Coach Mike Vrabel said Monday that Burks (concussion) is feeling better, but they have to wait to see how he progresses through concussion protocol before determining the wideout's status for Sunday's contest against the Jaguars, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.
Analysis: Burks suffered a concussion after hauling in his only target for a 25-yard touchdown during Sunday's loss to the Eagles. Given Vrabel's comments, it looks like the rookie first-round pick will have a chance to clear protocols and play in Week 14, but fantasy managers likely won't know his official status until later in the week. If Burks is sidelined, Robert Woods and Nick Westbrook-Ikhine would be Tennessee's top two wideouts against Jacksonville.

Burks who was evaluated for a concussion during Sunday's game against the Eagles, has been ruled out for the remainder of the contest, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.
Analysis: Prior to being forced out of the game, Burks caught his only target for a 25-yard touchdown. Robert Woods and Nick Westbrook-Ikhine are in line to lead Tennessee's wideout corps, with Burks now sidelined and targeting a potential return to action in Week 14 versus the Jaguars.

Burks is being evaluated for a concussion during Sunday's game against the Eagles, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: Prior to his exit from the contest, Burks caught his only target for a 25-yard TD. In his absence, Robert Woods and Nick Westbrook-Ikhine are in line to lead the Titans' Week 13 wideout corps.

Burks (illness) doesn't have a designation for Sunday's contest in Philadelphia, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.
Analysis: After sitting out Thursday's practice due to an illness, Burks managed to log every rep Friday, paving the way for him to be available this weekend. He could find the going tough, though, against an Eagles defense that has allowed the second-lowest YPT (6.9) and catch rate (57.4 percent) to opposing wide receivers this season.
Dec 2, 2022 1:19 PM EST
Burks (illness) returned to practice Friday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.
Analysis: Burks didn't practice Thursday, but his presence at practice Friday indicates that he's trending toward playing Sunday against the Eagles. Friday's injury report will clarify the wideout's participation level, as well as relay whether Burks will head into the weekend with a designation, or fully cleared for Week 13 action.
Dec 2, 2022 11:11 AM EST
Burks was added to the Titans' Week 13 injury report after failing to participate in Thursday's practice due to an illness, John Glennon of SI.com reports.
Analysis: Provided Burks' ailment isn't COVID-19-related or anything else that may significantly hinder him from a conditioning standpoint, he should still have a good chance at playing in this weekend's game at Philadelphia. Whether the rookie wideout carries a designation into that contest will likely hinge on the extent of his involvement in the Titans' final practice of the week Friday.

Burks caught four of six targets for 70 yards in Sunday's 20-16 loss to the Bengals. He also recovered a fumble in the end zone for a touchdown.
Analysis: The first touchdown of Burks' young NFL career came in unusual fashion. Derrick Henry did most of the heavy lifting on a 69-yard catch and run, but the ball popped out of his hands a few yards shy of the end zone. Burks pounced on it in the end zone for a touchdown that gave the Titans a short-lived 10-3 lead. While Burks' fantasy managers shouldn't expect him to score in this fashion often, the rookie first-round pick has been trending up lately, as 181 of his 334 receiving yards this season have come in the past two games.

Burks brought in seven of eight targets for 111 yards in the Titans' 27-17 win over the Packers on Thursday night.
Analysis: The rookie's night was shaping up as fairly average from a yardage perspective before he hauled in a 51-yard grab down the left sideline against Jaire Alexander just before the two-minute warning to seal the game for the Titans. Thanks to that play, Burks led Tennessee in receptions, receiving yards and targets, and he's now drawn 14 targets over his first two games back from a stint on IR with foot and toe injuries. Burks' next opportunity to build on a solid rookie campaign comes in a Week 12 home matchup against the Bengals a week from Sunday.
Nov 17, 2022 8:57 PM EST
Burks recorded three receptions on six targets for 24 yards in Sunday's 17-10 win over the Broncos.
Analysis: Burks suited up for his first game since Week 4, and he finished fourth on the team in targets. He got off to a slow start -- he caught only two of his first five targets for nine yards -- but delivered a 15-yard reception early in the third quarter to highlight his performance. The Titans have had one of the worst receiving corps in the league halfway through the season, so assuming Burks can remain healthy, he could have a significant role to close the campaign.

