Only thing I can think off is a private issue that is not injury related. Problem with coming out and saying that is that then you have a zillion nosy reporters badgering anyone and with everyone with any chance of knowing whats wrong with Burns.

Personally, I wish they would just come out and tell us. From a business (and players privacy) perspective, I can see why they may not want to.
