Barnett's (calf) $10 million salary for the 2021 season became fully guaranteed Wednesday, Eliot Shorr-Parks of Sports Radio 94 WIP Philadelphia reports.
The Eagles exercised the fifth-year option on Barnett's rookie contract last year. Though Barnett's contract is now fully guaranteed after he remained on the roster when the new league year opened Wednesday, the Eagles can still lower his cap hit by trading him or extending him. The 2017 first-round pick battled a calf injury at the end of the 2020 season, but he's expected to be full participant for training camp. If he stays with the Eagles heading into 2021, Barnett should serve as a starting defensive end after he produced 64 tackles and 12 sacks over the past two seasons.
Barnett (calf) has been ruled out for Sunday night's game against Washington after he was unable to practice Friday.
Barnett will miss a second consecutive game to close out the 2020 campaign, providing the 24-year-old out of Tennessee with a stat line of 34 tackles, 5.5 sacks and 16 QB hits during his fourth pro season. While Barnett broke Reggie White's program sack record during his time in Knoxville, the results have largely failed to translate in the NFL. His game-clinching fumble recovery in the fourth quarter of Super Bowl LII will long be remembered by Eagles faithful. However, Barnett's 19.5 total sacks over 48 games represent an underwhelming total for a No. 14 overall draft choice. He's set to return to Philadelphia in 2021 after the team exercised his fifth-year option in April.
Barnett (calf) has been ruled out ahead of Sunday's game against the Cowboys.
Barnett made a sudden appearance on Philadelphia's Friday injury report, and it's been determined that he won't make the Week 16 trip with the team to Arlington. An absence against the Cowboys will mark Barnett's first since Week 1. It's been another solid year of pass-rushing production for Barnett when he's been on the field, as he has already reached five-plus sacks for the third time over four pro campaigns.
Barnett (calf) was added to the injury report Friday and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Dallas, Zach Berman of The Athletic reports.
The Eagles listed Barnett as a limited participant in Friday's practice. With DT Fletcher Cox (neck) also questionable, Cowboys QB Andy Dalton could see a depleted version of the Eagles' pass rush this weekend.
Barnett made three tackles -- two for a loss -- and a sack in Monday's 23-17 loss to the Eagles.
Barnett made two huge plays on back-to-back drives in the first quarter. On the Seahawks' opening series, they made it to the Eagles' two-yard line and went for it on fourth down, sending David Moore on a jet sweep. Barnett busted through the offensive line and stopped Moore for a five-yard loss. On the next drive, the Seahawks opted to go for it on fourth down again, trying to run Russell Wilson up the middle for a first down, but Barnett read the play like a book and stopped the quarterback in his tracks. The game may have gotten out of hand much earlier without Barnett's efforts, although he was relatively quiet for the rest of the game. The 2017 first-round pick now has 26 tackles and 5.5 sacks through 10 games.
Barnett (knee) won't carry an injury designation into Monday's game against the Seahawks.
Barnett upgraded to full participation in Saturday's practice and will avoid missing his first game since Week 1. The 2017 first-round pick is tied for second on the team with 4.5 sacks through nine games. He's in store for a friendly matchup to build on that number, as Russell Wilson has been sacked on 8.4 percent of dropbacks this year (fifth-most in the league).
Barnett (knee) returned to the field Sunday against the Browns, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
Barnett was considered questionable to return with the knee issue, but he was back on the field and blocked a field goal during the second half. The 24-year-old should continue to play a major role in the Eagles' defensive line rotation.
Barnett (knee) is questionable to return to Sunday's matchup against the Browns.
The 2017 first-round draft choice had been enjoying an effective season entering Sunday, with 4.5 sacks on the year and a total of two in his past three appearances. With Barnett out of the rotation for the time being, third-year man Josh Sweat will garner extra snaps at defensive end. Barnett had recorded two tackles prior to his exit Sunday.
Barnett had two tackles (one solo) and a sack during Thursday's 22-21 win over the Giants.
