Barry picked up his 10th yellow card of the season Wednesday against Chelsea, which would have suspended him for two games, but he picked up another yellow card and the subsequent red card will mean he faces only a single match ban, the Liverpool Echo reports.

Barry will miss Everton's Premier League match against Leicester City on Feb. 22, but he will be eligible to return March 1 against Arsenal. The down side is that he's still on nine yellow cards, which means his next one will result in a two-match ban.

Barry picked up two yellow cards and a subsequent red card in the 1-0 loss to Chelsea Wednesday.

It was very disappointing for Everton and Barry as they conceded the lone goal seconds after the red card. Barry has been very solid for Everton this season as he is the catalyst in the midfield and is currently fourth in the Premier League with 1,523 passes. He'll miss Everton's next match on the 22nd when they host Leicester in a must-win game.

Barry is eligible to play Saturday against Southampton after serving a one-match yellow-card accumulation ban.

Barry should slot right back into his holding midfield role, one that limits him from producing in many fantasy leagues that reward scoring chances.

Barry is suspended for Monday's Premier League match against Queens Park Rangers after picking up his fifth yellow card of the season last Saturday against Manchester City.

Barry's offensive upside is quite limited, though he's somewhat valuable in leagues that reward defensive midfielders. He'll be eligible to return Dec. 20 at Southampton.

Barry (ankle) returned to the pitch against Tottenham on Sunday and played the full 90.

Barry suffered ligament damage in his leg earlier in November but made a surprising comeback Sunday. Regardless of initial reports that he'd potentially be out for another month, consider him healthy moving forward and deploy him in all formats.

Additional scans on Barry's injured ankle revealed no fractures, but he does have ligament damage that could keep him out for months, the club's official website reports.

Barry is still to undergo additional testing, with the club cautiously optimistic that he could return in weeks instead of months. Either way, he will not be playing for the Toffees in the short term, even with the international break to rest.

Everton manager Roberto Martinez tweeted that Barry did not suffer a broken leg as initially feared, but will have ankle damage assessed, reports Sky Sports.

Barry was stretchered off the field in the first half of their draw with Sunderland. Martinez expected the injury to be a broken tibia, however Barry's ankle appears to be the issue.

Barry suffered a gruesome leg injury during Sunday's match against Sunderland and he is having X-rays done at the hospital to help determine the severity of the injury.

While he isn't a huge fantasy contributor, Barry is vital to the Everton midfield and will be a big hole to fill for the Toffees.
