Healthy Vikings list DT Linval Joseph as probable

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) The Minnesota Vikings will be as close to full strength as they've been all season for their playoff game against Seattle.

Nose tackle Linval Joseph, who missed four of the last five games with a toe injury, was a full participant in practice Friday. He was listed as probable to play in the wild-card round matchup Sunday. Running back Adrian Peterson (lower back) was also listed as probable. He has not missed any games this season.

Only one was player was declared out against the Seahawks, backup defensive tackle Kenrick Ellis (ankle).

When the Vikings lost to Seattle on Dec. 6, Joseph was out. Linebacker Anthony Barr and safety Harrison Smith were hurt in the first quarter.
