Restored to practice squad

Burton (hamstring) was restored to the Cowboys' practice squad Monday.

Analysis: Burton began the season on the practice squad injured list with a hamstring injury, but he'll now be able to return to the field. The 27-year-old appeared in just seven games across his first two seasons in Dallas.

Lands on practice squad IR

Burton (hamstring) was placed on Dallas' practice squad injured list Monday.

Analysis: After failing to make the initial 53-man roster, Burton was signed to Dallas' practice squad. He has since picked up a hamstring issue and will be forced to miss some time. The severity of the injury is unknown, but it certainly impacts his chances of a promotion to the active roster anytime soon.

Done in Dallas

The Cowboys released Burton (shoulder) on Tuesday, Rob Phillips of the team's official site reports.

Analysis: Burton appeared in seven games with the Cowboys over the last two seasons, so he could be a candidate to pop back up on the practice squad. In any case, the veteran cornerback isn't a candidate to pop up on the fantasy radar in IDP formats.

Hits injured reserve

The Cowboys placed Burton (shoulder) on IR on Saturday, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Analysis: Burton will miss the final three games of the regular season due to his shoulder injury, but he only played a reserve role in Dallas' secondary. On a more positive note for the Cowboys, Trevon Diggs (foot) is expected to come off IR.

Out against San Francisco

Burton (shoulder) has been ruled out for Sunday's game versus the 49ers, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Burton plays sparingly on defense, and his services would be designated for special teams in Week 15 because Anthony Brown, Jourdan Lewis and Chidobe Awuzie are all healthy. He'll aim to return next week against the Eagles.

Gets the call

The Cowboys elevated Burton from the 53-man roster via the practice squad Sunday.

Analysis: Burton will take the place of Chidobe Awuzie, who was placed on IR on Saturday with a hamstring injury. Burton saw action in three games with the Cowboys in 2019, seeing just three defensive snaps, so he'll likely assume a similar role if he suits up in Week 3.

From Colts to Cowboys

Dallas signed Burton off the Colts' practice squad Wednesday, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: 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.

Picks up injury

Burton (undisclosed) did not practice Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Analysis: 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 time due to injury could impact his chances of making the 53-man roster.
