Burris injured his groin in Week 3. He’ll be eligible to return after three games on IR.
Burris, 28, is a former fourth-round pick of the Jets back in 2016 out of NC State. He was in the third year of his four-year, $2.89 million contract when the Jets waived him in 2018.
The Jets re-signed Burris to their practice squad after he cleared waivers but he eventually joined the Browns not long after. Cleveland elected to re-sign him to a one-year, $645,000 deal.
From there, Burris signed a two-year, $8 million contract with the Panthers last March.
In 2021, Burris has appeared in three games for the Panthers and recorded 10 total tackles, one interception and one pass defense.
