Burton caught one pass for six yards during the 2018 season.
Burton appeared in eight games, seeing most of his work as a blocker. He'll enter free agency, but it's unlikely he'll emerge as a strong fantasy contributor, as he's posted just 64 yards over his four seasons in the league.
Burton is a coach's decision inactive Sunday against New England, Kevin Fishbain of The Athletic reports.
Burton has seen just 17 offensive snaps on the season and his absence shouldn't impact the offense much at all. He'll have a chance to suit up in future weeks if injuries open up gameday roster spots.
Burton caught one pass for six yards in Sunday's 24-23 loss to the Packers.
As the team's fullback, Burton played sparingly, but he was targeted in the flat for his six-yard game. It's unlikely that he sees more than a few touches in any given game, especially given the array of offensive weapons the Bears have on offense.
Burton is not expected to play in Saturday's preseason game against the Broncos due to a right leg injury, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Burton likely suffered a minor right-leg injury in practice at some point this week, and the Bears have elected to keep their starting fullback to the sideline Saturday. He'll look to return for Week 3 of the preseason when Chicago hosts the Chiefs next Saturday.
