Barr sticking with Vikings after all | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

Never mind. NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports that OLB Anthony Barr has decided to re-sign with the Vikings rather than going to the Jets in free agency. That should keep him a limited IDP factor. It's also a reminder that none of these moves will be set until Wednesday afternoon, when free agency actually opens with the new league year.

The Vikings have removed OLB Anthony Barr from the injury report. He missed last week's game with a knee injury, allowing Eric Wilson to take over full-time snaps and deliver a big IDP outing (11 tackles, 2 sacks). But with Barr ready to face the Bears, expect Wilson to return to playing about half the game and not offering much IDP value.

Vikings OLB Anthony Barr is inactive for today's game against the Raiders. Make sure he's not in your IDP lineups. His absence takes a playmaker out of the Minnesota lineup, but the defense remains a strong play against Oakland.

Vikings OLB Anthony Barr came away from Sunday's win over the Packers with a concussion. He'll now need to pass through the league protocol before returning to action.

Vikings OLB Anthony Barr had a cast on his left arm after Sunday's game and had X-rays, according to ESPN's Ben Goessling. HC Mike Zimmer wouldn't give any details on the injury or test results Monday but said Barr "should be fine." We'll keep an eye on his practice status this week.

Vikings OLB Anthony Barr (back) is active for today's game against the Rams. St. Louis has allowed the league's fewest LB points for the season, which hurts Barr's IDP upside. But his ability as a pass-rusher and cover guy helps the big-play potential. And the Rams' recent reliance on Todd Gurley has increased the tackle supply for opposing LBs a bit. Barr's a decent option next to fill-in MLB Audie Cole, who will start for the injured Eric Kendricks.
