Packers' Krys Barnes: Ready for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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: Returns to Saturday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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: Questionable to return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

Barnes injured his thumb during the first quarter of Saturday's game. The 22-year-old will aim to return to his inside linebacker duties.

Packers' Krys Barnes: Stacks up 14 stops
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Packers' Krys Barnes: Practices without limitations
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barnes (eye) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice.

An injury to his eye forced Barnes out of last Saturday's win over the Panthers, but he appears back to full health. The undrafted rookie can be considered fully on track for Sunday's upcoming home game against the Titans.

Packers' Krys Barnes: Appears to be fine
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Matt LaFleur said Sunday that Barnes' vision is back to normal, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

Barnes left Saturday's 24-16 win against the Panthers due to an eye injury. The undrafted rookie was quite impressive before his departure, piling up six tackles and forcing a goal-line fumble. As long as he avoids a setback, Barnes could be in line for a starting role in Week 16 against the Titans.

Packers' Krys Barnes: Exits with eye injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barnes suffered an eye injury during Saturday's win over the Panthers.

The 22-year-old was extremely active before the injury, racking up six tackles while also forcing a critical fumble in a goal-line stand. Barnes should continue to see regular defensive snaps down the stretch, assuming the eye issue doesn't cause him to miss any time.

Packers' Krys Barnes: Cleared to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barnes (calf) is active for Sunday's game versus Philadelphia, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.

The 22-year-old was out the last three games after testing positive for COVID-19, and he'll return to the field Sunday despite being questionable with the calf injury. Barnes seems likely to work in a secondary role with Christian Kirksey and Kamal Martin healthy, though Martin played only nine defensive snaps last week.

Packers' Krys Barnes: Deemed questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barnes (calf) is questionable for Sunday's game versus the Eagles, Wes Hodkiewicz of the Packers' official site reports.

Barnes missed the last three games after testing positive for COVID-19. He was activated from the reserve list Wednesday and was limited in practice all week due to a calf injury. He's trending toward a game-time decision. If he's able to return, it's unclear what kind of role he will have since Christian Kirksey is also healthy and has started three consecutive games.

Packers' Krys Barnes: Dealing with calf issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barnes (calf) was a limited participant during Wednesday's practice.

Despite being activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday, Barnes was unable to log a full practice. The rookie has had a strong inaugural campaign in the NFL to this point, racking up 50 tackles (27 solo) and a sack across eight games. The UCLA product has yet to play in game action since Week 9 against the 49ers, so the team could be cautious with the linebacker leading into Week 13 against Philadelphia.

Packers' Krys Barnes: Comes off COVID-19 list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Packers activated Barnes (illness) from the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Barnes tested positive for COVID-19 early November, but he's now been cleared to rejoin his teammates. The 22-year-old appeared to be garnering a larger role on defense prior to being forced out of the lineup after Week 9.

Packers' Krys Barnes: Tests positive for coronavirus
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barnes (calf) tested positive for COVID-19 on Friday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

The 22-year-old exited Thursday's win over the 49ers with a calf injury and will now move to the reserve/COVID-19 list due to the positive result. Barnes is currently asymptomatic but must be away from the team until further notice.

Packers' Krys Barnes: Won't return Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barnes (calf) is ruled out to return to Thursday's game against the 49ers.

Barnes, who dealt with shoulder and biceps issues leading up to Thursday's contest, has now been ruled out due to a new calf injury. His absence should provide Oren Burks with increased defensive snaps.

Packers' Krys Barnes: Leaves game Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barnes (calf) is questionable to return to Thursday's game against the 49ers.

Barnes came into the game managing shoulder and biceps injuries during the week, but he appears to be dealing with a new issue. Barnes was forced to leave the game in the second quarter, and as long as he's out, look for Oren Burks to see an uptick in snaps at inside linebacker.

Packers' Krys Barnes: Ready for TNF
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barnes (shoulder/biceps) doesn't carry an injury designation heading into Thursday's game against the 49ers.

Barnes logged a trio of limited practice days leading up to the game after playing a season-high 94 defensive snaps in last week's loss to Minnesota. The fact that Barnes is fully healthy is a positive sign for the defense, as he'll assume his usual starting role at inside linebacker for Thursday's game.

Packers' Krys Barnes: Limited during Tuesday's session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barnes (shoulder/biceps) was a limited participant in Tuesday's walk-through practice, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

Barnes was limited for a second straight day, the same course he followed last week before playing a season-high 94 percent of the defensive snaps. The undrafted rookie should be ready for Thursday's game against the banged-up 49ers, and he could be busy, especially if the 49ers opt to utilize a run-heavy approach with Jimmy Garoppolo and George Kittle out of the lineup.

Packers' Krys Barnes: Off injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barnes (shoulder/biceps) doesn't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Vikings, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Barnes is among a handful of Packers who got removed from the injury report despite never upgrading above limited practice participation throughout the week. The rookie linebacker has gotten his career off to an impressive start with 43 tackles and a sack through six games.

October 28, 2020 06:20 PM
Packers' Krys Barnes: Held back in practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barnes (shoulder/biceps) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.

Barnes started this past Sunday's win over the Texans, but he only played 27 defensive snaps before aggravating his shoulder injury and being forced to sit out for the rest of the game. The undrafted rookie out of UCLA still managed eight tackles and his first career sack before his departure. It's a positive sign that he's on the field to start the practice week, although the limited designation could signal that he's avoiding contact. If he's unable to play this Sunday against the Vikings, Kamal Martin (knee) likely would start at inside linebacker alongside Ty Summers.

Packers' Krys Barnes: Shoulder issue arises again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barnes (shoulder) is questionable to return to Sunday's matchup against the Texans.

Barnes was all over the field prior to his exit on the first play of the third quarter, tallying a sack along with a team-high eight tackles. The undrafted rookie from UCLA has been making a profound impact thus far in 2020, as he entered Sunday's contest with eight more tackles than any other Packers defender. Kamal Martin stands behind Barnes on the depth chart, and with Green Bay carrying a multipossession lead, the team may exercise a cautious approach with its starting linebacker.
