Jaguars placed WR Stephen Burton (concussion) on injured reserve, ending his season.

Burton couldn't shake the concussion he sustained in Week 10, hinting at serious complications. It's a shame as the Jaguars coaches were very interested in seeing what he had following Justin Blackmon's suspension. Burton finishes his first season in Jacksonville with eight catches for 76 yards in four games. His rookie deal doesn't expire until 2015, giving him a good shot at securing a roster spot next August.

Jaguars declared WR Stephen Burton, QB Ricky Stanzi, RB Justin Forsett, DT Brandon Deaderick, WR Jeremy Ebert, OG Jacques McClendon and FS Josh Evans inactive for Week 14 against the Texans.

Burton is week to week with a concussion. Evans (shoulder) had been previously ruled out. Winston Guy will start in his absence. Deaderick is a healthy scratch with DE Jeremy Mincey returning from his team-imposed suspension.

Jaguars WR Stephen Burton (concussion) will not play in Thursday's game against the Texans.

Burton is having tons of trouble getting cleared following his Week 10 concussion. Cecil Shorts, Mike Brown and Ace Sanders will be Chad Henne's top-three wideouts Thursday night.

Jaguars WR Stephen Burton (concussion) has been ruled out for Week 13.

Assuming Mike Brown (shoulder) can play through his questionable tag, he would likely be Jacksonville's No. 2 wide receiver in Sunday's game at Cleveland.

Jaguars WR Stephen Burton (concussion) has been ruled out for Week 12.

If Mike Brown (shoulder) can't play against the Texans, the Jaguars will turn to some rotation of Kerry Taylor and Ace Sanders across from Cecil Shorts.

Jaguars WR Stephen Burton (concussion) has yet to be cleared to practice.

Burton's status has taken on increased importance with Mike Brown (shoulder) banged up, but it appears he's going to miss Sunday's game against the Texans. It's a shame for a player coach Gus Bradley talked up following Justin Blackmon's season-ending suspension.
Thu, Nov 21, 2013 01:53:00 PM

Jaguars WR Stephen Burton (concussion) has been ruled out for Week 11.

Expect Ace Sanders to be Jacksonville's third receiver against Arizona.

Stephen Burton (concussion) has yet to resume practicing.

Jacksonville's No. 3 receiver is going to miss Sunday's game against the Cardinals. Burton is week to week.

Jaguars WR Stephen Burton is done for the day in Week 10 with a concussion.

Look for Ace Sanders to fill in as Jacksonville's No. 3 receiver behind Cecil Shorts and Mike Brown. Burton suffered a concussion earlier this year, so his next absence could be extended.
Sun, Nov 10, 2013 03:32:00 PM

Coach Gus Bradley singled out Stephen Burton as someone he wants to step up with Justin Blackmon suspended for the year.

The Jags claimed Burton off waivers from the Vikings just before Week 1. He's missed the last five games due to a concussion, watching Mike Brown shine as the No. 3 wideout. Now that Brown is the No. 2 man, there's a job opening. "We've always been intrigued by [Burton]," Bradley said. "He's 6-1, 220 pounds and [runs a] 4.4. We've been really developing him to see what he can do." It's a name to stash on watch lists.

Jaguars WR Stephen Burton (concussion) has been cleared to resume practicing.

However, he officially sat out on Thursday. The end-of-roster receiver has been sidelined since Week 4. Even if Burton gains full medical clearance for Sunday's game against the Chargers, there's no guarantee he'll be active.
Thu, Oct 17, 2013 01:52:00 PM

Jaguars WR Stephen Burton (concussion) has been ruled out for Week 4.

Ace Sanders will likely start with both Burton and Mike Brown (back) ruled out against the Colts. Cecil Shorts should gobble up targets in a plus matchup. Hopefully Blaine Gabbert will be able to get him the ball. Hopefully.

Jaguars WR Stephen Burton (concussion-like symptoms) did not practice Wednesday.

Burton, claimed off waivers from the Vikings ahead of Week 1, saw nine targets in last week's loss to the Seahawks. The Jaguars are very thin at receiver with Burton, Mike Brown (back), and Justin Blackmon (suspended) unavailable.
Wed, Sep 25, 2013 03:36:00 PM

Stephen Burton caught five passes for 42 yards in Sunday's Week 3 loss to the Seahawks.

A castoff of the Vikings, Burton was claimed off waivers by the Jags just prior to Week 1. Now he's operating as the clear No. 2 receiver and racked up nine targets Sunday. Of course, the Jags passing game isn't capable of supporting more than one wideout, so only extreme deep leaguers should take a gander. Burton won't have any fantasy value when Justin Blackmon returns from his four-game suspension.
