NFL training camps are officially in full swing, with veterans reporting across the league. Stay up to date with Yahoo Sports on the latest news, highlights, injuries, holdouts and everything else you need to know.
Treylon Burks’ knee injury isn’t as serious as it initially seemed.
The Tennessee Titans wide receiver, who was carted off the field during a joint practice with the Minnesota Vikings on Wednesday, sprained his LCL, according to the NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.
While the injury was initially concerning, Burks is now expected to miss only a few weeks.
Burks caught a deep pass from Ryan Tannehill during the joint practice on Wednesday and stumbled his way into the end zone before falling down. As he stood back up, Burks started limping instantly.
He was eventually helped off the field and attended to by trainers before being carted off the field.
“You hate seeing that,” Tannehill said, via ESPN’s Turron Davenport. “We’ll find out more information and see what’s really going on, but hopefully he’s going to be all right. He seemed obviously upset, and understandably so. Our thoughts and prayers are with him right now, and hopefully it’s not too bad.”
According to Rapoport, Burks is now expected to be sidelined for just a few weeks. The Titans open their season on Sept. 10 against the New Orleans Saints, which is a little more than three weeks away. It’s unclear if he’ll be ready to go by Week 1.
Burks, 23, recorded 444 receiving yards and scored one touchdown in 11 games last season. The Titans selected him with the No. 18 overall pick in last year’s draft out of Arkansas.
The Titans and Vikings will square off in their preseason game on Saturday.
Yahoo Sports’ team of reporters, Charles Robinson, Jori Epstein and Charles McDonald will be spread across the country in the coming weeks to cover it all.
