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.

Patriots RB Rex Burkhead has agreed to a restructured deal. He gets a $550,000 signing bonus but drops his base salary from $2.5 million to $1.05 million, according to ESPN's Field Yates.

He's worth considering at the tail end of best-ball drafts.
