Anthony Barr was having an excellent rookie season before his injury, and in particular showcased his range and developing instincts to help put together a surprisingly good defense. He will finish the season with four sacks, three pass deflections, two forced fumbles, three fumble recoveries, 55 solo tackles, 15 tackle assists and a fumble return touchdown.
