Drake, Burton placed on Injured Reserve
The Birmingham Thunderbolts placed wide receiver Kevin Drake and defensive end Kendrick Burton on injured reserve Friday, leaving the team with 54 active players prior to final roster cutdowns that will be announced Monday.

Nagging hamstring and quad problems over the last couple of weeks has hampered Drake. The former UAB standout was not able to dress out for the Thunderbolts final scrimmage of training camp Wednesday against Chicago.

Burton has been hampered by problems with his calf and lower leg and has been slowed the last week as well. The former Alabama star was also limited Wednesday against Chicago.

According to XFL rules, players placed on injured reserve are not eligible to return to the active roster for four weeks, so the earliest either Drake or Burton could be activated would be the Feb. 24 game at Orlando.
