The forward star previously had serious conversations with medical specialists and his Rabbitohs team about the prospect of running away from rugby league, the Daily telegram reported.
The rugby league player from West Yorkshire, England, is one of the largest and most tradable stars of the NRL.
Last year he signed a $ 3.6 million three-year contract that runs until 2022 and it is unclear how much of it he will receive.
He suffered the devastating injury during a round five game against the New Zealand warriors in April.
It teased him the rest of the season, but Souths hoped he could get through, despite the fear that he might never play again.
Burgess will, at least on the pitch, be best remembered for sticking out a broken cheekbone to lead the Rabbitohs to victory in the NRL Grand Final 2014.
Last week, Burgess was banned from leaving his hiding place within a kilometer of the land of his estranged wife Phoebe after an alleged quarrel with her father.
Burgess was visiting his two children on the estate of the southern highlands of the NSW last Saturday when he reportedly had a fight with Mitchell Hooke.
Earlier this month, Burgess was banned from going within a kilometer of his alienated wife Phoebe's hiding place after an alleged fight with her father
Allegedly, Mr. Hooke asked the NRL superstar to leave the family's three-acre Glenquarry farm – which Burgess did – but the police were called around 5 p.m.
Officers filed a provisional arrest arrested violence (AVO) against Burgess, and court documents revealed that Burgess can no longer get close to the house.
Burgess may also not come within a kilometer of another place where the retired mining director lives or works.
He was also affected by standard AVO circumstances that prevented him from stalking, intimidating, or attacking Phoebe & # 39; s father.
An NSW Police spokeswoman said the police are investigating and & # 39; there are no reports of injured & # 39 ;.
The glamor couple divorced themselves for the second time only weeks ago
Burgess must appear before the court of Moss Vale on November 6, where a magistrate can confirm the AVO or reject it in its entirety.
There is no suggestion that Burgess did anything wrong by visiting the property.
Phoebe was not at the farm during Sam's weekend visit. The glamor couple divorced themselves for the second time only weeks ago.
Last Sunday it was claimed that Phoebe is permanently moving to the well-to-do Southern Highlands and is leaving the Maroubra mansion behind.
A source would have told The Daily Telegraph: & # 39; It makes sense because the Phoebe support network is in Bowral. She grew up there, her father and mother are there and her sister Jemima & # 39 ;.
The insider went on to say that because the city is close to Sydney, Phoebe and Sam could continue to co-educate their two children.
