Morgan Burnett, Bud Dupree top injured list at Steelers minicamp

June 13, 2018

Safety Morgan Burnett confirmed he did not take part in the first day of minicamp Tuesday because of injury. The veteran offseason acquisition downplayed the significance of the undisclosed injury, though, saying he “was fine.”

Jordan Dangerfield was taking first-team reps in Burnett’s place during the first of three mandatory minicamp practices at UPMC Rooney Sports Complex.

Only three players on the roster have more NFL experience than Burnett, who spent his previous eight seasons with the Green Bay Packers.

Outside linebacker Bud Dupree said he took reps in 7-on-7 drills Tuesday but that he had aggravated a shoulder injury last week during organized team activities.

Training camp opens July 25.
