Patriots lose running back Rex Burkhead to knee injury

Patriots lose running back Rex Burkhead to knee injury”

New England Patriots running back Rex Burkhead injured his knee, and was quickly ruled out during the team's Week 15 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Burkhead exited after carrying the ball four times for 12 yards and a touchdown. He also made a single reception for five yards. It sounds like Burkhead and the Patriots have caught another break this Sunday.

The running back, who signed a one-year contract with the Patriots over the offseason, has 64 carries for 264 yards with five rushing touchdowns on the season.

As a receiver, Burkhead is having his best season yet, already with career highs in receptions (30), receiving yards (254) and touchdowns (three). Burkhead should be okay to return for a playoff run for the 11-3 Patriots. In the meantime, Dion Lewis and James White will handle backfield duties sans Burkhead.
