LB Anthony Barr back to bolster Vikings defense

The Vikings have their last home preseason game at TCF Bank Stadium on Saturday night against the Oakland Raiders, and a familiar face will be in town, too. It’s especially interesting when it’s your former quarterback.

The club’s defense is looking forward to greeting Christian Ponder, but the Vikings are still facing the Raiders without Phil Loadholt on offense. Anthony Barr is back from injury on defense, and the rest of the squad hopes he quickly regains the playing form he boasted last season.

Fox 9 Sports’ Dawn Mitchell also spoke with defensive end Everson Griffen and the sacks that could be. Watch the video for more.
