Indianapolis Colts TE Trey Burton (calf) will miss some time with a calf strain, according to a source, who added the injury is not as serious as initially expected.
Huddle Up: Health remains a ? for Burton, who missed half of last season in Chicago. In the meantime, the potential target share for Jack Doyle looks to be growing larger as Indy's No. 1 tight end.

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.
