Anthony Barr: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Barr (knee) will play in Saturday's preseason game against the Raiders, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Barr missed the Vikings' first two preseason games but has been participating in team drills at practice. Coming off a 70-tackle, four-sack showing in a 12-game rookie season, the ninth overall pick from the 2014 NFL Draft should be fine for Week 1.
Barr (knee) did not play in Saturday's preseason win over Tampa Bay, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Barr (knee) participated in team drills Wednesday, Matt Vensel of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Barr made his first practice reps of training camp Tuesday, but working with the defense so quickly points to a lack of discomfort in his left knee, which sustained a meniscus tear at the tail end of last season. The second-year pro will likely take over the starting spot at strongside linebacker in the near future. However, it's unclear if he'll take the field for Saturday's preseason contest versus the Buccaneers.

2015

2014

Barr, the ninth overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft, will start at strong-side linebacker. Barr ran a 4.66 40-yard dash at the combine, which is a strong time for a 6-5, 255 player. He has plenty of on-paper upside to develop, given that he has just two years of defensive experience at UCLA -- he was mostly a failed tight end experiment before that -- and he proved to be a natural edge rusher by piling up 23 sacks and 41 tackles for loss in his first 27 games at the position. Barr will be used as a linebacker in early downs and as a defensive end on passing downs to maximize him as a speed edge rusher. It may take him some time to develop, but he's a rookie IDP to watch for sack potential.
