Vikings lose another player to torn pectoral

The Minnesota Vikings have lost backup offensive tackle Carter Bykowski for the season after he suffered a torn pectoral muscle.

Bykowski is the fifth Vikings player in the last year to tear a pectoral, joining Phil Loadholt, Brandon Fusco, Brian Robison and Josh Robinson in the unlucky club.

Anthony Barr back

The Vikings are getting some talent back with the return of second year linebacker Anthony Barr for Saturday’s preseason game against the Oakland Raiders. The Vikings top draft pick last year has been dealing with some residual inflammation in his repaired knee, but he will see action against the Raiders.
