  • Vikings' Anthony Barr: Gets in limited practice

    Barr (knee) returned to log a limited practice Thursday.

    Barr did not practice Wednesday after making his season debut in Week 5. However, he returned to log a limited session Thursday, which is at least some indication that the team is simply monitoring his workload. Even so, it would be encouraging to see Barr increase to full participation Friday to ensure that he is ready for a Week 6 matchup against Carolina.

  • Vikings' Anthony Barr: Not practicing Wednesday

    Barr (knee) was a non-participant at Wednesday's practice.

    Barr made his season debut Sunday against the Lions after missing the first four games of the year with the knee issue, but it appears he's not fully past the injury. It's possible the 29-year-old is being eased back into practice after playing every defensive snap, but there's now a question regarding his availability for Week 6.

  • Vikings' Anthony Barr: Gets full workload in return

    Barr had four total tackles and played on all 68 of the defense's snaps in Sunday's win over Detroit.

    Barr admitted he was a little rusty in playing his first game since Week 2 of the 2020 season as he made his way back from a knee injury. It looks like he'll return to a full workload, but he wasn't involved in the pass rush, which is key to his fantasy value.

  • Vikings' Anthony Barr: Set to make season debut

    Barr (knee) was not listed on the injury report ahead of Sunday's matchup with the Lions, Courtney Cronin of ESPN.com reports.

    Barr appears on track to make his 2021 season debut against the Lions on Sunday. The 29-year-old played in 14 games last year and recorded 79 tackles, 1.5 sacks, one interception, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery. It's unclear if he will have a snap restriction during his first game action since Week 2 of the 2020 campaign.

  • Vikings' Anthony Barr: Practices fully Wednesday

    Barr (knee) was a full participant at Wednesday's practice.

    Coach Mike Zimmer expressed optimism Tuesday about Barr making his season debut this weekend against the Lions, and that optimism appears to have been well placed given the linebacker had no limitations at Wednesday's practice. Assuming Barr avoids any setbacks over the next couple days, he's poised to retake the field after missing Minnesota's past 18 games.

  • Vikings' Anthony Barr: Trending toward Week 5 debut

    Coach Mike Zimmer expressed optimism Tuesday that Barr (knee) will make his season debut versus the Lions on Sunday, Eric Smith of the Vikings' official site reports.

    Barr has missed the first four games of the season due to a right knee injury suffered in training camp, but Zimmer said, "I think he'll play this week" when asked about Sunday's upcoming divisional tilt. The standout linebacker was listed as questionable for Week 4, and he has now missed 18 straight regular-season games.

  • Vikings' Anthony Barr: Inactive against Browns

    Barr (knee) is inactive for Sunday's game against Cleveland, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

    Barr has missed the first three games of the season and will now miss a fourth. It's a little surprising given he's been practicing on a limited basis.

  • Vikings' Anthony Barr: Viewed as game-time call

    Barr (knee), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game versus the Browns, is considered a game-time decision, Josina Anderson of USA Today reports.

    Barr has missed each of the Vikings' first three games while continuing to recover from the right knee injury he sustained in a training camp workout Aug. 5, but he could be on the cusp of making his 2021 debut after he practiced on a limited basis Wednesday through Friday. The Vikings plan to put Barr through a pregame workout early Sunday before a decision on his status for the Week 4 contest is made, but even if he avoids the inactive list, the outside linebacker isn't a lock to see a full load of snaps.

  • Vikings' Anthony Barr: Questionable against Cleveland

    Barr (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Browns.

    Barr has missed the first three games of the season but is looking to make his season debut after practicing on a limited basis this week. The veteran linebacker's return would be a welcome sight for a Minnesota defense that's allowing 409.7 scrimmage yards per game -- fifth-most in the league. Barr was limited to just two appearances last season but racked up 79 tackles in 14 games the year before.

  • Vikings' Anthony Barr: Practices limited Wednesday

    Barr (knee) was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday.

    Barr has yet to play this season as he's been dealing with a nagging knee injury that's bothered him since the beginning of August. Another limited practice isn't a good sign for the linebacker who is hoping to make his season debut in Week 4 against the Browns. Expect Blake Lynch to see extended snaps at strongside linebacker Sunday if Barr is forced to sit out another game.

  • Vikings' Anthony Barr: Ruled out for Week 3

    Barr (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Seahawks, Courtney Cronin of ESPN.com reports.

    Barr missed the first two games of the campaign due to a right knee injury suffered in training camp, and while he logged two limited practices earlier this week, it wasn't enough to make him available for Sunday's matchup against the Seahawks. His next chance to feature will come in Week 4 at home against the Browns.

  • Vikings' Anthony Barr: Back-to-back limited practices

    Barr (knee) practiced on a limited basis Thursday.

    Barr missed the first two games of the campaign due to a right knee injury suffered in training camp. During a Thursday morning media session, Barr told Courtney Cronin of ESPN.com, "I want to make sure I'm 100 percent. ... I feel like I'm approaching that point." Clearly, Barr still has some limitations, but this week marked the first time he managed back-to-back practices since early August. Friday's injury report may clear up his status for Week 2 versus the Seahawks, but it also could come down to a game-time call ahead of Sunday's 4:25 p.m. kickoff.

  • Vikings' Anthony Barr: Limited Wednesday

    Barr (knee) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Craig Peters of the Vikings' official site reports.

    Barr didn't practice last week before being ruled out against the Cardinals, so it's encouraging to see him now handling at least limited reps. The veteran linebacker will work to ramp up his activity and attain clearance for Sunday's game against Seattle.

  • Vikings' Anthony Barr: Won't play Sunday

    Barr (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game at Arizona, , Courtney Cronin of ESPN.com reports.

    Barr missed the season opener and has been unable to practice this week, so he'll sit out the second straight game to open 2021. Minnesota's depth at linebacker could be severely tested with Eric Kendricks (quadriceps) questionable.

  • Vikings' Anthony Barr: Still not practicing

    Barr (knee) didn't practice Thursday.

    Barr hasn't been able to practice this week after missing the season opener. Even if he's able to return to practice Friday, Barr's a long shot to suit up Sunday in Arizona.

  • Vikings' Anthony Barr: Misses Wednesday's practice

    Barr (knee) did not participate in the Vikings' practice Wednesday.

    Barr has been dealing with a knee injury since the beginning of August and he was forced to miss the Vikings' season opener against the Bengals. After missing Wednesday's practice, it's possible the strongside linebacker may need to miss another game as he continues to recover from his knee injury.
