Now, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Barnett is "out for the season." Schefter says that the injury is similar to the one that ended Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher's season in 2009.
The news caps a bad two days for Packers fans. First, they failed to land running back Marshawn Lynch. Then, receiver Randy Moss returned to the Vikings, where he'll team up with Brett Favre. Now, Barnett leaves a gaping hole in the second level of the Green Bay defense.
