Trey Burton will have to wait before restarting his career in Indianapolis.

During Saturday’s practice, the 29-year-old tight end was helped off the field after suffering a lower-body injury. Burton has a calf strain and will be out for a few weeks (via Mike Garafolo).

Heading into his sixth year, Burton injured his calf in Week 10 vs the Lions and was put on injured reserve for the rest of the season. He also had surgery on a torn labrum in his hip on New Year’s Eve.

Pro Bowl tight end Jack Doyle already was limited with a neck injury. The Colts will be depending on third-year tight end Mo-Alie Cox to start the season.

Burton has not played a full season since 2018 when he caught 54 balls for 569 yards and six touchdowns for the Chicago Bears.
