UNDATED (AP) -- Green Bay starting linebacker Nick Barnett and New Orleans starting cornerback Mike McKenzie are both done for the season.

Packers coach Mike McCarthy says Barnett tore a ligament in his right knee during yesterday's 28-27 loss to the Minnesota Vikings. No timetable for surgery has been announced. McKenzie fractured his right kneecap in a 34-20 loss to Atlanta and Saints coach Sean Payton says the veteran defensive back will
have an operation this week. McKenzie came back this season from a torn ligament in his right knee and had regained his starting job before his latest injury.
