Burns was sent-off for his shot on Kennedy, becoming only the second player this season to be given his marching orders after Dragons forward Matt Prior was sent from the field in Round 9.
Burns is facing up to 12 weeks for the high shot on Kennedy and four weeks for the tackle on Masoe.
If the Panthers take the early plea to both charges, the five-eighth would be ruled out for a total of 12 matches.
Regardless he isn't playing again this season.
