Burns working through groin issue | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

Panthers DE Brian Burns turned up on Thursday's injury report with a groin issue that limited his participation. HC Matt Rhule said Burns "tweaked" his groin in Wednesday's practice, according to the team website. So the fact that he was practicing at all on Thursday seems like a good sign. Rhule reportedly said he's confident that Burns will play Sunday against the Bucs.
