Vikings' Barr Out Sunday, Possibly for the Rest of the Season

For the second straight week, the Minnesota Vikings have ruled rookie linebacker Anthony Barr out of a game due to injury. An injury Barr sustained to his knee in the Vikings' Week 11 loss to the Chicago Bears is what kept him out last week against the New York Jets and what will also keep him sidelined against the Detroit Lions on Sunday. Until his injury, Barr was among the favorites...

Following their 19-13 overtime victory against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the Mike Zimmer and Minnesota Vikings are surely celebrating their first win in the month of October.

Barr finally able to accelerate learning curve with Vikings

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- Almost everywhere linebackers coach Adam Zimmer goes, Anthony Barr isn't too far behind. The Minnesota Vikings' linebacker coach and the first-round pick are nearly inseparable out on the practice field for the team's three-day mandatory minicamp.

Grading Each Vikings Pick From the 2014 NFL Draft Class

Round 1, Pick 9 | Anthony Barr LB, UCLA Analysis: Not going to lie, this pick dropped my jaw a bit. Not because I didn’t like it, just that it was a bit of a shock to the ole system. The name was tossed around early in the draftseason but Barr had little to zero steam to the Vikings leading up to draft day. Some think he was a reach at 9, but his freakish ability wouldn’t have...

How Athletic is Anthony Barr? Sports Science Takes a Look

We’ll do lots to cover this weekend’s draft throughout the next week, but the biggest head scratcher for some people is that the Vikings took UCLA LB Anthony Barr with their first of two first round picks. Some people were telling me they had never even heard of the guy, which leads me to believe they are just stupid and don’t watch college football. Regardless, if you need...
