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.
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.
Steelers S Morgan Burnett is inactive for tonight’s game because of a groin injury.
Multiple outlets report that the Steelers are finalizing a deal with free-agent S Morgan Burnett. An IDP force through much of his Green Bay stint, Burnett heads to a defense that hasn't been overly friendly to safety scoring for a while. Combine that with his injury history -- 14 games lost over the past 5 years -- and he looks like no more than a DB2 for 2018 fantasy football drafts at this early stage. Second-year DB Josh Jones looks like the best current bet to take over Burnett's job with the Packers, though we'll see how the rest of the offseason goes. Jones flashed as a rookie, seeing time in DB and ILB roles.
The Packers have officially ruled S Morgan Burnett (groin) out for Sunday's game against the Ravens. It'll be his 2nd straight game lost to this injury, which came the week he returned from 2 games out for a hamstring injury. Josh Jones should start again in his place.
The Packers have ruled S Morgan Burnett out for Week 10 after the veteran suffered a groin injury in Monday night's win over the Lions. The quick decision -- just a day after their Week 9 game -- doesn't bode well for Burnett's Week 11 outlook. Kentrell Brice should start Sunday against the Bears.
