Vikings Defensive Tackle vows to return quickly from his gun shot wound

Linval Joseph was shot this weekend in a club after their football game.  Joseph was just an innocent bystander but thankfully he was not injured worse than he was.  He was shot in the calf, but is ok, and he vows to come back sooner rather than later. 

“I appreciate everyone’s thoughts and concerns over the past 24 hours,” Joseph said in a statement released by the Vikings.  “I am extremely thankful that this was a minor injury for me.  As the team has communicated, this was an unfortunate situation where I, along with several others, was an innocent bystander to a senseless act.  My thoughts are with all of the victims at this time.  I am looking forward to getting back onto the field with my teammates in the near future.”
