Burkhead (hip) was a full participant in practice Thursday.

The full workout puts Burkhead on track to enter this weekend's game in Miami without an injury designation. Burkhead took on his largest workload of the season in the Texans' Week 8 loss to the Rams, playing a backfield-leading 48 percent of the offensive snaps while carrying four times for 21 yards and a touchdown and catching three of four targets for 27 yards. Given that all seven of Burkhead's touches came after the Rams raced out to 38-0 lead after three quarters, he can't be reliably counted on to see as sizable of a snap share against the 1-7 Dolphins this weekend.
