Barnett Out Rest of the Year

Packer's Linebacker Nick Barnett will be out for the rest of the season. Barnett suffered a torn knee ligament (ACL) during Sunday's 28-27 loss against the Minnesota Vikings. Desmond Bishop acted as Barnett's replacement during the rest of Sundays game but the Packers will likely find a different replacement for the remainder of the season such as moving A.J Hawk or Brandon Chillar to the middle position. Prior to this injury the Packer's run defense was already struggling so this is a huge blow.
