When will Treylon Burks return and be back for the Titans?

Update: The Titans designated Burks to return from IR on November 9. This opens up the 21-day window for the WR to be activated for game play. It is possible he plays this weekend against the Broncos but that is far from a guarantee.

So when will Treylon Burks return and be back in action for Mike Vrabel’s Titans? Here is what TheLines injury expert Will Carroll has to say about the Burks toe injury.

“Turf toe doesn’t sound like much, but it’s extremely painful and tough to treat,” Carroll said. “The most common method is putting a steel or carbon fiber insole under the affected foot, but that really takes away from the ability to accelerate and stop. For Treylon Burks, he’s simply not able to do this yet and went on IR to give him a couple weeks of rest and treatment. One plus is this is not considered a surgical case, so he should be able to heal in the normal 4-6 weeks.”

The most likely return game for Burks is the Titans’ November 17 game at the Packers. Here is a general timeline of the games in which we could see Burks be back.

  • Week 10 Sunday, November 13: Broncos at Titans
  • Week 11 Thursday, November 17: Titans at Packers
  • Week 12: Sunday, November 27: Bengals at Titans
