Linval Joseph, Adam Thielen to have offseason surgery, Zimmer says

By Derek Wetmore

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. — Vikings nose tackle Linval Joseph will require surgery on the toe that kept him off the field for four of the final six weeks of the Vikings’ season, head coach Mike Zimmer said Tuesday.

Defensive end Everson Griffen also might need surgery on his shoulder if he doesn’t go to the Pro Bowl, Zimmer said, although Griffen downplayed that possibility when asked about it Monday. That means Griffen is a Pro Bowl alternate, as he was a year ago.

Also, receiver Adam Thielen will have surgery on his shoulder, Zimmer said. Thielen played through the injury.
