The Patriots' depth at running back is already being tested.
Rex Burkhead is in concussion protocol, according to Mike Reiss of ESPN, and may not play on Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars. With Jeremy Hill now out for the season with a torn ACL and uncertainty regarding Sony Michel's playing status, this news really couldn't have come at a worse time.
Burkhead did not practice yesterday, and it's not clear at what point he suffered the injury.
