Patriots' Rex Burkhead (knee) out for the rest of the season

New England Patriots running back Rex Burkhead's season is over after suffering a knee injury during Week 11's loss to the Houston Texans.

What It Means:

Burkhead was forced from Week 11's game against the Texans after injuring his knee and he will not return this season. Burkhead's absence could open up additional opportunities for James White in the passing game. New England's backfield for Week 12 could also see the return of Sony Michel, working alongside Damien Harris and White.

The Patriots are 1.5-point underdogs against the Cardinals in Week 12. Their implied team total of 24.0 points is the eighth-lowest team total on Sunday's main slate, according to numberFire's DFS Heat Map.
