Week 8: DNP — Burke did not play against Penn State because of the undisclosed lower-body injury he had against Purdue.
Week 7: Burke was injured (a "lower-body injury") in the second half of Ohio State's 41-7 rout of Purdue. He did not return to action and his status for next week's big matchup with Penn State is in doubt. In 36 snaps against the Boilermakers, the star corner was in on five tackles. In coverage, he allowed five receptions in six targets for 65 yards, including a long of 35 yards. He did record one pass break-up. — JH
Week 6: In unbeaten Ohio State's 37-17 win over Maryland, Burke was targeted eight times in coverage. He had two pass break-ups and allowed five receptions for 46 yards, but one was for 24 yards — so the other four receptions he allowed totaled only 22 yards. The corner also was in on four tackles. — JH
Week 5: DNP — bye week

Week 2: Burke collected his first INT of 2023 against Youngstown State as the Buckeyes rolled to a 35-7 victory.

Week 1: In Ohio State's 23-3 season-opening win against Indiana, Burke was targeted five times and had two pass break-ups. He allowed one completion for 24 yards. The Buckeye corner did not get credited with a tackle on the day. — JH
