Barr recorded a team-high seven tackles (five solo) and two sacks in Sunday's 41-17 win over the Dolphins.
Barr followed up with his first sack of the season in Week 14 with two more against the Dolphins, as the Vikings sacked Ryan Tannehill a whopping nine times. Barr will look to continue his sack streak against the Lions on Sunday.
Barr had seven tackles (five solo) and a sack in Sunday's 21-7 loss against the Seahawks.
The seven tackles tied a season high for Barr as he is on pace for a career-low tackle mark. The 26-year-old has 43 tackles (31 solo) and a forced fumble in 10 games, making him unworthy of serious consideration as a consistent IDP option.
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.
