Packers' Oren Burks: Leading tackler in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burks finished with a team-high six tackles (four solo) and a tackle for loss in Thursday's 34-17 win over the 49ers.

Green Bay's defense spent most of the game watching the Packers' offense dominate en route to a 34-3 lead before giving up a pair of largely meaningless scores in the final five minutes. Burks played a larger role in Green Bay's depleted linebacking core in this one, bringing his season tackle total up to 14.

Packers' Oren Burks: Practices without limitations
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burks (groin) was a full participant in Thursday's practice.

Burks was limited by his lingering groin injury as recently as Wednesday, but he's now returned to full health. The 2018 third-round pick looks set to handle a starting role at inside linebacker against the Vikings on Sunday.

Packers' Oren Burks: Still dealing with injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burks is dealing with a groin injury and was a limited participant during Wednesday's practice, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.

Burks was dealing with an undisclosed issue that was keeping him out of training camp, but, as evidenced by this news, he had his injury clarified. Burks has a promising chance to start at inside linebacker for the team this campaign when healthy, especially considering both Curtis Bolton (knee) and Kamal Martin (knee) will start the season on injured reserve.

Packers' Oren Burks: Misses practice Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burks (undisclosed) watched Sunday's practice from the sidelines, Jim Owczarski of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Burks exited Saturday's practice early, but there's no indication of what the linebacker is dealing with. Heading into his third season, Burks has a good chance to secure a starting role, but he'll need to get healthy first to hold off promising rookie Kamal Martin and Ty Summers.

Packers' Oren Burks: Plays reserve role in 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burks had 11 tackles (seven solo) in 12 games this season.

The 2018 third-round pick missed the first four weeks of the season with a partially torn left pectoral, but he returned for Week 5 and played a minor defensive role the rest of the season. Green Bay's top inside linebackers -- Blake Martinez and B.J. Goodson -- are both poised to hit free agency in March, leaving Burks, Ty Summers and Curtis Bolton (knee) as the remaining players at the position. Burks could enter training camp with a heavily increased role with a strong offseason, but the Packers likely will make outside additions to the position group, whether it be via the draft or free agency.

Packers' Oren Burks: Making season debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burks (chest) is active for Sunday's game versus the Cowboys.

Burks missed the first four games of the season, but he's ready to make his season debut. The Packers will remain cautious with Burks and will roll out B.J. Goodson to start at inside linebacker alongside Blake Martinez, but Burks will benefit by getting some game-speed reps under his belt.

Packers' Oren Burks: Chance to play Week 5
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burks (chest) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Cowboys, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

Burks is working back from a partially torn pectoral and was a limited practice participant this week, and he'll have a chance to make his season debut Sunday. The 24-year-old is still lined up to work as a starter when healthy, though he'll be sporting a protective harness for his left pectoral/shoulder. Burks has yet to log a full practice, so the team may remain cautious if he does return this week.

Packers' Oren Burks: Works in limited capacity
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burks (pectoral) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.

Burks was spotted wearing a protective harness over his injured pectoral and left shoulder earlier in the week, but he has since ditched his non-contact jersey. Although the second-year pro isn't cleared for full practices yet, he looks to have a shot to play in this Sunday's game versus the Cowboys. First, he'll need to get a full practice or two under his belt.

Packers' Oren Burks: Sheds non-contact jersey
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burks practiced Monday with a protective harness covering his injured pectoral and left shoulder, but he wasn't wearing a non-contact jersey, Jim Owczarski and Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel report.

Burks suffered a partially torn pectoral in the Packers' preseason opener on Aug. 8. He didn't make his first tangible progress on Packers injury reports until Sept. 18, showing up on that day's estimate as a limited participant. However, on all official reports in the meantime, Burks received a DNP. The Packers won't reveal his activity level this week until Wednesday, but he appears to be closing in on getting cleared for game action.

