New England Patriots

The New England Patriots released their latest injury report on Thursday, with one notable change. Running back Rex Burkhead, who did not practice on Wednesday due to a concussion, was upgraded to a limited participant.

Burkhead’s improved status bodes well for his chances of playing on Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars. It indicates that his concussion was mild in nature. It also indicates that the Patriots could continue to be patient with rookie running back Sony Michel, who was limited again on Thursday with a knee issue.

Here’s the full injury report for Thursday:
