Seven Packers, Burnett Included, Declared Ineligible for Preseason Visit to Tennessee

Seven Packers, starting Safety Morgan Burnett included, have been declared ineligible for Saturday's preseason opener in Tennessee. 

Three of the other six, unsurprisingly, are the injured Jared Abbrederis, Don Barclay, and Colt Lyerla, with fellow Safety Tanner Miller, Defensive Tackle Letroy Guion, and Defensive End Jerel Worthy rounding things out.

According to's Rob Demovsky, Burnett suffered the oblique strain Monday, with its severity not yet known.

The Packers, coming off last season's NFC North-winning year, will somewhat begin their 2014 campaign Friday night at 7:00 pm CT, with the contest being shown on tape delay by NFL Network 8:00 am Saturday.
