Barr (hand) is active for Sunday's game against the Packers.
With a varied line in his second campaign -- 47 tackles (39 solo), 1.5 sacks, one interception, and one forced fumbled in nine contests -- Barr will line up at strong-side linebacker in an attempt to corral Aaron Rodgers and company.
Bridgewater completed 25 of 37 passes for 296 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 30-13 loss to the Packers. He was sacked six times, and finished with 43 rushing yards on four carries.
Bridgewater took a number of big hits, and had to leave the game briefly in the first half. While he showed toughness throughout, he couldn't make enough plays in the end. His fantasy production continues to be limited, with just one 300-yard passing game, and one touchdown or less in nine of 10 contests this season. The second-year QB has added some fantasy value as a runner, with a couple of touchdowns on the ground. Next week, he and the Vikings will travel to Atlanta to play the Falcons, who have generally held opposing QBs in check this year.
After putting in limited practices earlier in the week, Griffen put in a full practice on Friday and will be in the lineup at right defensive end. His presence will help the Vikings defensive line as they try to slow down Todd Gurley and the Rams offense.
