Indianapolis Colts TE Trey Burton (hip, sports hernia) said Friday, April 24, he was 'misdiagnosed' and rushed back from a sports hernia in 2019 with the Chicago Bears, implying that it resulted in hip surgery and his release from the Bears.
Huddle Up: Burton caught only 14 passes for 84 yards in eight games last season, and presuming he's ready for the season as expected, he'll vie with Jack Doyle for tight-end targets this season. Just don't count him in standard fantasy leagues.

Free-agent TE Trey Burton (Bears) agreed to terms on an undisclosed contract with the Indianapolis Colts Wednesday, April 22, according to his agency.
Huddle Up: Burton will help to replace the free-agent loss of TE Eric Ebron and work alongside Jack Doyle. QB Philip Rivers has long loved throwing to tight ends, including Antonio Gates and Hunter Henry. Burton could be worth a late-round pick as a low-end TE1 depending on practice reps between him and Doyle this offseason.

TE Trey Burton (hip), who is expected to be released by the Chicago Bears, should be ready well before training camp begins after having off-season hip surgery. Since the Bears will still owe him $4 million after his release, it isn't expected that he will cost another team very much, per ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Chicago Bears TE Trey Burton (hip) recently underwent surgery on his injured hip, according to general manager Ryan Pace.
Huddle Up: Burton flashed occasionally in 2018, but his two-year stint with the Bears has been riddled with injury and inconsistency. (It's fair to wonder how much Mitchell Trubisky has to do with the latter.) With two years left on his four-year. $32 million deal, it wouldn't be surprising to see Chicago give him one more chance in 2020. As far as his fantasy value is concerned, however, owners in most leagues can ignore him for the time being.

Chicago Bears TE Trey Burton (groin/calf) on Saturday, Nov. 16, was placed on the Reserve/Injured list.
Huddle Up: Burton, a summer fantasy TE sleeper pick, has been a huge disappointment this season, catching only 14 passes for 84 yards and no TDs in eight games so far. That leaves Adam Shaheen and Ben Braunecker as the Bears' top TE options the rest of the season, but neither are usuable outside of super-deep or tight end-premium leagues.

Chicago Bears TE Trey Burton (calf) did not participate in practice Thursday, Nov. 14.
Huddle Up: Burton has not had a big role in the passing game this season and should be avoided in all leagues even if he plays in Week 11.
