Patriots RBs Rex Burkhead, Mike Gillislee out against Titans

Patriots RBs Rex Burkhead Mike Gillislee not expected to play vs. Titans

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Burkhead and fellow running back Mike Gillislee will both miss the team's playoff opener against the Tennessee Titans. Burkhead was trending towards playing after getting in limited practices this week but will likely miss the Divisional round against the Titans.

The New England Patriots' running-back-by-committee group will be without two members in Saturday's National Football League divisional round matchup with the Tennessee Titans. The 27-year-old has proven to be a major asset in both the running and passing game racking up 264 rushing yards with five touchdowns and hauling in 30 catches for 254 receiving yards with three touchdowns.

"After the [knee] injury, you never know what is going to happen", said Burkhead on Thursday. "So that's always in the back of your head. But when you get good news, it helps you to look forward to these games a little better". While Blount signed in Philadelphia, Gillislee joined the Pats after rushing for 577 yards and eight touchdowns with the Buffalo Bills in the 2016 season.

He's probably been our most consistent and solid player away from home. We've asked for pace and bounce so hopefully we will get that. Kohli urged his batsmen not get surprised by the bounce.

That depth leaves the Patriots particularly equipped to deal with injuries to their running backs.

In nine games this season, Gillislee has totaled 383 rushing yards off of 104 attempts, reaching the end zone five times on the ground.

The Patriots and Titans kick off Saturday night at 8:15 p.m.at Gillette Stadium.
