Burns Dealing with Hyperextended Knee

Artie Burns left practice yesterday after suffering a non-contact right knee injury. An MRI revealed that he didn’t suffer any ligament damage which was the major concern.

Burns told reporters prior to today’s practice that he was dealing with a hyperextended knee.

He will attempt to practice today on a limited basis, but he feels like he should be ready to play by Sunday.

Whether or not Burns plays on Sunday will surely reflect his involvement in practice today and tomorrow.

Should Burns not be able to play on Sunday, rookie Cam Sutton would make his second start of the season. Sutton found his way back onto the field after missing most of the season with a hamstring injury. He has played well when he’s been given the opportunity.
