Lamur (foot) is officially active for Sunday's game against the Bengals.

EDGE Analysis

Lamur was a limited participant Thursday and Friday but will play through the injury, and will continue the streak of not missing a game since 2014. The 28-year-old should maintain his usual role as a special teams contributor.

Lamur (foot) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bengals.

EDGE Analysis

Lamur hasn't missed a game since the 2014 season, but he left the stadium in Week 14 wearing a walking boot. However, he was able to practice in a limited fashion Thursday and Friday, boding well for his return. Regardless, Lamur rarely plays on defense, so his absence wouldn't affect fantasy owners in the midst of playoffs.

Lamur (foot) was wearing a walking boot following Sunday's loss to the Panthers, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

EDGE Analysis

Lamur was also seen using crutches post-game, but there is no other indication as to the severity of the injury at this point. The 28-year-old's status for Week 15 is likely to be unclear until Wednesday when the Vikings resume practice.

Lamur is out for the rest of Sunday's game against the Panthers with a foot injury, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

EDGE Analysis

Lamur's main contributions are on special teams, as he has just 12 tackles (eight solo) and one fumble recovery through 12 games. He'll have one week to get healthy and avoid missing his first game since the 2014 campaign.

Lamur (concussion) is not listed on the Vikings' injury report Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Lamur exited the Vikings third preseason game with concussion-like symptoms and did not play in the preseason finale against the 49ers. The 28-year-old will most likely be a depth linebacker for Mike Zimmer and the Vikings this season.

Lamur did not return to Sunday's preseason game after exiting for a concussion evaluation.

EDGE Analysis

Based on the fact that he was downgraded to out, it's reasonable to speculate that Lamur did suffer a concussion. The team likely won't confirm for a little while, but he'll have to go through the league's concussion protocol before he can return to the field which can often take weeks to clear through. Lamur is expected to function as a depth linebacker this season for the Vikings. It's unlikely that this injury will cost him a roster spot, but stranger things have happened.

Lamur worked with the first-team defense at weak-side linebacker in Saturday's training camp practice, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Lamur will compete with Edmond Robinson and Ben Gedeon to replace retired Chad Greenway at weak-side linebacker. While Lamur may be the leading candidate for the role, whoever wins may have limited fantasy value since the other two starting linebackers, Anthony Barr and Eric Kendricks, will remain on the field in nickel situations with the weak-side linebacker coming of the field.

Lamur had a tackle while playing six snaps on defense in Sunday's win at Carolina.

EDGE Analysis

The Vikings signed Lamur on Wednesday, the team's official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

After his second NFL season was wiped away by a shoulder injury, Lamur served as a starting outside linebacker in Cincinnati in 2014, racking up 91 tackles (53 solo) and two interceptions in 14 games. However, he was relegated to reserve duty and special teams snaps last year, when he fell back to 40 tackles, one forced fumble, and one fumble recovery. Upon joining the Vikings, he could compete for another top role at OLB with Chad Greenway.
