Packers S Morgan Burnett missed a 2nd straight practice Thursday because of a calf injury, and HC Mike McCarthy admitted that he's worried about the starter's availability. "My concern for Morgan is higher than it was yesterday," McCarthy said after Thursday's practice, per ESPN.com. "Hopefully with today and what goes on tomorrow, we'll see if he can do anything Saturday." We'll see what happens with Burnett on Friday and Saturday, but Burnett looks quite risky for IDP owners this week and has tumbled down our Week 8 DB rankings. His absence would only help the upside for rookie S Ha Ha Clinton-Dix.
Browns S Morgan Burnett will miss the rest of the season after tearing his left Achilles' tendon in Thursday night's win over the Steelers. Eric Murray sits behind him on the depth chart but missed Week 11 with his own knee injury. We'll see whether Murray can return for Week 12. We'll also see about the NFL future for the 30-year-old Burnett, who has just 1 cuttable year remaining on his contract. Burnett's not worth holding in dynasty IDP leagues.
Browns S Morgan Burnett left in the 2nd quarter of Thursday night's game against the Steelers with an Achilles' tendon injury and was quickly ruled out. That doesn't seem to bode well for his outlook beyond Week 11. We'll see about the official diagnosis.
The Browns might get S Morgan Burnett back for Monday night's game against the 49ers. Burnett returned to limited practices Thursday and Friday and then a full workout Saturday, coming off 2 games lost to a quad injury. He's officially questionable. If you're looking to use him in your IDP lineup, make sure Jermaine Whitehead is available as a fallback. CBs Greedy Williams and Denzel Ward are also questionable again with hamstring injuries. Neither has returned to practice yet, though, after missing the past 2 contests. Expect both to miss another game.
Steelers S Morgan Burnett (groin) is set to play Sunday against the Browns after sitting out the past 4 games. The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports that rookie Terrell Edmunds will retain his starting job, so we'll see just how big a role Burnett finds.