Burks (foot/toe) was activated off injured reserve Saturday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.
Analysis: Burks missed the minimum four games after suffering a turf toe injury back in Week 4. The rookie receiver had just 16 targets through the first four games of his career, but the Titans' passing offense has struggled mightily in recent weeks and could rely on Burks' big-play capabilities to turn things around.
Nov 12, 2022 1:06 PM EST
Burks (foot/toe) has been designated to return from IR by the Titans, Jim Wyatt of the team's official site reports.
Analysis: With the move, Burks can begin practicing Wednesday and has a 21-day window in which to be activated by the Titans. Prior to landing on IR on Oct. 8, the 2022 first-rounder recorded 10 catches for 129 yards (on 16 targets) in four games. Once the rookie pass-catcher is up to speed and ready for game action, there will be an opportunity for Burks to claim a key role in the Titans offense alongside fellow wideout Robert Woods, a scenario that should give the 6-foot-2, 225-pounder an opportunity to carve out some fantasy utility in the weeks ahead.

Burks (toe) was placed on injured reserve Saturday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.
Analysis: Burks failed to practice all week due to turf toe suffered during last week's win over the Colts and it'll now cost the rookie the next four games. Expect Robert Woods to see a heavy dose of the targets with Kyle Philips and Nick Westbrook-Ikhine also mixing in.
Oct 8, 2022 10:37 AM EST
Burks (toe) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Commanders, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.
Analysis: Now that Burks is unavailable Sunday, look for Kyle Philips and Nick Westbrook-Ikhine to see added Week 5 WR opportunities alongside Robert Woods, while TE Austin Hooper could also factor in the team's passing game more as well. With the Titans on bye next week, Burks will target a potential return to action in Week 7, when Tennessee hosts Indianapolis on Oct. 23.
Oct 7, 2022 11:26 AM EST
Burks (toe) remained sidelined at practice Thursday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.
Analysis: Friday's injury report will reveal whether Burks has any chance of playing Sunday against the Commanders, but back-to-back missed practices have him trending in the wrong direction. If the 2022 first-rounder is unavailable this weekend, Nick Westbrook-Ikhine, Kyle Philips and Cody Hollister would be in line for added Week 5 WR snaps alongside Robert Woods.
Oct 6, 2022 12:03 PM EST
Burks (toe) isn't practicing Wednesday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.
Analysis: Burks is expected to miss at least a game or two, though he hasn't officially been ruled out, after exiting the Week 4 win over Indianapolis with an injury that's reportedly been diagnosed as turf toe. Players often return from the injury in fairly short order, but there is a high risk of recurring problems with the affected foot/toe thereafter. An early bye in Week 6 could affect the Titans' thinking here, potentially allowing Burks to get two weeks of rest with just one missed game before returning to practice after the bye and attempting to play. If he does indeed miss the upcoming game against Washington on Sunday, the Titans have Nick Westbrook-Ikhine and Kyle Philips as the top candidates for WR snaps behind No. 1 receiver Robert Woods.
Oct 5, 2022 1:06 PM EST
Burks suffered a turf toe injury during Sunday's 24-17 win over the Colts, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Analysis: Burks won't require surgery to address the injury, but Rapoport reports that he's expected to miss multiple weeks and could hit IR. Coach Mike Vrabel, meanwhile, declined to offer an expected recovery timetable for the first-round rookie Monday, per Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site. If Burks does indeed miss time, all of Nick Westbrook-Ikhine, Kyle Philips and Cody Hollister could benefit from increased opportunities starting with Week 5's matchup against Washington.
Oct 3, 2022 10:23 AM EST
Burks was using crutches and sporting a boot on his left foot after Sunday's 24-17 win over the Colts, Terry McCormick of TitanInsider.com reports.
Analysis: While the Titans have yet to detail the severity of Burks' foot issue, the rookie wideout looks iffy for next Sunday's game against the Commanders. If Burks is forced to miss time, Nick Westbrook-Ikhine, Kyle Philips and Cody Hollister would be candidates for added WR snaps for Tennessee.
Oct 2, 2022 1:32 PM EST
Burks (foot) was carted to the locker room during Sunday's game against the Colts, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.
Analysis: Per Wyatt, Burks will not return to the game due to his foot injury. Prior to his exit, the 2022 first-rounder caught two of his three targets for 14 yards and rushed once for four yards.
Oct 2, 2022 12:41 PM EST
Burks (illness) was a full practice participant Thursday, John Glennon of SI.com reports.
Analysis: Burks' ability to get back on the field without restrictions suggests that the illness that kept him from practicing Wednesday won't affect his availability for Sunday's game in Indianapolis. The rookie first-round pick has seen a steady increase in his workload in each successive game this season, going from playing 37 percent of offensive snaps Week 1, 47 percent in Week 2 and 67 percent in Week 3.
Sep 29, 2022 1:21 PM EST
Burks (illness) returned to practice Thursday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.
Analysis: Burks didn't practice Wednesday, but his return to the field a day later puts the wideout on track to suit up Sunday against the Colts. That notion would be solidified if the Titans list him as a full participant on Thursday's upcoming practice/injury report.