Barnett also had one tackle for a loss and three quarterback hits as he exploited New York's shoddy offensive line. Through six appearances this season, the fourth-year pro now has 3.5 sacks and 16 tackles.
Barnett had four tackles (two solo) and a half-sack during Sunday's 25-20 win at San Francisco.
The 24-year-old was able to add to his sack total during the win while playing a season-high 59 percent of defensive snaps. Barnett has played in three games and has 11 tackles (seven solo) and 2.5 sacks.
Barnett recorded four tackles, all solo, and two sacks across 38 defensive snaps in Sunday's tie with the Bengals.
Barnett only played in 53 percent of the team's defensive snaps Sunday but made sure to make his presence felt, taking down rookie quarterback Joe Burrow twice. The 24-year-old continues to split reps with Josh Sweat, who also notched a sack in Sunday's tie.
Barnett (hamstring) is active for Sunday's game versus the Rams.
Barnett was sidelined for the season opener but will make his season debut Sunday. He gets the start at defensive end as he looks to follow up a 2019 season where he posted career highs in tackles (30) and sacks (6.5).
Barnett (hamstring) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice.
Barnett was unavailable in Week 1 because of this hamstring injury, but, barring a setback, he should be ready to make his season debut Sunday versus the Rams. The fourth-year pro is slated to start on the defensive line and he'll look to top last year's career-high 6.5 sacks.
Barnett (hamstring) is out for the team's Week 1 matchup against Washington.
Barnett was a limited participant in Friday's practice but will not be available for the opening contest of the season. He logged 6.5 sacks across 14 games in 2019 and has proven to be a playmaker when he's on the field. However, he has played in just 20 contests across the last two campaigns and will seemingly have injury concerns once again.
Barnett (hamstring) is questionable for Sunday's divisional contest against Washington.
Barnett managed to log three straight limited practices despite nursing a hamstring injury, which bodes well for his chances of earning clearance for Sunday's game. In the event that Barnett ends up on a snap count or is forced to miss time, however, Josh Sweat and Vinny Curry will be on hand to take extra reps.
Barnett (hamstring) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.
Barnett has been dealing with injury since training camp. It was initially reported that he had suffered an ankle sprain, and he's now nursing a hamstring issue. It's encouraging to note that the starting defensive end was at least a limited participant. He could still have a shot to suit up Sunday versus Washington.
Barnett is dealing with an ankle sprain, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
There aren't any details on how severe Barnett's injury is, but the sources that relayed the news to Rapaport said that he has a realistic shot to be ready for the season opener against Washington on Sept. 13. That doesn't necessarily indicate optimism is in order, especially since Barnett dealt with an ankle injury that forced him to miss two games in December. While Barnett's recovering, Josh Sweat and Vinny Curry will battle for snaps at defensive end with the ones.
Barnett is considered week-to-week with a lower-body injury, Martin Frank of The Delaware News Journal reports.
The 24-year-old is coming off a career season, logging 30 tackles (25 solo) and 6.5 sacks across 14 games during the 2019 campaign. Expect the Eagles to be cautious with one of their top pass rushers in camp as they ramp up for the 2020 regular season.
The Eagles informed Barnett on Monday that they plan to exercise the fifth-year team option on the defensive end's contract, Jimmy Kempski of PhillyVoice.com reports.
The 2021 option is estimated at around $10 million, a hefty price for a defensive end that has missed 12 games over the past two seasons and has only logged 14 sacks since entering the NFL in 2017. The Eagles are evidently hopeful that Barnett can take a step forward in 2020, but if not, the team could cut him next offseason with few financial repercussions, as the fifth-year option is fully guaranteed only for injury.
Barnett recorded 30 tackles (25 solo) and 6.5 sacks across 14 games during the 2019 season.
Barnett returned after playing just six games in 2018 due to a rotator-cuff injury that required season-ending surgery. While the 23-year-old dealt with an ankle issue that kept him out for two games late in the season, it didn't stop him from turning in his best pro campaign to date. The 2017 first-round pick has one year remaining on his rookie deal.
