The Minnesota Vikings announced Thursday it has placed linebacker Anthony Barr on the reserve/COVID-19 list. This list was created this year by the league specifically to place players who either test positive for COVID-19 or who are quaranteeing after being exposed to someone with the virus. The team did not release if Barr tested positive for the virus.
Barr has appeared in at least 12 games in each of his six NFL seasons, all with the Vikings. He is a four time pro bowl selection and is a key presence on the defense in the locker room.
