The Packers have ruled S Morgan Burnett out for Sunday's game at Minnesota. Burnett is dealing with a hamstring injury that kept him out of practice all week. S Josh Jones should see full or nearly full playing time in Burnett's absence and present upside.

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.

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.
