Lamur exited the Vikings third preseason game with concussion-like symptoms and did not play in the preseason finale against the 49ers. The 28-year-old will most likely be a depth linebacker for Mike Zimmer and the Vikings this season.
Lamur did not return to Sunday's preseason game after exiting for a concussion evaluation.
Based on the fact that he was downgraded to out, it's reasonable to speculate that Lamur did suffer a concussion. The team likely won't confirm for some time, but he'll have to go through the league's mandated protocol before returning to the field, a process that can take weeks. Lamur is expected to function as a depth linebacker this season for the Vikings. It's unlikely that this injury will cost him a roster spot, but stranger things have happened.
Lamur had three total tackles and played 16 snaps on defense in Sunday's loss to Detroit.
Lamur had played just six snaps on defense in eight games before Sunday, but saw action with Eric Kendricks out with a concussion.
Lamur had a tackle while playing six snaps on defense in Sunday's win at Carolina.
Lamur has two tackles this season as he's getting almost all his playing time on special teams. He'll have a depth role at linebacker.
