Time for Concern About Morgan Burnett
Morgan Burnett missed his second straight day of practice with a calf injury on Thursday.
While that alone might be cause for concern, Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy upped the ante when he said he was concerned, during his media session.
“My concern for Morgan is higher than what it was yesterday,” he said.
What exactly that means is anyone’s guess, but we wouldn’t be surprised if the someone trots out the old, “it’s worse than we thought it was,” in the next day or so.
That happened with both receiver Jarrett Boykin and defensive end Datone Jones already this year.
And that’s what they call a segue.
Jones, who has missed the last two games while nursing a sprained ankle, returned to practice today. He was joined by running back James Starks, who also has a bum ankle.
Both players were limited.
Besides Burnett, cornerback Sam Shields and his balky knee remained out.
