GREEN BAY, Wis. -- The Green Bay Packers placed Nick Barnett on injured reserve Friday, ending the talented linebacker's season.

Barnett sustained a wrist injury against the Detroit Lions in Week 4 and finished his abbreviated campaign with 24 tackles. The 29-year-old recorded four sacks and 105 tackles in 16 games last year.

To fill Barnett's roster spot, the Packers signed defensive end Michael Montgomery, who played in 56 games for Green Bay from 2005-09.
