Packers safety Morgan Burnett upgraded to probable for Seattle, could boost run defense


GREEN BAY, Wisconsin — Starting safety Morgan Burnett has been upgraded to probable by the Green Bay Packers on the injury report for the game Sunday night against the Seattle Seahawks.

Burnett had been listed as questionable after being limited in the first two days of practice this week because of a calf injury that kept him out of the season opener against Chicago. Burnett wore a black wrap around his lower left leg earlier in the week.

Green Bay was returning to practice on Saturday after having Friday off.

Getting Burnett back will be important for a defense that struggled against the run last week.
