  Bears | Trey Burton lands on IR    Sat Nov 16, 02:46 PM

Chicago Bears TE Trey Burton (groin/calf) on Saturday, Nov. 16, was placed on the Reserve/Injured list.

Footballguys view: Burton was the No. 6 fantasy tight end last year in his first season with the Bears. In 2019, Burton has mostly been a non-factor in the offense and finishes with just 14 catches for 84 yards. The Bears move forward with Adam Shaheen and Ben Braunecker at the position.

  Bears | Trey Burton not fully healthy    Wed Nov 6, 02:10 PM

Chicago Bears TE Trey Burton (groin) is still not fully recovered from the groin injury he has been dealing with for months, according to head coach Matt Nagy.

Footballguys view: We could tell something wasn't quite right about Burton just by watching him. In seven games so far this year, Burton only has 14 catches for 84 yards. Fantasy GMs have moved on a long time ago....and the Bears may move on from him next offseason. Burton is due $8.55 million with $7.5 million in dead cap.

  Bears | Trey Burton listed as limited    Fri Nov 1, 03:43 PM

Chicago Bears TE Trey Burton (groin) was limited during practice Friday, Nov. 1, but is not on the injury report for Week 9.

Footballguys view: Burton probably isn't going to be 100% this year no matter how he is listed on the injury report. He's not worth rostering in typical leagues.

  Bears | Chicago Week 4 injury report    Fri Sep 27, 02:55 PM

Chicago Bears WR Taylor Gabriel (concussion) and DT Bilal Nichols (hand) did not practice Friday, Sept. 27, and have been ruled out for the Week 4 game against the Minnesota Vikings. PK Eddy Pineiro (knee) and TE Trey Burton (groin) were limited Friday and are listed as questionable as are DT Akiem Hicks (knee) and OL Kyle Long (hip) who didn't practice Friday. DB Eddie Jackson (shoulder), DE Roy Robertson-Harris (glute), OL Bobby Massie (illness) WR Cordarrelle Patterson (triceps) and RB Mike Davis (personal non-injury) practiced in full Friday and did not receive a Week 4 designation.

Footballguys view: Anthony Miller should see more playing time this week with Gabriel out. If Burton is closer to full speed, then could be a good what the heck tight end play against the Vikings.

Chicago Bears TE Trey Burton (groin), NT Eddie Goldman (oblique), Nick Kwiatkoski (knee) and DT Bilal Nichols (knee) were limited in practice Friday, Sept. 13, and are listed as questionable for Week 2 versus the Denver Broncos. OL Rashaad Coward (elbow) fully participated in practice for a third straight day Friday and no longer appears on the injury report.

Footballguys view: Burton is looking like a game time decision again. That makes it hard to trust him in a late start game despite the great matchup with the Broncos.

  Bears | Trey Burton limited again    Thu Sep 12, 05:29 PM

Chicago Bears TE Trey Burton (groin) was limited during practice Thursday, Sept. 12.

Footballguys view: Burton says he has good and bad days with this new injury. He is sorely needed by this offense and he could be a good play against the Broncos, who struggle against good tight ends, but this is setting up to be another game time decision. Adam Shaheen would get more snaps and Ben Braunecker would take his place in the lineup if Burton can't go.

  Bears | Trey Burton limited    Wed Sep 11, 06:34 PM

Chicago Bears TE Trey Burton (groin) was limited during practice Wednesday, Sept. 11.

Footballguys view: If Burton plays against the Broncos in Week 2, then he's got TE1 upside...partly because of his talent but also because Denver struggles to cover tight ends and has for years. We'll see if Burton can get a full practice in on Friday.

  Bears | Trey Burton will be game day decision    Wed Sep 11, 03:48 PM

Chicago Bears TE Trey Burton (groin) is considered day-to-day due to the injury which held him out of the Week 1 opener.

