The Green Bay Packers activated linebacker Krys Barnes from injured reserve on Saturday.

Barnes, 24, landed on IR on Sept. 13 after being carted off the field with a high ankle sprain in the season-opening loss at Minnesota.

Barnes has posted 161 tackles, two sacks, four passes defensed and two fumble recoveries in 30 games (23 starts) since signing with Green Bay as an undrafted free agent in 2020.

The Packers (3-5) bring a four-game losing streak into Sunday’s game against the host Detroit Lions (1-6).
