  • Commanders' Cody Barton: Records 121 tackles

    Barton recorded 121 tackles (67 solo) and one interception in 13 games during the 2023 season.

    The 2019 third-round pick played 93.4 percent of Washington's defensive snaps when he was on the field after taking 77.4 percent of the snaps in a 17-game, 136-tackle campaign for Seattle the year prior. From a non-fantasy standpoint, Barton was mostly a special teams guy his first three professional seasons, and there's some chance he lands back in that type of role for 2024 after playing out 2023 on a one-year, $3.5 million contract. The defenses he played for the past two years both ranked near the bottom of the league in numerous statistical categories, with Barton landing 59th and 75th in PFF grade among qualified linebackers.

  • Commanders' Cody Barton: Records six tackles in return

    Barton totaled six tackles (four solo), including one for loss, in a Week 12 loss to Dallas on Thursday.

    Barton was activated off injured reserve Wednesday and played on every one of Washington's defensive snaps in his return to action. The linebacker tied Jamin Davis for the team lead in tackles in the blowout loss. Barton should regain his standing as a solid IDP asset now that's he's back on the field. Over the seven full games in which he's played this season, he's averaging 9.4 stops per contest.

  • Commanders' Cody Barton: Set to be activated off IR

    The Commanders expect to activate Barton (ankle) off injured reserve Wednesday, Ben Standig of The Athletic reports.

    Barton has been out since injuring his ankle during the team's Week 7 loss to the Giants but is now one step closer to making his return. The 27-year-old was listed as a full participant in practice for both Monday's and Tuesday's practices, so he should have an ample opportunity to play in Thursday's matchup against the Cowboys.

  • Commanders' Cody Barton: Headed to IR

    The Commanders placed Barton (ankle) on injured reserve Saturday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    Barton sustained the ankle injury in the Commanders' 14-7 loss to the Giants in Week 7. He has been a crucial piece to their defensive scheme and had registered 60 tackles in the first six weeks of the season. With Barton set to miss at least the next four games, David Mayo will be a candidate for an increased workload in the former's absence. Barton will be eligible to return against the Cowboys on Thanksgiving Day.

  • Commanders' Cody Barton: Won't play vs. Eagles

    Barton (ankle) is listed as out for Sunday's game versus Philadelphia, Zach Selby of the Commanders' official site reports.

    Barton will miss a start for the first time this season as he tends to an ankle injury he sustained in Week 7 at the Giants. In his stead, David Mayo figures to see an expanded role at linebacker in Week 8.

  • Commanders' Cody Barton: Misses practice to start week

    Barton (ankle) did not participate at practice Wednesday.

    Barton was suspected to have sustained a high-ankle sprain during Sunday's game at the Giants, so it comes as no surprise that he wasn't able to suit up for practice Wednesday. Unless he can return to practice in some capacity Thursday or Friday, he'd be a good bet to sit out in Week 8 versus Philadelphia.

  • Commanders' Cody Barton: High-ankle sprain feared

    Coach Ron Rivera said Monday that Barton is believed to have sustained a high-ankle sprain during Sunday's game at the Giants, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.

    Barton is set to undergo an MRI on Monday, but at this point it appears a multi-game absence is likely. As long as he's out, David Mayo is a good bet to see increased playing time at linebacker.

  • Commanders' Cody Barton: Seen in walking boot

    Barton (ankle) was seen in a walking boot following Sunday's 14-7 loss to the Giants, JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington reports.

    Barton recorded just one tackle before sustaining an ankle injury in the first half. The walking boot he was seen in following the game indicates the injury could be an issue going forward. David Mayo would presumably be in line to fill in at middle linebacker if need be.
