Will Morgan Burnett have to miss an entire month of football?
The Packers practiced Thursday morning and afternoon, and once again, Morgan Burnett was one of those who didn't take the field.
ESPN's Rob Demovsky tweeted this during practice:
#Packers S Morgan Burnett (hamstring) may be shut down until after the bye. Wasn't practicing today.— Rob Demovsky (@RobDemovsky) September 19, 2013
After practice, however, Demovsky added that neither he nor running back Eddie Lacy are necessarily out for Sunday's game against the Cincinnati Bengals.
#Packers have not ruled out either Lacy or Burnett. Both were just listed as DNPs.— Rob Demovsky (@RobDemovsky) September 19, 2013
The Packers' bye week comes this weekend.
Other players who didn't participate in practice, according to Demovsky:
#Packers not practicing: CB Jarrett Bush, RB Eddie Lacy, CB Casey Hayward, FB John Kuhn, S Morgan Burnett.— Rob Demovsky (@RobDemovsky) September 19, 2013
