Linval Joseph won’t play for Vikings, Packers’ LT Bakhtiari also inactive

By Andrew Krammer

GREEN BAY, Wis. — Two key members will be missing from the trenches in Sunday night’s NFC North title game between the Vikings and Packers.

Nose tackle Linval Joseph was doubtful, and is inactive with a foot injury. Sharrif Floyd will make his fourth career start at nose tackle, all this season for Joseph, with Tom Johnson starting at defensive tackle.

The Vikings will otherwise be at full strength as left tackle Matt Kalil (lower leg), running back Adrian Peterson (ankle/shoulder), defensive end Everson Griffen (shoulder) and safety Harrison Smith (hamstring) are all active.

Vikings’ inactives: NT Joseph, QB Heinicke, WR Johnson, C Easton, OL Sirles, LB Watts and DE Moore

Receiver Charles Johnson is a healthy scratch.

Packers’ inactives: CB Shields, T Bakhtiari, QB Hundley, CB Gunter, G Walker, TE Perillo and LB Elliott

The Packers will be without two starters in left tackle David Bakhtiari and cornerback Sam Shields.