Footballguys view: It's important to note because the Bears play the Broncos (who can't cover tight ends) on Sunday. Head coach Matt Nagy said his Week 2 status will be determined Sunday, Sept. 15. If Burton plays, he's worth a deep flex or TE1 start just because of the matchup. Adam Shaheen gets that status...perhaps as a TE2 with upside since the Broncos have historically struggled to cover tight ends and allowed Raiders TE Darren Waller to get 7 catches for 70 yards in Week 1.

The Chicago Bears have declared CB Kevin Toliver, DL Abdullah Anderson, LB Josh Woods, TE Trey Burton, RB Kerrith Whyte, OG Rashaad Coward and WR Riley Ridley inactive for Week 1.

Footballguys view: Ben Braunecker and Adam Shaheen will get extra snaps at tight end with Burton out. Hopefully a long week of rest will have him ready to go for Week 2 at Denver.

Chicago Bears TE Trey Burton (groin) ran routes on the field with position coach Kevin Gilbride Thursday, Sept. 5, ahead of the Bears' season-opener against the Green Bay Packers. Burton is officially regarded as questionable due to a groin strain.

Footballguys view: Even if Burton goes, he's a dicey play. If he doesn't Adam Shaheen becomes a deep sleeper and Ben Braunecker will get a lot more playing time tonight.

  Bears | Trey Burton questionable    Wed Sep 4, 01:14 PM

Chicago Bears TE Trey Burton (groin) was limited in practice Wednesday, Sept. 4, and is listed as questionable for Week 1.

Footballguys view: His status is up in the air for Thursday night against the Packers. However, we think he's likely to miss the first game and that makes Adam Shaheen the top tight end for the Bears. We'll see if Burton can make a late surge and get on the field for Week 1.

  Bears | No progress yet from Trey Burton    Tue Sep 3, 03:29 PM

Updating a previous report, Chicago Bears TE Trey Burton (groin) was limited during practice Tuesday Sept. 3.

Footballguys view: The Bears play on Thursday night to open up the NFL's 100th season. We don't think Burton will be ready by that time. Never say never, but it looks like Adam Shaheen could be the No. 1 tight end for Chicago in Week 1.

  Bears | Trey Burton day-to-day    Mon Sep 2, 12:46 PM

Updating a previous report, Chicago Bears TE Trey Burton (groin) is dealing with a 'mild groin strain' that is unrelated to his offseason sports hernia surgery, according to general manager Ryan Pace. Burton is considered day-to-day.

Footballguys view: He's day-to-day, but it's difficult to imagine that Burton will be out there for Thursday's season opener against the Packers. Expect Adam Shaheen to be the top tight end for the Bears in Week 1.

  Bears | Trey Burton unable to practice    Mon Sep 2, 01:18 AM

Chicago Bears TE Trey Burton (hernia) was unable to practice Sunday, Sept. 1 during the media portion of the session. Beat writer Brad Biggs feels it's less likely he is available for Week 1 against the Green Bay Packers on Thursday, Sept. 5.

Footballguys view: We'd be surprised if Burton actually was ready for Week 1. He's listed as day-to-day with a groin issue. Adam Shaheen should be the lead tight end for the Bears in the season opener against the Packers on Thursday night.

  Bears | Trey Burton could sit out preseason    Mon Aug 5, 02:38 PM

Updating a previous report, Chicago Bears TE Trey Burton (hernia) has no timeline for a return to practice as of Monday, Aug. 5, and it wouldn't be a 'great surprise' if the Bears held him out for the entire preseason in order to have him ready for Week 1 versus the Green Bay Packers, according to Pro Football Talk's Josh Alper.

Footballguys view: Bears coach Matt Nagy insists that Burton has not had any setbacks in his recovery from hernia surgery. Nagy says 'We need him for Week 1.' That's why the Bears are going to keep him out of the preseason. Until we hear something different, it looks like Fantasy GMs can target Burton for a return in the season opener. Burton has low-end TE1 upside with a current ADP of TE16 (13.06) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Bears | Trey Burton still out    Mon Aug 5, 11:38 AM

Chicago Bears TE Trey Burton (undisclosed) remains out of practice Monday, Aug. 5. He was out Friday, Aug. 2, due to a planned day off and didn't practice the following day either.

