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.
Barr (hamstring) is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Saints, Nick Underhill of The New Orleans Advocate reports.
Barr suffered a hamstring injury during Minnesota's win over the Jets in Week 7, and will remain sidelined as he continues to recover. As long as Bar remains sidelined, Eric Wilson and Devante Downs are expected to see an uptick in defensive snaps.
Barr injured his hamstring in the fourth quarter of Sunday's win over the Jets. He hasn't practiced yet this week as his status remains up in the air. Eric Wilson or Devante Downs would figure to see a spot start if Barr is ultimately held out.
Coach Mike Zimmer is "not concerned" about Barr's (hamstring) injury, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Barr exited Sunday's game against the Jets with a hamstring injury and did not return, but it would appear that the fifth-year linebacker is not in danger of missing extended time. It's likely that Barr's participation in practice during the coming week will determine his availability for the Vikings' game against the Saints in Week 8.
Barr is doubtful to return to Sunday's game against the Jets due to a hamstring injury.
Barr exited Sunday's game with a hamstring injury during the final quarter. The severity of Barr's injury remains undisclosed, but expect Kentrell Brothers and Eric Wilson to play increased defensive snaps as long as Barr remains sidelined.
