If you drafted Trey Burton as your starting tight end this year, it didn't work out very well for you. If you drafted him as your starting tight end for the postseason, things aren't off to a great start. Looks like one more gut-punch to Burton fans; he's questionable for Chicago's playoff opener.
Burton popped up as questionable on the injury report after apparently suffering a groin injury in practice. He might not play, and nobody should count on him. The Bears would plug in Adam Shaheen, who also has some receiving ability. If you're in a daily competition, he might be a viable cheap option -- if Burton is inactive, that is.
In other news:
Austin Ekeler (groin) is questionable for the Chargers. He's reportedly headed in the right direction, which sounds promising, but risky to count on him. If he's inactive, Justin Jackson would fill that third-down role behind Melvin Gordon.
The Chargers didn't activate Hunter Henry (knee) for this game, so Antonio Gates will again be the main receiving tight end. The team says Henry could play next week, which is nice and all, but the Chargers have some work to do before even thinking about getting to play a game next week, at New England.
Assuming the Bears don't break him in half today, there will be a quality trade market for Nick Foles.
Bruce Arians is the favorite to be the next head coach in Tampa Bay. Guess his retirement didn't stick.
Opening Vegas line on next week's Colts at Kansas City game is 4.5-5.5, with an over-under of 56. Spread's a little closer than you might expect when the No. 6 seed travels to face the No. 1 seed, but the Colts aren't a typical 6 seed, and Kansas City is far from an accomplished playoff participant under Andy Reid, so it isn't surprising.
