Adam Schefter reports that Packers middle linebacker Nick Barnett will miss the rest of the season with a wrist injury reportedly similar to the one that ended Brian Urlacher's campaign last year.
With safety Morgan Burnett having suffered a torn ACL last week, the Packers are now down two defensive starters in a matter of days.
NOTE: Some sources, including Greg Bedard, are suggesting that the injury isn't as severe as Schefter suggests in his story.

Just in case Sunday night did not make it clear, defense rules the NFL in 2016. The best teams in overall DVOA all combine top-five defenses with below-average offenses. The Eagles now lead the league in both defense and special teams and are back to No. 1 overall.
