
Joseph was hit by a stray bullet in a Minneapolis nightclub on Saturday, Aug. 9 after the Vikings' preseason game against the Raiders. He was one of nine people shot in the incident and was termed an innocent bystander.
The defensive tackled missed the Vikings' final three preseason games, but was expected to be ready for the team's regular season opener Sunday against the St. Louis Rams. He remains expected to play.
Joseph, 25, signed with Minnesota in March after spending his first four seasons with the New York Giants. He had 59 tackles and three sacks last season with New York.
