Burnett finished the 2016 season with 93 tackles, including 3.0 sacks, and nine passes defensed, including two interceptions, in 15 games played.

EDGE Analysis

Burnett was one of Green Bay's best defenders in 2016, playing in 91.9 percent of the team's defensive snaps. Defensive coordinator Dom Capers moved Burnett around more than in past seasons and Burnett responded with a career high in sacks while posting the second best passes defensed and interception numbers of his career. The Packers finished the season ranked 22nd in total defense and 31st in pass defense, and they'll look to improve around Burnett and bounce back in 2017.

Burnett (quadriceps) is expected to be available for Sunday's NFC championship game in Atlanta, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

EDGE Analysis

Burnett skipped the first two practices of the week, focusing his energy on rehabbing his injured quad, but he was listed as "limited" on the Packers' estimated injury report Friday. Although he remained questionable after Saturday's light session, he seems to have a good shot to suit up Sunday in his typical starting spot at strong safety.

According to head coach Mike McCarthy, Burnett (quadriceps) will be given a chance to play Sunday against the Falcons.

EDGE Analysis

Burnett did not take part in practice the past two days, but could still manage to take the field Sunday against the Falcons. His status on Saturday will play a major role in his availability for the game, so look for more updates to come in the next day. Should he be ruled out, expect Kentrell Brice and Micah Hyde to split time at strong safety.

Burnett (quadricep) didn't take part in Wednesday's practice, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Instead, Burnett's focus was on rehab. The preceding regimen is necessary after injuring his thigh on a collision with teammate Ladarius Gunter during Sunday's divisional-round victory at Dallas, knocking Burnett from the game early, per Ryan Wood of USA Today. Due to his do-it-all nature up the middle of the Packers' defense, Burnett's activity level will be viewed with a watchful eye as the week unfolds.

Burnett made eight tackles (five solo) and intercepted a pass in Sunday's victory over the Seahawks.

EDGE Analysis

Burnett's interception was his second of the season, and also helped him up his count in the passes defensed department to eight. Burnett has been spending more time close to the line of scrimmage of late, and it is showing in his tackle totals: he recorded no fewer than eight stops each of the last three weeks after reaching that mark just three times in all over his first nine games of the season.

Burnett had nine tackles (seven solo) and recovered a fumble in Sunday's victory over the Texans.

EDGE Analysis

The nine tackles tied for Burnett's second highest total of the season and were his most in a game since Week 8. He has an outside shot to reach 100 tackles for the fourth time in his career, but with just four games to go, he will need a slight improvement upon his 2016 average of 6.4 tackles per game in order to hit that mark.
