Rex Burkhead makes 'nice progress' at Patriots' practice on Thursday
New England Patriots running back Rex Burkhead (knee) is listed as questionable for the Divisional Round against the Tennessee Titans, but made "nice progress" in Thursday's practice.
Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald writes that, according to a source, Burkhead "made some nice progress today during practice and has a legitimate chance to play" on Saturday. After missing the final two weeks of the regular season, Burkhead may be limited if active but injuries to Mike Gillislee (knee) and James White (ankle) could force the issue.
numberFire's models project Burkhead to score 10.9 FanDuel points, at a cost of $6,400, in the Divisional Round, with 55.4 offensive yards and .66 touchdowns on 10.1 touches (2.7 catches).
