The Packers may have another hole in the middle of their revamped defense.

According to Rob Demovsky of, Packers linebacker Oren Burks is believed to have a torn pectoral muscle.

He’s having more tests to determine the severity of the injury, but if as believed, he’ll miss significant time.

Burks, last year’s third-round pick, is a starter in the middle of their base defense, which the Packers made a deliberate effort to refresh this offseason.

They spent heavily on free agent outside linebackers Za'Darius Smith and Preston Smith and safety Adrian Amos, and used a first-round pick on safety Darnell Savage.