Packers' Oren Burks: Spotted at practice Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burks (pectoral) is participating in practice Monday, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

Burks wasn't able to practice in any capacity last week, so even if he's limited Monday, it'll be a step in the right direction. The second-year pro is vying to make his season debut Week 5 versus the Cowboys. Burks is set for a starting role in Green Bay's linebacker corps when he returns to the lineup.

Packers' Oren Burks: Out again Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burks (chest) was ruled out for Thursday's game versus the Eagles, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

Burks was listed as DNP for every practice this week, so it doesn't look like he's making progress. The second-year pro will have additional rest following Thursday's game, as he eyes a return for Week 5's contest versus the Cowboys. For the time being, B.J. Goodson and Ty Summers will rotate in alongside inside linebacker Blake Martinez.

Packers' Oren Burks: Won't play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burks (pectoral) has been ruled out for Sunday's contest against the Broncos, Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports.

Burks was listed as a limited participant in Wednesday's practice estimation, but then he wasn't able to practice Thursday or Friday. The 24-year-old has yet to see the field since sustaining the injury Aug. 9. While Burks rests Sunday, B.J. Goodson and Ty Summers should continue to share his reps at inside linebacker.

Packers' Oren Burks: Not practicing Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burks (pectoral) did not practice Thursday.

Burks was listed as a limited participant in Wednesday's practice estimate, but he hasn't actually participated in practice over the last two weeks. It doesn't appear as though he's trending towards suiting up Sunday versus the Broncos.

Packers' Oren Burks: Could be making progress
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burks (chest) was listed as a limited participant in Wednesday's practice estimate, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.

Although the Packers didn't hold a practice, they revealed Burks would've participated if they did. Take this with a grain of salt, as Burks hasn't practiced at all over the last two weeks. Burks will need to actually practice before he has a chance to play in a game, but it appears he has a shot to play Sunday versus the Broncos.

Packers' Oren Burks: Will be held out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burks (chest) is listed as out for Sunday's game versus the Vikings, Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports.

Burks will miss his second straight game to start the year. He didn't practice all week, so his chances of playing Week 3 versus the Broncos will depend on him getting on the field in some capacity first. For the time being, Ty Summers and B.J. Goodson will work in at inside linebacker.

Packers' Oren Burks: Not practicing Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burks (chest) did not practice Wednesday, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.

Burks sat out Green Bay's season-opening win over the Bears and has yet to resume practicing. The second-year pro is trending toward remaining sidelined Week 2 versus the Vikings, which would pave the way for Ty Summers and B.J. Goodson to split snaps at middle linebacker for a second straight week.

Packers' Oren Burks: No practice Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burks (pectoral) is not practicing Monday, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.

Monday's injury report isn't official, as the Packers are simply getting a head start on weekly practices following Thursday's season opener. Burks' lack of participation is still worth noting, and his chances of suiting up versus the Vikings on Sunday appear unlikely at best.

Packers' Oren Burks: Won't play Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burks (pectoral) won't play in Thursday's game versus the Bears, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Burks is still recovering from a partially torn left pectoral and didn't practice all week, so it's no surprise he'll miss the season opener. The injury isn't as bad as initially thought, however, so Burks should be able to return at some point this season. Expect a rotation of rookie Ty Summers and B.J. Goodson to operate at middle linebacker in Burks' absence.

Packers' Oren Burks: Not practicing Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burks (pectoral) was a non-participant at Monday's practice, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

Burks is recovering from a partially torn left pectoral and seems like a long shot to be available for Thursday's season opener against the Bears. The 24-year-old indicated last week that he hopes to be ready in a couple weeks, which would seem to put him on track to return in Week 2 or 3. Ty Summers and the newly acquired B.J. Goodson would be the candidates to see increased snaps if Burks is ruled out for Thursday.

Packers' Oren Burks: Hoping to return in weeks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burks has a partially torn left pectoral and hopes to return in a few weeks, Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports.

Burks was initially feared to be facing an extended absence, but it now looks as through he'll be able to avoid injured reserve altogether. The 24-year-old will sport a harness this season and could be available once his shoulder is in good enough shape to handle the impact from hits.
