“Coach Jackson has a great mind for the game of football, and I know he likes using the running backs, like he did with (Darren) McFadden in Oakland and the rest of that crew,” Burkhead told the team's website. “If he wants to use me in every way possible, I’m ready for it. I’m waiting for my opportunity, and if he calls my number I’ll be ready.”
Burkhead impressed in the 2013 preseason, gaining 130 yards on 28 carries (4.6 ypc) with one touchdown and catching five passes for 39 yards. He's currently fourth on the depth chart behind BenJarvus Green-Ellis, Giovani Bernard and Cedric Peerman.
Newman is the only player on the list who was on the injury report. He was doubtful due to a knee injury. The other six players are healthy scratches.
Newman was ruled out prior to Sunday. Both Gresham and Eifert will be out, leaving Alex Smith as the presumed starter at tight end.
