EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) - Minnesota Vikings linebacker Anthony Barr has a hamstring injury that has kept him out of practice, jeopardizing his availability for the upcoming game at Pittsburgh in a shortened week.

Barr watched the team’s workout on the field on Thursday, sidelined for a second straight day. The Vikings play the Steelers on Sunday.

Barr played every defensive snap in the season opener against New Orleans on Monday. The fourth-year player has started 20 straight games for the Vikings, who would likely either turn to veteran Emmanuel Lamur or rookie Eric Wilson at the strong side position if Barr can’t play.
