The Green Bay Packers have been dealing with some major injuries all season long. One of the positions in which they have suffered numerous injuries has been linebacker. Krys Barnes has been held to just three games this season due to a myriad of injuries. He got hurt in the Packers Week One loss to the Vikings. Barnes was diagnosed with a high-ankle sprain and missed seven games. He did not return until Week Nine, when he suffered a concussion. After missing Week Ten, Barnes returned for the Packers loss to the Tennessee Titans. Unfortunately, he hurt his hand in that game and has been limited in practice.

It Is Unknown if De’Vondre Campbell Will Play on Sunday
It is a good thing that the Packers will have Krys Barnes back in what could be their biggest game of the year. In essence, the Packers need to beat the 9-1 Philadelphia Eagles if they are to keep any hope of making the playoffs alive. Barnes is a solid linebacker. If De’Vondre Campbell cannot play, Barnes will most likely start in his place. Campbell has not played since Week Eight due to a knee injury.
