Tennessee Titans WR Treylon Burks (toe) is eligible to return from the Reserve/Injured list ahead of Week 10 and "done everything that we asked him to do," according to head coach Mike Vrabel.
"We'll see how (Burks) is feeling. He has worked extremely hard to stay in shape and condition, take care of his body, lift. ... I think this is the best he has been from the standpoint of handling a distraction ... Whenever he is ready, I'm excited for him to get back out there. We'll see where that is this week because he has been in here, he has been on time and he has done everything that we asked him to do. We'll just have to see where he is at physically," Vrabel said at his presser Monday, Nov. 7.
Huddle Up: Even though Burks was not doing a lot before his injury, the Tennessee passing game has gone in the tank without him. The Titans have passed for more than 136 yards only twice all season, so it is not as if Burks' eventual return leads to a metamorphosis of this offense. With that said, Burks possesses some A.J. Brown-like qualities, so he could be a difference-maker for fantasy managers down the stretch. Especially if Ryan Tannehill (ankle) returns soon, stash Burks if you can because he boasts significant upside.
