Shark Bites

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.

Recent Shark Bites

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 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.
