Burnett (groin) has been ruled out for Sunday's matchup against the Bengals.

EDGE Analysis

Burnett didn't log a practice this week and hasn't played since Week 2 against the Chiefs. In the former Packer's absence, fellow safety Terrell Edmunds has gotten at least 70 defensive snaps per game. That volume is likely to continue with Burnett sidelined again.

Burnett (groin) is considered doubtful for Sunday's game against the Falcons, Teresa Varley of Steelers.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Burnett was unable to participate in practice Thursday and Friday after limited participation Wednesday, so his outlook for Sunday in terms of potential availability worsened throughout the week. If Burnett is unable to suit up Week 5, Terrell Edmunds would be in line to draw his fourth start of the season at strong safety.

Burnett (groin) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Joe Rutter of the Trib Live reports.

EDGE Analysis

Burnett was able to fully participate in practice to begin the week, so Thursday's participation is a downgrade. It remains to be seen whether the veteran safety suffered a setback, or whether the Steelers' are simply taking a cautious approach to Burnett's recovery. Burnett should be considered questionable to suit up for Sunday's game against the Ravens.

Burnett (groin) is inactive for Monday's game against the Buccaneers, Teresa Varley of the Steelers' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Burnett was limited in practice all week and was doubtful heading into Monday. The veteran's absence will hurt Pittsburgh's depth at the safety position, but rookie Terrell Edmunds looks poised to take on a starting role against the Buccaneers.

The Steelers have listed Burnett (groin) as doubtful for Monday night's matchup with the Buccaneers, Ray Fittipaldo of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

EDGE Analysis

Burnett was limited at practice throughout the week, so it surprising that he did not draw a questionable designation. If he is unable to suit up, as it currently seems liikely, Jordan Dangerfield, Nat Berhe, and Marcus Allen could all see a slight bump in action.
