Burnett's absence is no surprise after not being able to practice throughout the week due to the groin injury he suffered during the
Burnett left the contest during his only tackle of the night, a combined stop of Matt Asiata with Jake Ryan for a loss of one yard. Otherwise, Burnett had one pass defended on the ledger. The severity of his ailment is unknown but should become more clear in the near future.
Burnett tallied nine tackles (eight solo) and a sack in Sunday's victory over the Jaguars.
The nine tackles topped Burnett's career average of 7.1 tackles per game, and the sack was his first since 2014. He has not played 16 games in a season since 2012 and took part in only 11 contests last year, but his tackle totals make him one of the top fantasy options at his position when he is out there.
Burnett (back) returned to practice in full pads for the first time since the team's first preseason game, Michael Cohen of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Burnett injured his back during the team's first preseason matchup with Cleveland. The Packers began to pay more attention to Burnett's back as the ailment lingered, but with the 27-year-old back in full pads, it appears Green Bay expects Burnett to be ready for Week 1.