Footballguys view: The team said he didn't have a setback, but we can't rule that out until he returns to the field. Until then, more chances for Adam Shaheen to impress, assuming he can stay healthy, which hasn't been his forte.

  Bears | Trey Burton held out of practice    Sun Aug 4, 11:25 AM

Chicago Bears TE Trey Burton (hernia) was held out of practice by head coach Matt Nagy Friday, Aug. 2, and Saturday, Aug. 3. He had participated in the first five practices of training camp but was kept out of the two most recent sessions after appearing to struggle near the end of that stretch.

Footballguys view: Adam Shaheen is healthy-ish again after suffering some back problems early in camp and this could be an opening for him if Burton is suffering a setback. Burton's upside is limited this year with two new backs on the roster who can catch the ball and healthier wide receivers.

  Bears | Trey Burton ready for camp    Fri Jul 26, 10:18 PM

Chicago Bears TE Trey Burton (hernia) participated in the first day of training camp Friday, July 26.

Footballguys view: Burton had sports hernia surgery this offseason and has been on the road to recovery ever since. He's the main target at the tight end position for the Bears last year but things are different this season. Mainly, the weapons in the passing game are healthier...including tight end Adam Shaheen. Keep this in mind when considering Burton for your fantasy team.

  Bears | Trey Burton expected for start of camp    Sun Jul 21, 05:22 PM

Chicago Bears TE Trey Burton (hernia) is expected to be ready for the start of training camp, according to head coach Ryan Pace on Sunday, July 21.

Footballguys view: The team will ease him back in, but it should be an uneventful return to action after a routine surgery. Adam Shaheen is the more healthy tight end and could make a bid for more targets if Burton is slow to return, but Burton will remain in the more fantasy friendly role.

  Bears | Chicago optimistic Trey Burton will be ready    Thu Jun 13, 02:44 PM

Chicago Bears TE Trey Burton (hernia) underwent surgery for a sports hernia during the offseason, but head coach Matt Nagy still 'feels good' about Burton's chances of being ready for the start of training camp, according to ESPN's Jeff Dickerson.

Footballguys view: In his first season with the Bears in 2018, Burton finished as the No. 6 fantasy tight end in standard-scoring formats. He might be hard pressed to duplicate that production this year, especially with fellow TE Adam Shaheen healthy. Burton's timeline in recovery always had him back for training camp, so he seems to be on track.

  Bears | Trey Burton to miss workouts    Wed May 29, 03:10 PM

Chicago Bears TE Trey Burton (hernia) will not participate in the offseason workouts because he is recovering from sports hernia surgery he had a few months ago.

Footballguys view: The potential is there with Burton...it always has been, but the kid needs to stay healthy. The team believes Burton will be back in time for training camp. We'll see if he can build on his chemistry with QB Mitchell Trubisky in his second season. Burton has a current ADP of TE18 (13.11) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Bears | Trey Burton injury note    Tue Jan 8, 01:48 AM

Chicago Bears TE Trey Burton (groin) said Monday, Jan. 7, that he missed the club's Wild Card playoff game Sunday, Jan. 6, after he 'started to feel something' in his groin following practice Friday, Jan. 4, despite initially having no limitations. By Saturday, Jan. 5, it had 'locked up,' which he said was his 'body's way of handling threats' to his health.

Footballguys view: Burton signed with the Bears in free agency last spring and had 54 catches for 569 yards and six touchdowns in his first season in Chicago. If healthy in 2019 (and this injury should not linger into next season), Burton has TE1 upside for Fantasy GMs.

  Bears | Trey Burton gets into end zone    Sun Dec 16, 06:59 PM

Chicago Bears TE Trey Burton posted four grabs for 36 yards and a touchdown on seven targets in Week 15 against the Green Bay Packers.

Footballguys view: Burton was the only tight end or wide receiver for the Bears that delivered a strong game because Mitchell Trubisky spread the ball around and only threw the ball 28 times. He'll be a low TE1 against the 49ers.
