Burgess (concussion) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.
Burgess was inactive during the season opener against the Steelers due to a concussion, but appears ready to suit up versus the Saints on Sunday. The 24-year-old will backup Joe Schobert at Cleveland's middle linebacker position.
Burgess (concussion) did not practice Monday, Mary Kay Cabot with Josh Gunter and John Kuntz of Cleveland.com report.
Burgess was not outside for practice Monday as he continues a battle a concussion he suffered in last Thursday's preseason finale. He will need to pass protocol testing before he can return to the field.
Burgess left Thursday's preseason finale after sustaining a concussion, Zac Jackson of The Athletic Cleveland reports.
Burgess totaled 75 tackles (49 solo), four sacks and a forced fumble in his rookie season with the Browns in 2017, and is set to serve as a reserve middle linebacker behind Joe Schobert in 2018. The 24-year-old will have to clear the concussion protocol before fully returning to practice.
Burgess had nine tackles (seven solo) and a sack in Sunday's loss to the Bears.
The nine tackles ties the second-best tackle total of Burgess' career, and he also totaled three tackles for a loss in the contest. The 23-year-old has put together a solid season, but his IDP value is a bit limited by fellow linebackers Joe Schobert and Christian Kirksey, who are tied for second in the NFL with 132 total tackles apiece.
Burgess made nine tackles (five solo) in Sunday's overtime loss to the Packers.
Burgess played 71 of 76 defensive snaps Sunday, tying his season-high and allowing him to post the second-best tackle total of his career. He'll have a tough Week 15 matchup against the Ravens and RB Alex Collins, who has been tough to tackle of late.
