Vikings LB Anthony Barr Could Return This Week

By Adam Roberts – 10/5/2021

The Vikings could be getting their Pro-Bowl linebacker back this week.

Mike Zimmer told reporters that he believes that Anthony Barr will be ready to go when Minnesota hosts Detroit on Sunday. Barr has missed all of 2021 with a knee injury, and he missed 14 games in 2020 with a torn pectoral muscle.

The Vikings also placed cornerback Cameron Dantzler on the reserve/COVID list. Dantzler is fully vaccinated, so he still has a chance to play against Detroit on Sunday.

Minnesota has started the season 1-3 following their 14-7 loss to Cleveland last weekend.
