Tight end Trey Burton was added to the injury report late Saturday, unusual timing on the eve of the Bears’ wild-card game against Burton’s former team, the Eagles.

Burton’s status was changed to questionable with a groin injury. He was not on the injury report after practice Friday. It’s unclear what triggered the change. The Bears typically have a dance contest and walkthrough on Saturdays before going to their hotel for meetings.

Burton — who threw the “Philly Special” pass to Eagles quarterback Nick Foles in the Super Bowl last season — has played in all 16 games this season. In his five-year career, he has played in 77 of a possible 80 games.

Pro Bowl safety Eddie Jackson, who is questionable with a sprained right ankle, is the Bears’ other compelling injury case. The Bears will announce their active players 90 minutes before the 3:40 p.m. kickoff Sunday at Soldier Field.
