Packers' Oren Burks: Sports questionable designation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burks (shoulder) was limited during Friday's practice and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bears, Michael Cohen of The Athletic reports.

This news is much more favorable than the report from a week ago saying he's unlikely to play. If the rookie third-round pick can go, he's slated to start at inside linebacker. The Packers may limit his snap count with veteran Antonio Morrison rotating in as well.

Packers' Oren Burks: Likely to miss season opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burks (shoulder) will likely be unavailable for the season opener Sept. 9 against the Bears, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Burks could reportedly miss a couple games beyond Week 1 as well, but the bright side of the situation is that the linebacker seemingly avoided a long-term absence. Until Burks is back in order, Antonio Morrison and Greer Martin are the top candidates to fill in at inside linebacker alongside Blake Martinez.

Packers' Oren Burks: Long-term absence not expected
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said Sunday that the left shoulder injury Burks suffered prior to Friday's 13-6 preseason loss to the Raiders isn't expected to be "a long-term deal," Mike Spofford of the team's official site reports.

Burks said he felt the shoulder pop out during a blocking drill in pregame workouts, but an evaluation of the MRI he underwent after suffering the injury was "better than anticipated." Even so, McCarthy was unwilling to offer a timetable for the rookie's return, suggesting Burks' status for the Sept. 9 opener against the Bears could be in some peril. Perhaps as a response to their dwindling depth at middle linebacker, the Packers swung a deal to bring in Antonio Morrison from the Colts. Morrison could challenge for a starting role on the inside next to Blake Martinez is Burks isn't ready for the start of the campaign.

Packers' Oren Burks: Suffers injury in warmups
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burks won't play in Friday's preseason game against the Raiders after injuring his shoulder in warmups, Chris Roth of WBAY-TV 2 reports.

It's a frightening injury for the Packers, who already lost Jake Ryan for the season to a torn ACL. Burks was expected to take the reins at starting inside linebacker, but a serious injury would derail those plans and force the Packers to reach further down their depth chart. Ahmad Thomas will likely start Friday in Burks' place.

Packers' Oren Burks: Slated for major role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burks is expected to receive a major opportunity at inside linebacker following the news that teammate Jake Ryan has a torn ACL, Michael Cohen of The Athletic Wisconsin reports.

Selected in the third round of the 2018 NFL Draft, it appears Burks will be given a trial by fire at inside linebacker as a rookie. Fortunately, he will have a steady presence in Blake Martinez working alongside him and will get a full training camp and preseason of first-team reps before he takes meaningful snaps.
