Dallas signed Burton off the Colts' practice squad Wednesday, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports.
Burton will fill Anthony Brown's roster spot with the Cowboys. The 25-year-old cornerback has yet to play a down in 2019, so Burton need not be considered for a fantasy roster spot at this stage of his career.
Burton (undisclosed) did not practice Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Burton was spotted with an ice pack on his leg. The third-year cornerback is competing for a depth role in Houston's secondary, and missing any time due to injury could impact his chances of making the 53-man roster.
Burton signed a contract with Houston on Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Burton's place on the 53-man roster comes following the release of tackle David Sharpe. The second-year cornerback will provide the Texans with secondary depth, and is expected to play most of his snaps on special teams.
Burton was waived by the Packers on Wednesday, according to the team's official site.
Burton was cut in order to make room for running back Aaron Jones, who was activated from exempt status. Burton was claimed off waivers from the Falcons on Sept. 11 and was inactive for Green Bay's Week 2 game against the Vikings.
