After a frightening tumble against the Steelers, Treylon Burks of the Titans is in the…

KDKA (Pittsburgh) — Tennessee Titans wide receiver Treylon Burks is in concussion protocol after being carted off the field Thursday against the Pittsburgh Steelers at Acrisure Stadium.In an update on Friday, Titans coach Mike Vrabel said the second-year wide receiver briefly lost consciousness after he landed hard on the field after trying to catch a fourth-down pass from quarterback Will Levis.

Burks was carted off late in the fourth quarter after he landed awkwardly on the turf. Before removing his facemask and strapping him to a spine board, medical personnel removed him from the field. Burks had two catches for 23 yards in the game’s conclusion.

According to ESPN, Burks and Vrabel texted, and Burks was expected to be at the team’s facility on Friday.

According to the team’s website, Vrabel stated, “There was a brief loss of consciousness, that is why (medical personnel) reacted in the manner in which they did.” “It appears that all parties followed the protocol to the letter, ensuring that Treylon’s welfare was investigated as soon as possible and accurately.”

ESPN also reported that Thursday was the second time in his NFL career that Burks was unconscious during a game. On Dec. 4, 2022, against the Philadelphia Eagles, Burks was knocked unconscious by Eagles safety Marcus Epps.

Due to Thursday’s game, the Titans have extended off time before hitting the field again. Tennessee next plays on Nov. 12 at the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
