Week 8 Outlook
Minnesota Vikings LB Anthony Barr will miss the remainder of the season with a torn pectoral muscle.
Barr recently signed a big contract extension to remain a Viking for the foreseeable future. He is an extremely versatile player and this is a huge blow to a defense that appears to be struggling at the start of the season.
Anthony Barr (shoulder) is doubtful to return to Minnesota's Week 2 game against the Indianapolis Colts.
It's a brutal loss as the Vikings' defense is already suffering enough. Check back for updates later in the day.
LB Anthony Barr has been activated from the Vikings' reserve/COVID-19 list.
