Despite continued optimism that the Minnesota Vikings would be close to full strength, there wasn’t much change in their injury report on Thursday.
Barr had been listed on the injury report in previous weeks with groin and hand injuries, but that changed to a knee injury this week, although Zimmer indicated it wasn’t a new injury.
“It was a knee-groin,” Zimmer said. “He’s fine. He’ll be alright.”
Smith said he was optimistic he would play, but Zimmer said some of his decisions on who plays and who doesn’t might be based on the Vikings’ playoff standing by the time they take the field Sunday night.
“If the guy is iffy health-wise and we we’re already in the playoffs, then I may sit him for another week,” Zimmer said.
On offense, running back Adrian Peterson (ankle/shoulder) didn’t practice and neither did blocking tight end Rhett Ellison (ankle). Zimmer said before practice that he anticipated Peterson would “get some work in today,” but he didn’t practice.
