  • Packers' Krys Barnes: Inks new deal

    Barnes signed a one-year contract with the Packers on Monday, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

    Barnes played in 16 games for the Packers last season, tallying 81 tackles (58 solo), four passes defensed, a sack and two fumble recoveries. The second-year pro has carved out a significant role in the Packers' linebacker group, starting 23 games over the past two seasons.

  • Packers' Krys Barnes: Solid sophomore campaign

    Barnes notched 81 tackles (58 solo), four pass breakups, two fumble recoveries and one sack across 16 games in 2021.

    Barnes had only one more tackle in 2021 than he did as a rookie a season prior, but he took a bigger step forward in coverage. That said, the 23-year-old hasn't yet emerged as a consistent fantasy option. He didn't record a single game with double-digit tackles in 2021.

  • Packers' Krys Barnes: Ties season high with nine stops

    Barnes made a team-leading nine tackles (seven solo) and recovered a fumble in Sunday's 36-28 victory over the Rams.

    Barnes was only on the field for 61 percent of the Packers' defensive snaps in Week 12, but he was out there long enough to record three more tackles than anyone else on the team. Barnes sits third among Packers defenders with 55 total stops, but his 28 tackles over the past four weeks were the most on the team.

    Barnes was all over the field in Week 9, and he finished with three more tackles than he recorded over the previous three weeks. Barnes is taking a back seat to De'Vondre Campbell at the middle linebacker position, but he is starting to see the field more, playing at least 62 percent of the snaps in two straight contests.

    Barnes tallied eight tackles (seven solo) in Sunday's 38-3 loss to the Saints.

  • Packers' Krys Barnes: Ready for Sunday

    Barnes (thumb) does not carry an injury designation for Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the Buccaneers, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

    Barnes suffered a fractured thumb during last weekend's playoff win over the Rams, but it won't impact his availability for Sunday's contest. The rookie starting linebacker is expected to wear a thumb cast through the Super Bowl if Green gets past Tampa Bay on Sunday.

  • Packers' Krys Barnes: Suffers broken thumb

    Barnes suffered a fractured thumb during Saturday's 32-18 playoff win over the Rams, Olivia Reiner of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

    Barnes returned to the NFC divisional round and finished with 10 tackles and a pass breakup, which may have been an interception if he wasn't playing with a club on his hand. The rookie is expected to play the rest of the postseason with a club. His practice reps likely will be limited during the week, but he should be available for the NFC Championship Game on Sunday.

  • Packers' Krys Barnes: Questionable to return

    Barnes (thumb) is questionable to return to Saturday's NFC divisional-round matchup against the Rams, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.

  • Packers' Krys Barnes: Returns to Saturday's game

    Barnes, who was forced out of Saturday's NFC divisional-round matchup against the Rams with a thumb injury, subsequently returned to the game.

    While the extent of Barnes' thumb injury was unclear after he exited the field during the first quarter, the linebacker returned to the game. The undrafted rookie should be on track to continue racking up tackles.

  • Packers' Krys Barnes: Stacks up 14 stops

    Barnes made a career-high 14 tackles (eight solo) in Sunday's victory over the Bears.

    Play was stopped a couple times Sunday as a result of Barnes injuries, but he returned to the game after both instances and finished the day with a big number in the tackle department. Barnes has served as the Packers' primary inside linebacker of late and has more than held his own, so he figures to hang onto the job in the postseason.
