The Packers announced a couple of roster moves on Tuesday afternoon.

Linebacker Krys Barnes has been placed on injured reserve. Tackle Caleb Jones has been signed to the active roster from the practice squad.

Barnes suffered ankle and calf injuries in the Packers’ season-opening loss to the Vikings and will miss at least four games as a result of the move to injured reserve.

Last Sunday’s game was the 30th Barnes has played for the Packers. He has 161 tackles, two sacks, a forced fumble, and two fumble recoveries since joining the team.

Jones signed with the Packers after going undrafted this year. He was waived during final cuts and re-signed with the Packers after clearing waivers.

  1. I like the kid,… big kid at that. I watched him real close in the preseason. He needs work but he didn’t allow many defenders to get past him. His footwork is a little slow but he’s a huge man and strong as a bull. Extremely Long arms to keep bull rushers off of him.
    He’ll get nothing but better with coaching and practice.

  2. Read the text messages between Favre and the governor’s office, and ask yourself if this guy should be a representative of the NFL.

  3. Put him in the backfield on the one or 2 yard line and he will get it in – or at leat have him in as an extra Olineman and run behind him.

  4. So we’re moving an undrafted offensive tackle too linebacker?? What are we even doing this season. We will be lucky to win 3 games

    No, Numba 1, we’re not moving an OT to LB. We’re simply protecting an actual talent. Have you seen how many O-lineman have been injured around the NFL??? The Packers are 10-11 deep in potential starters. You don’t let viable NFL starters walk away for nothing. A second string LB is not hard to replace, don’t panic. Trust in Gutey!! This team has a talented roster and has won 13 games each of the last 3-years, y’think Gutey and MLF might know what they’re doing??
