    Vikings DT Linval Joseph shot at downtown Minneapolis bar

    Linval Joseph - DL - Vikings
    Aug 9 - 12:59 PM

    Vikings DT Linval Joseph was shot in the calf during a shooting at a downtown Minneapolis bar Friday night.

    In a statement, the Vikings said Joseph was "an innocent bystander" to the shooting. Joseph's injury was reportedly minor, and he has already been released from the hospital. It is unclear how long Joseph will be sidelined.

    Vikings defensive tackle Linval Joseph shot after game

    The key to the preseason for NFL teams is to escape uninjured.

    That applies to the post-game as well.

    The Vikings announced that defensive tackle Linval Joseph was shot in the leg last night at a nightclub after the game.

    “Following last night’s preseason game, Minnesota Vikings defensive tackle Linval Joseph was an innocent bystander to the shooting that took place at the 400 SoundBar in downtown Minneapolis,” the statement read. “Linval suffered a minor injury during the shooting when a stray bullet struck his calf. He was immediately taken to the hospital where he was treated for his injury and released. He is expected to return to his coaches and teammates this week.

    “The entire Vikings organization is extremely thankful that Linval was not seriously hurt, and our thoughts are with all of the victims of this shooting. The team will defer any further comment to the Minneapolis Police Department during its ongoing investigation.”

    Whether he’s able to come back and play is secondary at the moment, as he’s fortunate to have suffered only minor injuries.

    I wanted to blame it on Raider fans even though he was a bystander.....but unlikely.

    VERY glad he is ok
