  • Cardinals' Krys Barnes: Moves to Arizona

    The Cardinals and Barnes agreed to terms of a one-year contract Saturday, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports.

    After notching at least 80 tackles in both of his first two campaigns as a pro, Barnes managed just six appearances last season due to a variety of injuries, most notably an ankle issue Week 1 that forced a lengthy stay on IR. The Packers didn't extend a qualifying offer or tender to Barnes as a restricted free agent this offseason, so he was free to sign anywhere. Upon joining the Cardinals, he'll serve as depth at inside linebacker behind Zaven Collins (calf), Isaiah Simmons and Kyzir White.

  • Packers' Krys Barnes: Logs limited practice Wednesday

    Barnes (hand) was limited at Green Bay's practice session Wednesday.

    Barnes recorded a team-high 12 tackles in Thursday's loss to the Titans, but he appears to have suffered a hand injury either in that game or in the five days that followed. His ability to take the field Sunday in Philadelphia will be particularly important if De'Vondre Campbell, who missed Wednesday's practice due to a lingering knee injury, is forced to sit out a fourth straight contest.

  • Packers' Krys Barnes: Sheds injury designation

    Barnes (hand) was listed as a full participant in Thursday's practice report, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

    Barnes was a limited participant for Wednesday's practice, but it appears his hand has healed enough that he should be ready to go Sunday against the Eagles. His ability to play will be big for the Packers' defense if De'Vondre Campbell (knee) is out for another game.

  • Packers' Krys Barnes: Game-high 12 stops Thursday

    Barnes recorded 12 tackles (six solo) and one sack during Thursday's 27-17 loss to the Titans.

    With De'Vondre Campbell ruled out for Thursday's game against Tennessee, Barnes filled in at linebacker and led both teams with 12 tackles on the night. The 24-year-old has missed eight games so far in 2022 due to a high-ankle sprain and a concussion, but over his last two contests, he's amassed 20 tackles and one sack on just 67 defensive snaps. While Quay Walker sustained an apparent shoulder injury Thursday and remains questionable heading into the team's Week 12 matchup in Philadelphia, Barnes could potentially see a massive uptick in snaps if either Campbell or Walker are unable to suit up next week.

  • Packers' Krys Barnes: Set to play Thursday

    Barnes (concussion) did not receive an injury designation ahead of Thursday's game against the Titans, Wes Hodkiewicz of the Packers' official site reports.

    Barnes is expected to play again after missing Sunday's win over the Cowboys due to a concussion, which he sustained during Green Bay's Week 9 loss to the Lions. The third-year linebacker has been limited to just 32 defensive snaps over two games due to injuries this season, though he figures to fill an increased role with All-Pro De'Vondre Campbell (knee) ruled out against Tennessee. Barnes played a career-high 507 defensive snaps last year, logging 81 tackles, one sack and four passes defended over 16 regular-season games, and he'll likely slot in alongside Isaiah McDuffie and rookie Quay Walker during Thursday Night Football.

  • Packers' Krys Barnes: Full participant Monday

    Barnes (concussion) was listed as a full participant on the Packers' estimated practice report Monday.

    Barnes sustained a concussion during Green Bay's Week 9 loss to the Lions, and he did not practice before being ruled out ahead of Sunday's 31-28 overtime win against the Cowboys. The Packers did not hold a practice Monday, so it's unclear if he's officially cleared the league's protocol for head injuries. With starting inside linebacker De'Vondre Campbell (knee) also dealing with an injury, it will be worth monitoring Barnes' status heading into Thursday Night Football against Tennessee.

  • Packers' Krys Barnes: Unlikely for Week 10

    Barnes (concussion) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Cowboys, Wes Hodkiewicz of the Packers' official site reports.

    Barnes suffered a concussion late in Green Bay's Week 9 loss to Detroit and has been in the league's protocol since. He failed to practice in any capacity, so he is a long shot to suit up against Dallas. Barnes missed seven consecutive games due to an ankle injury earlier in the season.

  • Packers' Krys Barnes: Suffering from concussion

    Barnes did not practice Wednesday due to a concussion.

    Barnes was shaken up late in a Week 9 loss to Detroit, and he was subsequently diagnosed with a concussion. He led the Packers with eight tackles before getting hurt, helping to make up for the absence of De'Vondre Campbell (knee). Barnes will now need to pass through league protocols before he's able to return, and with Campbell still questionable, the Packers could be quite shorthanded at inside linebacker in Week 10.

  • Packers' Krys Barnes: Leading tackler in loss

    Barnes recorded eight tackles (four solo) during Sunday's 15-9 loss to the Lions.

    Barnes finished with a team high in tackles despite playing just 25 defensive snaps Sunday. The third-year linebacker suffered an ankle injury in Green Bay's season opener and was sidelined on IR until this Week 9 contest. Barnes will have a chance to put up another prolific stat line if starting inside linebacker De'Vondre Campbell (knee) remains sidelined against Dallas this coming Sunday.

  • Packers' Krys Barnes: Activated ahead of Week 9

    Barnes (ankle) was activated from injured reserve Saturday.

    Barnes was designated to return Wednesday and was officially activated after three days of practice heading into a Week 9 matchup against the Lions. He'll suit up for the first time since Week 1, when he played primarily on special teams and did not record a stat.

  • Packers' Krys Barnes: Receives return designation

    Barnes (ankle) was designated to return from injured reserve Wednesday, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.

    Barnes landed on injured reserve after he suffered the ankle sprain during the season opener, and he's now been cleared to return to practice. The Packers now have 21 days to reinstate him to the active roster before he reverts to injured reserve.

  • Packers' Krys Barnes: Goes to IR with ankle injury

    Green Bay placed Barnes (ankle) on its injured reserve list Tuesday.

    Barnes was carted off the field with a high ankle sprain during the Packers' loss at Minnesota on Sunday and will now miss at least the next four games. If 2022 first-rounder Quay Walker is also unavailable for Week 2 versus Chicago, Isaiah McDuffie would probably be in line for snaps at linebacker behind 2021 All-Pro De'Vondre Campbell.

  • Packers' Krys Barnes: Avoids substantial injury

    Packers coach Matt LaFleur said Monday that Barnes (ankle) likely "avoided significant injury," after being carted off with a high ankle sprain during Sunday's season-opening loss to the Vikings, Wes Hodkiewicz of the team's official site reports.

    Barnes will still likely be sidelined for multiple weeks, but LaFleur's comments are an encouraging sign given the initially concerning appearance of this injury. The 24-year-old recorded 161 tackles over 29 regular-season games for Green Bay during the past two years, and he should still slot into a prominent reserve role behind inside linebackers De'Vondre Campbell and Quay Walker (shoulder) when healthy in 2022.

  • Packers' Krys Barnes: Multi-week absence expected

    Barnes is expected to miss at least a few weeks after suffering a high ankle sprain and calf injury in Sunday's loss to the Vikings, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

    Barnes was carted off with his right leg in an aircast against Minnesota. While his injuries are substantial, the Packers' initial hope is that Barnes' absence will be limited to a few weeks. He'll sit out in Week 2 against the Bears and likely a few additional games.
