  • Patriots' Rex Burkhead: Used sparingly in loss
    By RotoWire Staff

    Burkhead (concussion) rushed six times for 22 yards and wasn't targeted in the passing game during Sunday's 31-20 loss to the Jaguars. New England is notoriously inconsistent with its running back usage, but things didn't look good for Burkhead in Sony Michel's (knee) debut. Michel got a team-high 10 carries and was targeted twice while James White caught seven of eight targets and added four carries. If Michel handles most of the rushing duties moving forward and White serves as the receiving back, that doesn't leave much of a role for Burkhead.

  • Patriots' Rex Burkhead: Suits up Sunday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Burkhead (concussion) is listed as active Sunday against the Jaguars. Meanwhile, Sony Michel (knee) will make his season debut Sunday, with James White on hand to work in a change-of-pace/pass-catching role. While Michel's availability figures to cut into his workload, Burkhead still seems likely to head the team's Week 2 backfield committee.

  • Patriots' Rex Burkhead: Likely to play Sunday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Burkhead (concussion) is "likely to play" Sunday against the Jaguars, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Per the report, Burkhead still needs to get through pre-game warmups without any setbacks, but it looks like he'll give it a go Sunday. Meanwhile, Sony Michel (knee) is expected to make his season debut Sunday, and in a scenario where both backs play, he's a threat to cut into Burkhead's Week 2 workload.

  • Patriots' Rex Burkhead: Travels with team
    By RotoWire Staff

    Burkhead (concussion), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Jaguars, made the trip with the team to Jacksonville, Jeff Howe of The Athletic reports. Burkhead was able to practice in a limited fashion both Thursday and Friday, but still has yet to receive clearance from the NFL's concussion protocol. The fact that he made the trip to Jacksonville suggests the team expects Burkhead to receive clearance ahead of the Week 2 game, which would be a boon to a backfield that could be without Sony Michel (knee) for a second straight week and lost Jeremy Hill to a season-ending knee injury in the season opener. If able to play, Burkhead would likely serve as the Patriots' lead runner in the contest, though the division of the backfield snaps would be murkier if Michel were also to play. James White also lingers as the Patriots' top pass-catching back.

  • Burkhead (concussion) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Jaguars. After missing practice Wednesday, Burkhead worked in a limited fashion both Thursday and Friday. Meanwhile, Sony Michel (knee) is also listed as questionable after another week of limited sessions. That currently leaves James White and newcomer Kenjon Barner as the team's healthiest backfield options. If cleared in advance of Sunday's contest, Burkhead would likely head the Patriots' Week 2 ground attack, but chances are his status (as well as Michel's) won't be confirmed until shortly before Sunday's 4:25 PM ET kickoff.
