GREEN BAY, Wis. (WTAQ) - Green Bay Packers rookie starting Safety Morgan Burnett will miss the rest of the season after tearing his ACL in Sunday's win over the Detroit Lions.
Packers coach Mike McCarthy at his Monday press conference said it's unclear when the injury happened.
"Still do not know. It’s remarkable to watch the tape. He played 23 snaps in the game. I want to say it probably happened somewhere between probably his ninth and 12th snap in the game. There’s no real clear-cut picture when he did it. To watch him play, I think it was at least two full series after that, and also on the punt protection. Dr. McKenzie last night felt pretty strong about it in his examination, and it was confirmed this morning. We just got the news."
