Bears tight end Trey Burton is, as expected, questionable for Sunday’s game against the Broncos. He finished a week of practice, all on a limited basis, Friday as he continues to recover from a groin injury.
“I’ll say this: I feel better this week than I did last week at this time,” Nagy said.” So you know that’s by no means saying that he’s going to play — I’m not saying that — but what I’m saying is I definitely feel better right now, today, than I did last week at this time.”
Burton, who Nagy said would be a game-time decision, was one of four players ruled questionable. Nose tackle Eddie Goldman was limited Friday after sitting out Thursday’s practice. He hurt his oblique during Wednesday’s practice.
Linebacker Nick Kwiatkoski and defensive end Bilal Nichols were both limited with knee injuries Friday — and ruled questionable. Nichols will play Sunday, though — the team merely holds him out of Friday practices on the turf of their indoor facility.
Burton said this week that, as frustrated as he was by not being able to play in the Bears’ season-opening loss, he was truly day-to-day.
“I want to be able to see his feedback on how he feels,” Nagy said. “I know he felt good last week, he felt good but we just felt collectively, it’s not just him, he’s not going to just tell us whether he’s playing or not. We’re going to all work together so we’ll see how he looks out there when he gets to that point. And hopefully he’s good to go. And if he is, we’re prepared.”
