  • 49ers' Oren Burks: Headed to San Francisco

    Burks agreed to a two-year, $5 million contract with the 49ers on Tuesday, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports. Burks was drafted by the Packers in the third round of the 2018 Draft, but he never garnered a significant defensive role during his time in Green Bay. Last year, he played a career-high 196 snaps and recorded 36 tackles (24 solo) and half a sack over 17 appearances. He'll likely provide depth behind Fred Warner and Dre Greenlaw while also being a top special-teams contributor for the 49ers in 2022.

  • Packers' Oren Burks: Activated ahead of Week 17

  • Packers' Oren Burks: Hits COVID list

    Burks (illness) was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Tuesday, as a result of testing positive for the virus, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Burks' potential absence Sunday against the Vikings would put a dent in the Packers' linebacker depth. Playing a rotational role this season, Burks has 29 tackles (21 solo) on the season.

  • Packers' Oren Burks: Misses practice Sunday

    Burks (undisclosed) watched Sunday's practice from the sidelines, Jim Owczarski of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. Burks exited Saturday's practice early, but there's no indication of what the linebacker is dealing with. Heading into his third season, Burks has a good chance to secure a starting role, but he'll need to get healthy first to hold off promising rookie Kamal Martin and Ty Summers.

  • Packers' Oren Burks: Plays reserve role in 2019

    Burks had 11 tackles (seven solo) in 12 games this season. The 2018 third-round pick missed the first four weeks of the season with a partially torn left pectoral, but he returned for Week 5 and played a minor defensive role the rest of the season. Green Bay's top inside linebackers -- Blake Martinez and B.J. Goodson -- are both poised to hit free agency in March, leaving Burks, Ty Summers and Curtis Bolton (knee) as the remaining players at the position. Burks could enter training camp with a heavily increased role with a strong offseason, but the Packers likely will make outside additions to the position group, whether it be via the draft or free agency.

  • Packers' Oren Burks: Making season debut

    Burks (chest) is active for Sunday's game versus the Cowboys. Burks missed the first four games of the season, but he's ready to make his season debut. The Packers will remain cautious with Burks and will roll out B.J. Goodson to start at inside linebacker alongside Blake Martinez, but Burks will benefit by getting some game-speed reps under his belt.

  • Packers' Oren Burks: Sheds non-contact jersey

    Burks practiced Monday with a protective harness covering his injured pectoral and left shoulder, but he wasn't wearing a non-contact jersey, Jim Owczarski and Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel report. Burks suffered a partially torn pectoral in the Packers' preseason opener on Aug. 8. He didn't make his first tangible progress on Packers injury reports until Sept. 18, showing up on that day's estimate as a limited participant. However, on all official reports in the meantime, Burks received a DNP. The Packers won't reveal his activity level this week until Wednesday, but he appears to be closing in on getting cleared for game action.

  • Packers' Oren Burks: Spotted at practice Monday

    Burks (pectoral) is participating in practice Monday, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports. Burks wasn't able to practice in any capacity last week, so even if he's limited Monday, it'll be a step in the right direction. The second-year pro is vying to make his season debut Week 5 versus the Cowboys. Burks is set for a starting role in Green Bay's linebacker corps when he returns to the lineup.

  • Packers' Oren Burks: Out again Thursday

    Burks (chest) was ruled out for Thursday's game versus the Eagles, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports. Burks was listed as DNP for every practice this week, so it doesn't look like he's making progress. The second-year pro will have additional rest following Thursday's game, as he eyes a return for Week 5's contest versus the Cowboys. For the time being, B.J. Goodson and Ty Summers will rotate in alongside inside linebacker Blake Martinez.

  • Packers' Oren Burks: Not practicing Thursday

    Burks (pectoral) did not practice Thursday. Burks was listed as a limited participant in Wednesday's practice estimate, but he hasn't actually participated in practice over the last two weeks. It doesn't appear as though he's trending towards suiting up Sunday versus the Broncos.

  • Packers' Oren Burks: Will be held out Sunday

    Burks (chest) is listed as out for Sunday's game versus the Vikings, Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports. Burks will miss his second straight game to start the year. He didn't practice all week, so his chances of playing Week 3 versus the Broncos will depend on him getting on the field in some capacity first. For the time being, Ty Summers and B.J. Goodson will work in at inside linebacker.

