Bears TE Trey Burton said groin 'completely locked up'

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

The Bears made tight end Trey Burton a late addition to their injury report with a groin injury that would keep him from playing in the 16-15 season-ending loss to the Eagles.

Burton said on Monday he became aware of the issue last Friday and thought he would be able to push through it before waking up on Saturday to find things were “completely locked up.” He tried “everything possible” to loosen up, but it didn’t work out for him.

Fantasy Impact:

Burton said he considered whether his issue on Wild Card weekend was a mental one, but felt he was in “a really good spot” mentally and that the reason for his absence from the lineup was purely physical, the story would add.

Scouting Report

Wild Card Playoffs vs. Philadelphia Eagles

Trey Burton wasn't great in 2018, but not a lot of tight ends were. Even though Burton put up fairly low numbers (averaged 35 yards per game), he still finished as the eighth-highest scoring tight end. He finished the year with at least four receptions and 30+ yards in three straight games, so you can likely expect production somewhere in that range with a possibility for a score. He does get a tough matchup against the Eagles, who allowed the fifth-fewest fantasy points to opposing TEs. Philly only gave up two touchdowns to the position all season.
