New England Patriots RB Rex Burkhead (foot) on Saturday, Oct. 5, was downgraded out for the team's Week 5 game at Washington.

New England Patriots RB Rex Burkhead (foot) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 2.

Footballguys view: Burkhead was barely involved last week against the Bills. With James White back and Burkhead being banged up, he only caught one pass in Week 4. We'll see if he's going to be used a bit more against Washington in Week 5.

New England Patriots RB Rex Burkhead (foot) is expected to play in Week 4's game against the Buffalo Bills, according to a league source.

Footballguys view: Burkhead is still likely to play too small a role to matter for fantasy leagues today, but he could affect the viability of James White and Sony Michel as Week 4 starts.

New England Patriots RB Rex Burkhead (foot) is traveling with the team for their Week 4 game but is still listed as questionable.

Footballguys view: Burkhead is traveling with the team but the speculation around the team is that Sony Michel will see more work. That could mean that Burkhead is down for this game against the Bills or perhaps really limited against a tough defense.

Footballguys view: If Burkhead can't go, James White becomes a great PPR play on Sunday, although there are no strong signs that he'll miss the game.

  Patriots | Rex Burkhead listed as limited    Thu Sep 26, 04:18 PM

New England Patriots RB Rex Burkhead (foot) was limited during practice Thursday, Sept. 26.

Footballguys view: Burkhead hasn't stayed healthy for long stretches so it's a big concerning to see him on the injury report. James White and Damien Harris could gain value if this becomes a bigger issue for Burkhead. He's a what the heck flex vs Buffalo with Sony Michel struggling, but there's more risk now.

  Patriots | Rex Burkhead plays well in Week 3    Sun Sep 22, 05:51 PM

New England Patriots RB Rex Burkhead rushed for 47 yards and one touchdown on 11 carries against the New York Jets in Week 3. He also caught six passes for 22 yards during the game.

Footballguys view: Burkhead looked a lot crisper than Sony Michel and filled James White's passing game role because White left for the birth of his child. White should be back next week and Burkhead is just bench depth with weekly what the heck flex value. He should still be held as a good talent in a productive backfield.

New England Patriots RB Rex Burkhead (undisclosed) returned to practice Monday, Aug. 12, after missing time last week.

Footballguys view: Burkhead is trying to work his way into the mix in the Patriots backfield once again. Sony Michel is the lead back and rookie Damien Harris is his biggest threat for touches.

  Patriots | Sony Michel on the sidelines again    Mon Jul 29, 02:16 AM

New England Patriots RB Sony Michel (knee) was back on the sidelined for team drills on Sunday, July 28, so RBs Brandon Bolden, Rex Burkhead and James White divvied up the first-team carries.

Footballguys view: Like Todd Gurley, Michel is 24 and a bit young for this kind of treatment, so it casts a shadow on his outlook, but if he makes it through camp healthy, it could be a sign that he will be a value at a depressed ADP. Damien Harris isn't getting first-team reps yet, but he's still the back poised to benefit the most if Michel misses time.

  Patriots | Lead back role up for grabs?    Mon Jun 3, 04:34 PM

New England Patriots RBs Sony Michel and Damien Harris are competing for lead-back duties with James White locked into his role and Rex Burkhead likely viewed as a jack-of-all-trades, change-of-pace runner, according to Kevin Duffy of the Boston Herald.

Footballguys view: The Patriots always have a collection of backs and there is one they usually lean on more than others. That back in 2019 is likely going to be Sony Michel. We'll see how this battle shakes out in training camp. We love Harris as a dynasty prospect but Michel is more explosive and has a year of pro experience under his belt.

  Patriots | Rex Burkhead eyeing better health    Tue May 7, 01:00 PM

New England Patriots RB Rex Burkhead is trying a new approach this offseason after missing 14 of 32 regular-season games the past two seasons. 'You learn from your experiences from the past, and also from some of the older guys,' Burkhead said Tuesday, May 7. 'Like Matthew Slater, he's been in it for awhile now and how he takes care of his body. There are things. I remember my rookie year, I think I took one week off and then I was right back in it, hard core lifting right after the season. You learn that is not the best way to go about it. Your body takes time to recover, mentally, physically and there's some little things you can pick up too, whether that is yoga or pilates, things like that just to make sure your body is in the best shape possible. When you make it far you really have to stay on top of that, especially here, you understand your body is your temple and it's your line of work.'

Footballguys view: Burkhead has talent and certainly is a player the Patriots can use effectively as a runner or receiving threat. If healthy, Burkhead has a chance to be a touchdown vulture working in a RBBC with Sony Michel and James White. We'll see if this new regiment keeps him on the right track with his health.

New England Patriots RBs Sony Michel, James White and Rex Burkhead combined for 47 rushing attempts/targets and 254 yards from scrimmage in the divisional-round playoff win over the Los Angeles Chargers.

New England Patriots RB Rex Burkhead (neck) was activated from the Reserve/Injured list Monday, Nov. 26.

Footballguys view: Neck injuries are tricky to come back from but the Patriots must feel good about his progress. Burkhead's return could take some snaps/touches away from Sony Michel and James White. He can play in Week 13 at home against the Vikings.
