"This would be disappointing to have another week without him but we've done it before and if we're forced to do it again, we'll do it again."
Derrick Burgess has not played since injuring his right calf in the fourth quarter of Oakland's 23-20 overtime loss to Denver on Sept. 16. He has just one tackle and is without a sack after recording 27 sacks over the last two seasons.
Burgess did work out Wednesday but backed off after aggravating his injury.
"We were trying to go slow with him," Kiffin said. "Then he was starting to feel better and now we've had a setback the last 24 hours."
