Recent Game Summaries

2018 Week 13 vs MIN (7 / 20 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 21 / 0 rec)

This was Burkhead's first game action in several weeks, and he was integrated slowly with a handful of touches. The important thing is that he looked healthy, but this is clearly Sony Michel and James White's backfield as of now, with Burkhead in as a change of pace/designed play back.

2018 Week 3 vs DET (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 3 / 2 / 26 / 0 rec)

Seeing limited play time due to the Sony Michel experiment, Burkhead didn't see a single carry, was missed on a touchdown throw from Brady, and exited the game late with a neck injury. Though Michel didn't look good, Burkhead's role remains tenuous at best.

2018 Week 2 vs JAX (6 / 22 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Whether it was due to concussion, performance, or potential, Rex Burkhead was not involved in the game at all, seeing the bulk of his work when the game was out of hand in the 4th quarter. One game does not make a trend, but he was only lined up wide once as well, and this is something worth monitoring. It wouldn't surprise if Rex Burkhead and Sony Michel rotated evenly and were used liberally in formations, but Michel was a high draft pick, so time will tell. Burkhead did nothing of note against the Jags, as the Pats run game was dominated by the Jags defense.

2018 Week 1 vs HOU (18 / 64 / 0 rush, 3 / 1 / 5 / 0 rec)

Burkhead saw more snaps than expected due to an injury to Jeremy Hill, but wasn't able to produce much despite seeing 19 touches. His best run was a 12 yard scamper between a hole, and his day would have been much bigger if Tom Brady hadn't overthrown him for a TD on a pass route where he easily beat a linebacker. He also committed a fumble, but luckily the Pats recovered. Big days will be ahead if Hill's injury is serious.
