Burkhead (hip) doesn't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Rams, Brooks Kubena of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Burkhead upgraded to full practice participation Friday after a pair of limited sessions, and he's expected to play as a result. With Mark Ingram having been traded to the Saints earlier in the week, Burkhead's expected to work in a rotational role alongside David Johnson and Phillip Lindsay in Houston's backfield.