  • Packers' Oren Burks: Won't play Thursday

    Burks (pectoral) won't play in Thursday's game versus the Bears, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. Burks is still recovering from a partially torn left pectoral and didn't practice all week, so it's no surprise he'll miss the season opener. The injury isn't as bad as initially thought, however, so Burks should be able to return at some point this season. Expect a rotation of rookie Ty Summers and B.J. Goodson to operate at middle linebacker in Burks' absence.

  • Packers' Oren Burks: Not practicing Monday

    Burks (pectoral) was a non-participant at Monday's practice, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports. Burks is recovering from a partially torn left pectoral and seems like a long shot to be available for Thursday's season opener against the Bears. The 24-year-old indicated last week that he hopes to be ready in a couple weeks, which would seem to put him on track to return in Week 2 or 3. Ty Summers and the newly acquired B.J. Goodson would be the candidates to see increased snaps if Burks is ruled out for Thursday.

  • Packers' Oren Burks: Hoping to return in weeks

    Burks has a partially torn left pectoral and hopes to return in a few weeks, Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports. Burks was initially feared to be facing an extended absence, but it now looks as through he'll be able to avoid injured reserve altogether. The 24-year-old will sport a harness this season and could be available once his shoulder is in good enough shape to handle the impact from hits.

  • Packers' Oren Burks: Day-to-day with injury

    Burks (pectoral) will not need surgery and is considered day-to-day, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. Burks and the Packers originally feared the worst with his injured pectoral muscle, but now that a specialist determined that it would heal on its own, he may not be out for the year after all. Burks will be day-to-day until Green Bay can provide more clarity on his recovery timetable.

  • Packers' Oren Burks: Pectoral tear feared

    Burks may have suffered a torn pectoral during Thursday's preseason win against the Texans, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports. We'll await word on an official diagnosis and plan of action, but Burks seems destined to miss regular-season games, as he did to begin his rookie campaign in 2018. When healthy and available, Burks will slot in as the starting inside linebacker next to Blake Martinez, so any absence would leave an opening in the No. 1 defense. The next players up are 2018 undrafted free agent James Crawford or 2017 second-rounder Josh Jones, the latter of whom has played ILB in the past.

  • Packers' Oren Burks: Primed for increased role

    General manager Brian Gutekunst said Tuesday that he expects Burks to make "a big jump" in 2019, Pete Dougherty of Packers News reports. Burks appeared to be in line for a key role after being drafted by Green Bay in the third round of the 2018 NFL Draft, even though he ultimately failed to carve out a starting role behind Antonio Morrison and Blake Martinez. Gutekunst downplayed Burks' struggles as "typical rookie stuff, growing within the defense, understanding it from an instinctual standpoint," and said that "it takes time in the NFL to really feel comfortable within the defense." With Morrison having been waived prior to the start of free agency, Burks is set for a sharp increase in workload after only playing 122 defensive snaps during his rookie season.

  • Packers' Oren Burks: Will be eased into action

    Burks will play in Sunday's game against the Redskins but will primarily be used on special teams, Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports. The rookie was cleared for full practice this week after Burks missed the first two games of the season with a shoulder injury. However, it appears the Packers aren't willing to throw Burks back into full action immediately, which is somewhat surprising given that he is listed as a starter on the team's depth chart. Nevertheless, expect Burks to have a chance to make a significant impact on defense once Week 4 rolls around.

  • Packers' Oren Burks: Limited in practice Wednesday

    Burks (shoulder) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice. Burks dislocated his left shoulder prior to Green Bay's third preseason game but said he's ready to practice in full and could return as a nickle linebacker, Tom Silverstein and Jim Owczarski of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel report. The 2018 third-rounder served as the Packers' starting inside linebacker prior to his injury, but the addition of veteran Antonio Morrison could seemingly cause Burks to be moved to the nickle linebacker role. Burks has reportedly digested the playbook well enough to facilitate the move, which is a good sign for the rookie's versatility.

  • Packers' Oren Burks: Long-term absence not expected

    Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said Sunday that the left shoulder injury Burks suffered prior to Friday's 13-6 preseason loss to the Raiders isn't expected to be "a long-term deal," Mike Spofford of the team's official site reports. Burks said he felt the shoulder pop out during a blocking drill in pregame workouts, but an evaluation of the MRI he underwent after suffering the injury was, "better than anticipated." Even so, McCarthy was unwilling to offer a timetable for the rookie's return, suggesting Burks' status for the Sept. 9 opener against the Bears could be in some peril. Perhaps as a response to their dwindling depth at middle linebacker, the Packers swung a deal to bring in Antonio Morrison from the Colts. Morrison could challenge for a starting role on the inside next to Blake Martinez if Burks isn't ready for the start of the campaign.
