Linebacker Anthony Barr: ‘You can’t keep me off the field’

Linebacker Anthony Barr returned to practice this week from an undisclosed head injury, saying Tuesday that he’s felt 100 percent for “some time now.”

Although he did not disclose the exact nature of his injury beyond being “dinged up,” it’s something he thinks football players probably go through often — even if it goes unspoken. “Players don’t like to talk about that stuff,” Barr said.

After sustaining the injury last week, the All-American linebacker vomited on the sideline before being led out of the facility. Still, he said he never doubted that his status for Saturday’s season opener against Nevada: “You’re not gonna keep me off the field.”
