The Athletic's Jeff Howe reports that Patriots RB Rex Burkhead has a "slight tear" in his knee. "But it’s been deemed a minor injury and something he’ll be able to play through," Howe adds. This remains a murky situation (as usual with the Patriots), and no other media members have reported on Burkhead's injury as of Friday morning. We'll continue to look for updates, but Burkhead obviously comes with plenty of risk in drafts right now. It's completely unclear what's torn in his knee, how effective he'll be playing through it and how long it'll hold up. New England, of course, is still without rookie RB Sony Michel, who had fluid drained from his knee a couple of weeks ago.
Patriots RB Rex Burkhead sat out Wednesday's practice because of a concussion, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Burkhead didn't leave Week 1 early, and Wednesday started the practice week. So we're assuming he developed symptoms sometime after the win over Houston. We'll see if Burkhead can pass through the league protocol in time for Sunday's game against the Jaguars.
