Rex Burkhead Could Play On Thursday

This article first appeared on

New England Patriots running back Rex Burkhead (ribs) remained “limited” in Tuesday’s practice. The back-to-back limited sessions give Burkhead a shot at returning for Thursday Night Football against the Bucs. He would likely slide back in to No. 3 duties behind Mike Gillislee and James White. While White seems to be the pass-catching back for New England, Burkhead could steal some work on early downs from Gillislee, who is averaging just 3.40 yards per carry.
