Barr, Floyd, Blanton, Johnson ruled out for Vikings-Lions game


The Vikings will be down four starters against the Detroit Lions on Sunday.

Chris Tomasson of the Pioneer Press tweeted Friday that outside linebacker Anthony Barr, safety Robert Blanton, defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd and left guard Charlie Johnson all are listed as "out" on the Vikings' final injury report.

Barr and Floyd are battling knee injuries while Blanton (ankle and knee) and Johnson (ankle) were injured in last week's overtime victory against the New York Jets, the Star Tribune reports.

Also on the injury report is wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson with a hamstring injury. He's listed "questionable."

The Vikings and Lions kick off in Detroit Sunday at 3:25 p.m.
