Reports: Packers fear LB Burks has torn pec

Linebacker Oren Burks, a projected starter for the Green Bay Packers, reportedly tore a pectoral muscle, according to multiple reports Saturday.

As a rookie in 2018, he missed the first two games of the season while recovering from a shoulder injury and saw limited action, despite starting four games. He made 24 tackles on the season.

The Packers selected the Vanderbilt product in the third round of last year's draft.

Coach Matt LaFleur said Saturday that he didn't know if Burks would be out long term.

"Honestly, I don't really know anything right now," LaFleur told reporters. "It's kind of wait and see, but I hope not."

Burks, 24, sustained the injury in the first quarter of the preseason game on Thursday against the Houston Texans.
