Burnett (calf) tallied six tackles (five solo), deflected a pass, and recorded a sack in Sunday's victory over the Bears.

Burnett's status for Sunday's game was cloudy after he was downgraded to questionable Saturday, but he was able to start and played his usual role until he and most of the Packers' other key players were removed with the game in hand. Burnett may still be dealing with some soreness in his calf, but it seems likely he will be able to play next week after suiting up Sunday.

Burnett (calf) has been downgraded to questionable for Sunday night's game against the Bears.

Burnett practiced in full all week and was previously listed as probable, but this development clouds his availability for Sunday's game. The 25-year-old has certainly been a serviceable IDP option when healthy, averaging more than eight tackles per game so far this season, but he'll make for a somewhat risky option this week given the 8:30 PM ET kickoff.

Burnett (calf) is inactive for Sunday night's game against the Saints.

Burnett (calf) is listed as questionable for Sunday night's game against New Orleans, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Coach Mike McCarthy sounded somewhat optimistic about Burnett's chances of playing, saying that the safety is making progress. "It's a night game," McCarthy added. "So we have time." The upside of the night kickoff is that it gives Burnett more time to heal, the downside, of course, is that fantasy owners may be left without a fallback option if Burnett is declared inactive. If you're in that situation, it is probably best to find a healthier alternative this week. Burnett looks like he could be a true game-time decision.

Burnett (calf) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice, Jason Wilde of ESPN Wisconsin reports.

Burnett has been rock solid in his fifth NFL campaign, totaling 58 tackles (44 solo) and one forced fumble in seven contests. Because the injury emerged suddenly, his absence Wednesday may be a precautionary measure. As a result, his practice participation should be watched with a keen eye as the week continues to ensure he's active Sunday at New Orleans.
