Bears vs. Packers inactives: No Oren Burks to open 2018 season

New, comments

Oren Burks, the Packers’ third-round pick back in April, will miss the first game of the season with a shoulder injury.

The Green Bay Packers drafted Oren Burks with an eye on stopping über-athletic offensive weapons like the Chicago Bears’ Tarik Cohen. While Burks should make his regular-season debut soon, he’ll have to wait until at least next week as his lingering shoulder injury has landed him on the inactive list.

Wide receiver and returner Trevor Davis joins Burks on the sidelines Sunday night. The Packers added him to the injury report earlier Sunday evening with a hamstring injury. Accordingly, return duties this week will fall to Ty Montgomery and less experienced players, perhaps rookies Jaire Alexander, Josh Jones, and Marquez Valdes-Scantling.

As the team previously indicated, defensive back Josh Jones will also miss the season opener with an ankle injury. Jones did not participate in practice throughout the week, though he could return as early as the Packers’ Week 2 tilt with the Minnesota Vikings.
