Minnesota Vikings defensive tackle Linval Joseph was shot in the calf by a stray bullet fired in a Minneapolis nightclub Saturday morning.
The Vikings said in a statement that Joseph was an innocent bystander in the incident, which occurred inside 400 Soundbar minutes before closing time. Joseph's injury is minor and he is expected to practice sometime next week. He was treated at a hospital and released Saturday.
The Minneapolis Star Tribune reported that police are looking for a gunman who shot multiple people inside the club.
---Several teams are preparing to approach the San Francisco 49ers about possibly trading for guard Alex Boone, according to ESPN.
Boone has been holding out throughout the offseason for a bigger contract. He and the team are far apart in an extension. It is believed that Boone is prepared to continue his holdout until a new deal is done. He has two years and $4 million left on his contract.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and New York Giants are among the teams in need of a guard. Boone can also play tackle.
---The 49ers signed wide receiver Lance Lewis to a two-year deal and waived/injured wide receiver Chuck Jacobs, the team announced Saturday.
Lewis originally signed with the Washington Redskins as an undrafted free agent out of East Carolina in May 2012. He played three games with the Redskins last season before getting released in December. He spent the rest of the season on the Dallas Cowboys' practice squad.
Jacobs was originally signed as an undrafted free agent by the 49ers in May 2013 and spent the season on the practice squad.

Wilson, a fourth-round draft pick of the Oakland Raiders in 2013, spent most of the season on the practice squad. He was waived late in the season and spent the rest of the year with the Tennessee Titans.
---The San Diego Chargers signed linebacker Victor Aiyewa on Saturday.
Aiyewa had four tackles in five games with the Green Bay Packers last season.
