Vikings get good and bad news on the Wednesday injury report

Minnesota retooled its defense this offseason, but unfortunately, the team has been missing its defensive field general for every game so far.

The Vikings have been without linebacker Anthony Barr for all four games. Barr may not always do things that show up in the stat sheet, but he does command some attention in the pass rush, in addition to guiding the defense.

Minnesota got some good news regarding Barr on the initial injury report of Week 5, though some other key players were missing from practice.

Here is the full list:
