Green Bay Packers safety Morgan Burnett (ankle) has been downgraded to doubtful for Sunday's game against the 49ers.
The downgrade doesn't come as a huge surprise, as Burnett didn't practice all week. He will now likely miss a second straight game with the calf injury, meaning Micah Hyde will probably get another start at strong safety next to Ha Ha Clinton-Dix on Sunday in San Francisco.
Green Bay Packers safety Morgan Burnett (calf) has been deemed questionable for Sunday at San Francisco.
Burnett missed two of the first three games, including the Monday defeat of Kansas City. He didn't practice all week, suggesting that he will be sidelined.
Green Bay Packers safety Morgan Burnett (calf) didn't practice Wednesday, the Green Bay Phoenix Press-Gazette reports.
Burnett has been contained to one appearance this season, and his calf injury continues to nag him. If he practices before week's end, his chances of playing Sunday in San Francisco would rise, but another absence would place Micah Hyde in the starting lineup at strong safety.
Burnett tweaked his calf in Friday's practice, which has led to a second absence in three games to start the season.
Burnett was unable to practice Saturday after being added to the injury report Friday, putting his status for the game in jeopardy.
He also missed Week 1 game against Chicago with a calf injury, so this injury designation is hardly surprising,. But he was supposed to have recovered considering he played every defensive snap against Seattle last week.
