The Patriots on Wednesday agreed to a 3-year deal to keep RB Rex Burkhead on the roster, NFL Network reports. Burkhead finished top-20 in points per game among RBs in PPR scoring last season. Dion Lewis has left town, and Mike Gillislee looks like less of a factor than anyone expected heading into 2017. We'll see if New England adds any other significant backfield pieces, but Burkhead looks like a solid RB2 in fantasy football drafts at the moment.

Patriots RB Rex Burkhead (knee) is active for today's game against the Jaguars. He still has yet to put in a full practice since returning from his knee sprain, but New England clearly has a role in mind for him in the AFC Championship game. RB Mike Gillislee (knee) is inactive after entering the day questionable. Having Burkhead back in the lineup threatens the goal-line role for RB Dion Lewis, but Lewis still figures to easily lead the backfield in touches.

With all the hubbub about QB Tom Brady’s injury, we haven’t heard anything about Burkhead’s status. NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport did report back on Monday that Burkhead is expected to play. We’ll find out for sure around 1:30 pm ET on Sunday.

Patriots RB Rex Burkhead (knee) remained limited on Wednesday. He was limited all last week before missing the Titans game. Burkhead is reportedly expected back for Sunday's AFC Championship, but it'd be nice to see him get in a full workout on Thursday or Friday.

Patriots RB Rex Burkhead (knee) is expected back for Sunday's AFC Championship game against the Jaguars, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Burkhead was limited in practice last week and was close to playing on Saturday night vs. Tennessee, Rapoport adds. New England got 181 total yards and 2 TDs from RBs Dion Lewis and James White in the win over the Titans but will certainly welcome back Burkhead's versatile skill set.
