Patriots injury report: Rex Burkhead (concussion) upgraded to limited

It's unknown when Burkhead suffered the concussion, but the tailback absorbed a wicked helmet-to-helmet hit from Texans safety Kareem Jackson late in the first half of Sunday's 27-20 win.

Patriots running back Rex Burkhead appeared to be limited at the beginning of the team's practice today.

Burkhead's value to the Patriots extends beyond rushing the football (he had a team-high 64 yards on 18 carries in the opener), as he is also a capable pass-catcher.

Another defender who was strongly linked with a move to Old Trafford was Germany and Bayern Munich defender Jerome Boateng . The hit in stature hasn't gone unnoticed either, with Real Madrid and Manchester United showing an interest in him.

With fellow running back Jeremy Hill placed on injured reserve Monday with a torn right ACL, the Patriots are thin at the position. James White is the top "passing back", while Kenjon Barner - who was signed on Tuesday - is the only other running back on the roster with a clean bill of health.

Rookie running back Sony Michel participated in positional drills. Farrow spent a year ago on the injured reserve, but in 2016 he ran for 192 yards on 60 carries with the then San Diego Chargers. Marcus Cannon (calf) and Nate Ebner (knee) were listed on the injury report, but full participants.
