Barnett (ankle) was waived by the Eagles on Friday.
Barnett missed the team's previous two games due to personal reasons. All 73 of Barnett's NFL appearances have come with Philadelphia, but Barnett's decline in production, due in part to the pectoral injury he suffered last season, has led to the Eagles parting ways with him. With three seasons of five-plus sacks under his belt, the 27-year-old defensive end will likely draw some interest from other teams around the league.
Barnett has been ruled out for Philadelphia's matchup with the Chiefs on Monday due to personal reasons.
Barnett missed the team's Week 9 win versus Dallas and will now miss his second straight game, this time due to personal reasons. The Eagles will now find themselves short handed at defensive end for Monday's game.

Barnett is returning from an ACL tear suffered in Week 1 of last season. While he was present during June OTAs, he was not a full participant. His presence during team drills now indicates he will be ready when the season kicks off. He is projected to provide depth at defensive end this season.
Barnett (knee) was limited Friday as he works his way back from an ACL injury, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
Barnett suffered a torn ACL last year in Week 1 against the Lions and spent the rest of the 2022 season on injured reserve. He was present in June OTAs as he went through warmups but was not a full participant. Once healthy, Barnett will compete for a depth spot at defensive end behind Josh Sweat and Brandon Graham.
Barnett (knee) was at practice Thursday warming up, Eliot Shorr-Parks of Sports Radio 94 WIP Philadelphia reports.
Barnett suffered a season-ending torn ACL last year during a Week 1 win over the Lions. The 26-year-old is hopeful to be ready by training camp, although it's not clear when he'll be fully cleared to compete. However, his appearance at practice and ability to warm up should be considered progress in his recovery from the injury.
