Defense Coordinator Barry won’t join the Packers in Arizona

Green Bay, Wisconsin (AP) – Green Bay Packers Defense Coordinator Joe Barry will not be attending the team’s Thursday night game in Arizona due to COVID-19 protocols.

The Packers have been preparing for such a possibility ever since Barry tested positive. They made it official on Wednesday and announced that Barry’s responsibilities will be split between defensive coach Jerry Gray and domestic midfielder coach Kirk Olivadotti.

Gray said Barry continued to participate virtually in meetings this week.

“He understands what we’re trying to do,” Gray said Wednesday. “It doesn’t look like he’s going away. Again, the best thing in 2020 is Zoom. It kind of helps us stay in the meetings, it helps Joe to stay coordinated with what’s going on. “

Barry’s absence only exacerbates the challenge the Packers (6-1) face as they put their six-game winning streak at stake against the undefeated Cardinals (7-0). Earlier this week, Green Bay placed 2020 All-Pro receiver Davante Adams and colleague Allen Lazard on the COVID-19 standby / list.

Arizona, the NFL’s only undefeated team, averaged 32.1 points per game and is ranked fourth in the league.
