Barr (hamstring) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice. The full session clears the way for Barr to return from a three-game absence to suit up for a key showdown with the division rival Packers on Sunday. Barr played a season-high 86 snaps in the Vikings' Week 2 tie with Green Bay, tallying five tackles in that contest. The linebacker is still looking for his first sack of the season after failing to take down the quarterback through the first seven weeks.
Barr (hamstring) said he plans to play against the Packers on Sunday, Andrew Krammer of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. Barr's Week 12 status has yet to be officially confirmed, but it's a positive sign that the veteran feels good about his chances to retake the field. The fifth-year pro has missed three consecutive games due to a lingering hamstring injury, and he finally appears to be nearing a full recovery. If Barr is indeed able to suit up for the Week 12 divisional tilt against the Packers, he'll retake his role as Minnesota's starting strong-side linebacker.
Barr (hamstring) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Bears. Barr was initially listed as questionable for Sunday's divisional tilt against Chicago but will ultimately miss his third consecutive game. A timetable for the 26-year-old's recovery remains undisclosed. Expect either Devante Downs or Eric Wilson to slot into the starting lineup as long as Barr remains sidelined.
Barr (hamstring) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Bears. Barr has been dealing with the hamstring injury since Week 7 and the Vikings' bye week apparently didn't provide enough time for a full recovery. The 26-year-old began the week not practicing but was a limited participant as he appears to have a decent chance up suiting up Sunday.
Barr (hamstring) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Lions. Barr sustained the hamstring injury Week 7 against the Jets and will miss his second straight game. Eric Wilson and Devante Downs should see increased defensive snaps, while Barr will now have the benefit of the bye week to help recover for the Week 11 matchup with the Bears.
