Burley missed last week's game against the Jets due to his hamstring injury but after practicing in full on Friday, the team cleared him for return prior to Sunday's game against the Cowboys. He's likely the team's last option at corner and shouldn't be expected to see a large role on defense.

Burley left Sunday's game against the Titans with a hamstring injury and has yet to suit up for practice this week. Barring a miracle, the 26-year-old will sit out against the Bengals, but that shouldn't affect Clevenland's defensive game plan, as Burely is nothing more than a depth option.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire
