Patriots RB Rex Burkhead in concussion protocol

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

It's unclear when Burkhead suffered the concussion. He finished the game against the Texans, carrying 18 times for 64 yards.

Since the Patriots just placed Jeremy Hill on the injured reserve, they're now running 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.

First-round draft choice Sony Michel could help, although he didn't play in the season opener as he works his way back from a procedure to drain fluid from a knee in early August.


The Pats had ideal practice attendance for the second straight day.

Here's the complete injury report.

Michel said Wednesday that he's "not sure" if he will play on Sunday against the Jaguars. "Whatever coach's plan is, I don't know what his plan is, but my mindset is prepare as if I'm playing (in Week 2)".
