Burns said he hyperextended his knee during Wednesday's practice, and he was officially listed as not participating on Thursday's injury report, even though he had predicted he would be limited. Burns is receiving treatment for the injury.
"Just get ready for Sunday, get healthy," Burns said.
The Athletic reported that Burns suffered a noncontact injury to his right knee. A source told ESPN on Wednesday that there did not appear to be significant damage to Burns' knee, and he was officially listed as limited Wednesday after leaving practice early.
Burns, 22, is in his second season with the Steelers and started every game in the regular season. He had one interception and 13 pass deflections this season.
