News: Burnett (oblique) returned to practice Monday, Tyler Dunne of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. Impact: Burnett strained his oblique to begin last week and ultimately was held out of Saturday's preseason opener as a precaution. Now healed, he rejoined his teammates for Monday's session and figures to start Green Bay's next outing, should he remain healthy. As a result, second-year player Micah Hyde, a converted cornerback, will likely compete with rookie first-rounder Ha Ha Clinton-Dix for free safety snaps next to Burnett.(RotoWire, )

News: Burnett (oblique) is considered "day-to-day" by Packers coach Mike McCarthy, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. Impact: Burnett suffered a strained oblique during Monday night's practice and has been sidelined since. Considering his importance as the Packers' starting strong safety, it wouldn't be surprising if Burnett was held out for Saturday's first preseason game against the Titans. In any case, Micah Hyde and Ha Ha Clinton-Dix will form Green Bay's first-team safety duo until Burnett returns.(RotoWire, )

News: Burnett has suffered an oblique strain, the Packers' official Twitter account reports. Impact: Burnett was forced into an early exit at Monday night's practice because of the ailment, which also prevented him from playing Tuesday. At the moment, it's unclear how long Burnett's oblique strain will keep him sidelined, although the Packers expect to pin down a more definitive timetable fairly soon. With Burnett out, Micah Hyde and rookie Ha Ha Clinton-Dix composed Green Bay's starting safety unit at Tuesday's practice.(RotoWire, )

News: Burnett, who pulled out of Monday's practice with an undisclosed injury, is not practicing during Tuesday's session, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. Impact: Burnett's injury has yet to be addressed, so right now, it's unclear what it means going forward. In any event, Burnett embodies an important figure at strong safety for the Packers. Despite dropping his 2012 tackle total of 123 to just 96 last season, Burnett still retains significant IDP value, making his injury situation worthwhile to monitor.(RotoWire, )
