Barnett Done

Barnett Done

According to coach Mike McCarthy, starting linebacker Nick Barnett is out for the season. In his Monday press conference the Packer's stated the bad news.

"We've lost Nick Barnett for the season because of a ligament tear in his knee," said Mike McCarthy. "Got the word about a half-hour ago."  The coach did not say which ligament, though odds are it's the ACL.

Desmond Bishop should start in his place.

I never like to see a guy go down. I hope Nick makes a speedy recovery and comes back at one hundred percent next season.

However, with the total lack of presence by Barnett this season, perhaps the blow won't be as terrible as it seems.

Here is more on McCarthy's quotes on Barnett.

"We've lost Nick Barnett for the season because of a ligament tear in his knee. So, we just got the word here about a half-hour ago. He's very disappointed. It's unfortunate. But we need the other guys to step up. He has a ligament tear."

When asked about who will start?

"Well, that's what we're talking about. We talked about it as a defensive staff this morning, the potentials. Obviously, Desmond Bishop. A.J. Hawk, and Brandon Chillar also factors into that, too, so we'll probably make that call tomorrow."

This is a killer. This is worse than losing Al for the year because we had a good backup there. We don't have much here. Bishop is a good special teamer...this one hurts! GB really got hit with injuries hard this year. It hasn't been this bad in a while. Even the 4-12 year wasn't this bad. Hopefully some LB shakeup will turn them around somehow cuz the LBS be sucking, yo!

ACL is a bad injury-- hard to overcome and usually u see it affect their mobility. I wonder if they'll resign Abdule Hodge.

Maybe this was bad karma for him celebrating like he won the Super Bowl after making routine tackles. Oh well. Bring on Bishop.
