After being a limited participant in practice on Wednesday, Minnesota Vikings linebacker Anthony Barr was the only player to not take part in the team’s practice session on Thursday.

Heading into their regular-season opener against the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday, the majority of the top players on the Minnesota Vikings roster are expected to be out on the field.

Obviously, the Vikings will be without tight end Irv Smith Jr. as he continues to recover from surgery on his meniscus.
