Minnesota Vikings linebacker Anthony Barr, who left last Sunday’s game against the Carolina Panthers, is inactive for Sunday’s game against the New York Jets with a knee injury.
Barr, the Vikings’ first pick in May’s draft, didn’t practice all week and was listed as doubtful on Friday. He is the team’s leading tackler with 99 and fourth in sacks with four. He also has 13 quarterback hurries, two forced fumbles and three fumble recoveries.
CB Jabari Price, who was doubtful on Friday with a hamstring injury, is also inactive. Like Barr, he didn’t practice all week.
Also inactive for the Vikings against the Jets are FB Zach Line, LB Brandon Watts, G David Yankey, T J'Marcus Webb and DE Scott Crichton.
DE Justin Trattou, who was promoted to the 53-man roster on Saturday when the Vikings placed RB Jerick McKinnon (low back) on injured reserve, is active over Crichton.
DT Sharrif Floyd, TE Rhett Ellison, TE Chase Ford and TE Kyle Rudolph – all listed on Friday’s injury report as probable – are active.
For the Jets, TE Jace Amaro and DL Muhammed Wilkerson are inactive, along with G Dakota Dozier, OL Wesley Johnson, WR Walter Powell, QB Matt Simms, DB Josh Thomas.
