Vikings' rebuilt defense dealt another blow with Barr on IR

EAGAN, Minn. (AP) Off to an 0-2 start while trying to acclimate several new pieces into Mike Zimmer's defense, the Minnesota Vikings suffered another big blow on Monday.

Four-time Pro Bowl linebacker Anthony Barr will miss the remainder of the season because of a torn pectoral muscle sustained in Minnesota's 28-11 loss at Indianapolis a day earlier. Barr was placed on injured reserve on Monday.

"Anthony was our first draft pick that we've had when we came here," Zimmer said. "A big, integral part of the defense. Good leader, great guy. It's tearing him up inside that he's not going to be able to play but ... we've got to move on."
