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.
