SALT LAKE CITY – The Washington Commanders placed former Utah Utes linebacker Cody Barton on their injured reserve list ahead of the team’s Week 8 game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Commanders put Cody Barton on IR

On Saturday, October 28, the Commanders announced that Barton was headed to IR.

Earlier in the week, Washington said that the former Ute wouldn’t play in Week 8. On Saturday, the team decided to place him on injured reserve.

Barton suffered a high ankle sprain during Washington’s Week 7 loss to the New York Giants, a game in which the linebacker had one tackle.

With the move to IR, Barton will miss at least the next four games.

This season, Barton has recorded 61 total tackles, 33 solo tackles, and one fumble recovery in seven games.
