Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Derek Barnett tore his ACL in Sunday’s 38-35 win over Detroit, head coach Nick Sirianni confirmed.  Barnett will undergo surgery to repair the ligament and will not return this season. 

Barnett did not record a stat before exiting Sunday’s game with the injury.

The Eagles re-signed Barnett in the offseason after allowing the former first round draft pick to test free agency.  The three-year deal worth up to $14 million has an opt-out after the 2022-23 season and would only cost the Eagles $5.5 million.  Barnett missed a large portion of the 2018-19 season with a torn pectoral.
