Shark Bites

Panthers DE Brian Burns (knee) is active for today's game against Washington, but Marquis Haynes will start in his place. Limited playing time will obviously lower both the floor and ceiling for Burns. We'd take a shot on Eagles DE Vinny Curry over Burns in IDP lineups. Bills DE Jerry Hughes is another potential alternative.

Panthers DE Brian Burns (shoulder) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Saints. Marquise Haynes started last week when Burns saw his snaps limited by a knee injury. He figures to see full-time duty this week.

Panthers DE Brian Burns entered Sunday's game with a knee injury that kept him out of the starting lineup and limited his role. He came away from it with a shoulder stinger as well. Burns played 41% of the snaps against Washington and still managed a sack and a pass deflection. We'll see about his outlook for Week 17 against New Orleans.

Panthers DE Brian Burns (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game against Washington. That's seems surprisingly optimistic after Burns missed the entire practice week. HC Matt Rhule said early in the week that he didn't like Burns' chances of playing. We wouldn't bet on him being available, but we'll check Burns' status Sunday morning.

Panthers HC Matt Rhule revealed Sunday that DE Brian Burns came away from Saturday's loss at Green Bay with an MCL injury. Burns had an MRI, whose results we haven't yet seen announced. Rhule told the team website that Burns will likely be questionable for the Week 16 visit to Washington, though. We'll see about the edge rusher's status throughout this week.

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.
