Burgess posted six tackles (four solo) during Sunday's 30-16 loss to the Bengals.
A week after setting a career high with 16 tackles while replacing Jamie Collins (knee), Burgess fell back to earth and played just 70 percent of the team's defensive snaps. He should continue to start going forward with Collins on IR, but the 23-year-old shouldn't be considered a viable IDP option until further notice.
Burgess accumulated a team-best 16 tackles (seven solo) and a sack during Sunday's 19-7 loss to the Jaguars.
Starting in place of Jamie Collins (knee), Burgess had a career day. He was all over the field Sunday, finishing with a career-best 16 tackles and his second sack of the season. If he continues to rack up the tackles at this pace, he could become a sneaky play in IDP leagues.
Burgess (knee) was a full practice participant Friday and will be ready for Sunday's game against the Vikings, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.
Burgess will slot into the lineup after missing two consecutive games. He logged a considerable amount of snaps while Jamie Collins recovered from a concussion, but with the latter healthy again, Burgess likely won't see enough defensive snaps to be fantasy-relevant.
Burgess (knee) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Titans.
Burgess did not practice this week and will miss his second consecutive game since sustaining the injury in Week 5. The Browns' defensive gameplan is likely unaffected by his absence, as the 23-year-old primarily serves as a depth linebacker and special teams contributor.
Burgess (knee) is listed as inactive for Sunday's game against the Texans.
Burgess is coming off of two straight seven-tackle games, but he'll have to miss his first game of the season. His next chance to suit up will be in Week 7 against the Titans, and Deon King will fill in on a Browns' linebacker corps that only has four healthy players now.
