Paul Corbeil, Burrows' agent, said Monday that he does not expect Burrows to be ready for training camp and suggested he could also miss the early part of the regular season.
"He may not be ready to play until sometime in October or November," Corbeil said.
[Canucks assistant general manager Laurence] Gilman said it's too early to say how long Burrows will be out, although he acknowledged the recovery period for labrum surgery is "definitely a period of months."
"Right-hander Mark Rogers, the Brewers' first-round draft pick in 2004, is making very slow progress on his throwing program in extended spring training. Rogers had shoulder surgery in January 2007 and has yet to return to action. Assistant general manager Gord Ash said Rogers' velocity is 'inching up' but there's no target date for Rogers to be assigned to a minor-league team. 'Something's got to happen in three weeks because there's no more extended program,' said Ash. 'We're trying everything to stay away from another trip to the doctor.'"
