Burnett going under the knife, AGAIN!!!

Linebacker Kevin Burnett will return to Dallas to have arthroscopic surgery on his left knee, according to two sources. The surgery is scheduled for Friday.

Burnett's availability for the Sept. 7 season opener at Cleveland is in question. Normally, players miss three to four weeks to recover from a scope.

This will be at least Burnett's fifth surgery since coming to the Cowboys in 2005. He has had hip, ankle, shoulder and anterior cruciate ligament surgeries.

Burnett cant stay away from the operating room, atleast five surgeries since being drafted by the cowboys. A second round draft choice who was a converted safety in college to linebacker who finally started to show an ability to be a very good nickel linebacker but lost his chance to take over the starting role last year from Akin Ayodele because he just cant seem to shake the injury bug. He always seems to get nicked up at the absolute wrong time. Now, with him possibly missing the season opener and possiblty week two, Bobby carpenter will get his chance to show if he can be that nickel role player.
