The Packers will be without middle linebacker Nick Barnett for the rest of the season. He tore a ligament in his knee during yesterday’s 28-27 loss to the Vikings.

Coach Mike McCarthy confirmed Barnett’s injury during his Monday press conference. Surgery has not yet been scheduled to repair the tear. Barnett leads the team with 49 tackles this season.

Desmond Bishop replaced Barnett after he got hurt in the third quarter, and was partially responsible for a Gus Frerotte to Chester Taylor 47-yard touchdown on his first play. Brandon Chillar is another possible replacement, although he regularly plays outside.
