Among their many injuries, the Vikings losing linebacker Jordan Hicks prompted them to re-sign Barr.

He hadn’t been on any NFL team’s roster this season after playing the 2022 season in Dallas. He began his career with eight seasons as a Viking after they drafted him ninth overall in the 1st round of the 2014 Draft.

Dobbs has helped the Vikings continue their 5-game win streak coming on in relief of Jaren Hall two weeks ago against Atlanta, then winning his first start as a Viking last week against New Orleans.

The Vikings are in Denver for a primetime game this Sunday night.
