Burgess (hamstring) was waived with an injury settlement by the Browns on Saturday, according to the NFL's official transaction log.
Burgess went unclaimed on waivers and reverted to injured reserve earlier this week after being waived/injured by the Browns. The hamstring injury was previously considered week-to-week, so the 24-year-old can play again this season, courtesy of the injury settlement.
Burgess (hamstring) cleared waivers and has reverted to injured reserve, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM Radio reports.
After going unclaimed through waivers, Burgess could spend the rest of the 2018 campaign on injured reserve, barring an injury settlement. If that's the case, he will be eligible to return for the 2019 campaign.
Burgess (hamstring) was waived/injured by the Browns on Tuesday, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.
Burgess was considered week-to-week with his hamstring injury, so being waived is certainly a surprising outcome. Burgess will revert to the Browns' injured reserve after clearing waivers.
Coach Hue Jackson said Burgess (hamstring) is week-to-week and unlikely to play against the Buccaneers on Sunday, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.
This is poor timing for the Browns' linebacker corps, as Joe Schobert (hamstring) also has a week-to-week designation. If he shakes the injury and Schobert can't, Burgess could be due for a handsome stat line, but it's more likely Genard Avery shifts to middle linebacker for Week 7's game.
Burgess (knee) will return from a two-game absence Sunday against the Chargers.
While Burgess will be active for the first time since Week 3, his ceiling as an IDP is limited with a healthy position group in Cleveland. He remains behind Joe Schobert on the depth chart, and could see much of his work on special teams.
