Barnett tore his knee; placed on I.R.

During his Monday press conference, McCarthy announced that Nick Barnett will undergo surgery to repair the torn knee ligament he suffered in Green Bay's loss to the Vikings Sunday and will be out for the season.

Barnett currently leads the team in tackles with 63, but that's about all he's done. We know Nick will play next year; he signed a pretty big contract.

The question is; Is this a huge loss?
