Barr done for season | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

Vikings OLB Anthony Barr will miss the rest of the season after tearing a pectoral muscle in Sunday's loss to the Colts. That should mean full playing time for weak-side starter Eric Wilson going forward. Wilson wound up playing 92% of the snaps vs. Indy, totaling 7 tackles and grabbing an INT. He saw 7 other games of 70% playing time or more over the previous 2 seasons when other LBs went down. Wilson finished all 3 such games last season with 8+ tackles.

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.

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.

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.
