Anthony Barr recorded five combined tackles with no sacks or tackles for loss in Sunday's Wild Card matchup against Seattle.
Barr capped off a solid sophomore season with a respectable five combined tackles but he was unable to generate much in the way of a pass rush. In all, there was a slight statistical dropoff from Barr's rookie season when he racked up 70 tackles, four sacks, five run stuffs, and two forced fumbles in just 12 games; he had 68 tackles with 3.5 sacks and four run stuffs in 2015. Still, Barr has exhibited plenty of upside in his first two years in the league and has shown to have a nose for the ball with five forced fumbles. He may not deliver the tackle volume an IDP league owner would want out of a linebacker, but if Barr can become a greater pass rush threat next season he could be a legitimate option in such leagues.
Anthony Barr (knee) is active for Sunday's game against the Giants.
After missing two games with a knee injury, Barr will man his normal spot at strong-side linebacker. On the season, he's notched 61 tackles (51 solo), three forced fumbles, 2.5 sacks, and one interceptions in 12 outings.
Anthony Barr (knee) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Giants.
Barr missed the last two games with his knee injury, but he was able to practice each day this week, and is set to return to action Sunday night. Barr tallied eight tackles, one sack, and two forced fumbles in the last game he finished in Week 12.
Anthony Barr (groin) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice. "This is the best I've felt in a while," he told the Minneapolis Star Tribune.
Barr has missed the last two games due to the injury, but it sounds like there's a good chance he'll return this week.
Anthony Barr (groin) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Bears.
With both Barr and safety Harrison Smith (knee/hamstring) ruled out for another week, the Chicago offense is catching a big break. Edmond Robinson started in Barr's place last week against the Cardinals, but Brandon Watts (probable-ribs) will likely take over in Sunday's matchup with the Bears. Barr did return to a limited practice Friday, suggesting he could be back for Week 16.
