Burse (concussion) didn't receive a qualifying offer or minimum tender from the Chargers and has become an unrestricted free agent, per the league's official transaction log.
Burse spent the entire 2017 season on injured reserve due to a preseason concussion and will finish his two-tenure with the Chargers without a single reception to his name despite seeing four targets during the 2016 campaign. However, he was an effective return man on special teams at times and should be able to latch on with a team for training camp this offseason, assuming he's symptom-free and willing to continue his playing career in the aftermath of his season-erasing concussion. There've been no updates on his health since he was first placed on IR.
Burse (concussion) was placed on injured reserve Sunday.
Burse's head injury seems like it could be more serious than we originally thought. He'll need to make a full recovery before returning to action.
Burse (concussion) was waived/injured by the Chargers on Saturday, Ricky Henne of the team's official site reports.
Burse suffered a concussion in the preseason finale and will likely revert to injured reserve if he clears waivers.
Burse (concussion) will not play in Thursday's preseason game against the 49ers, Dan Woike of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
It's a tough blow for Burse, who is fighting for a roster spot as the team's sixth wide receiver and likely returner. He'll have to hope Kenjon Barner struggles in his duties as a return man in order to have a shot at sticking with the Chargers to start the season.
Burse (shoulder) will not return to Saturday's game against the Rams, Dan Woike of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Burse, who injured his shoulder on the opening kickoff, has been playing with a torn labrum in his shoulder, so it's possible that Saturday's injury could be an aggravation of that.
