Anthony Barr Injury: Barr Being Held Out Of Workouts

Bruce Kluckhohn-USA TODAY Sports

One of the most exciting young defenders for the Minnesota Vikings is being held out of practices leading up to Sunday night's Hall of Fame Game.

Anthony Barr, one of the team's two first-round picks last season, is being held out of workouts with what is, apparently, some sort of a leg injury.

"Our training staff, they're on top of it," Edwards said. "So, we're just going through the process, normal process, to get him back out there as quickly as possible."

Edwards said that head coach Mike Zimmer would have a further update on Barr following this afternoon's session.

Barr started the first 12 games of the 2014 season for the Vikings, racking up 70 tackles and four sacks. He also recovered three fumbles, one of which went for a game-winning score in overtime against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He missed the final four games of the season because of a knee injury, and at this point it isn't know if that's connected to why Barr is being held out now.
