Patriots Bringing RB Rex Burkhead to the Teams’ 53-Man Roster

The Patriots are activating Rex Burkhead to the 53-man roster, Mark Daniels of the Providence Journal reports. The running back has been on the injured reserve since Week 4, with a neck injury, but returned to practice weeks ago.

The team’s deadline to active him was later this week. ESPN was first with the news

Burkhead appeared in just three games this season, rushing for 86 yards and adding three catches for 31 yards. Burkhead started the season as the Patriots starting running back. He rushed for 64 yards on 18 carries in Week 1. He’ll add another dynamic layer to the Patriots running back depth with Sony Michel and James White. Both running backs are coming off career-best days in New Jersey.

According to a source, the Patriots are subsequently releasing offensive lineman Matt Tobin to make room on the 53-man roster for Burkhead.

Patriots TE Dwayne Allen Out a Few Weeks with Knee Injury

Another Patriots tight end has bit the dust for now, as tight end Dwayne Allen is expected to miss a few weeks with a knee injury.

The good news is that the injury, which took place Sunday in the teams’ loss in Tennessee, will not need surgery.

The injury took place when he collided with teammate Trent Brown on a completion to Josh Gordon in the third quarter of the loss.

Allen continued to try to play, but eventually he had to take himself out of the game. This season he’s played in 10 games, starting six for fellow TE Rob Gronkowski who didn’t play Sunday either.

This season Allen has three catches on four targets for 27 yards and has played 43.4 percent of offensive snaps.

Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski Out for Sunday’s Game Against Titans

Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski has been ruled out for the team’s Week 10 game against the Tennessee Titans according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com.

With the Patriots’ bye merely one week out, the team is taking the longterm approach with Gronk and hoping 27 days is enough to get the prolific playmaker back to full health for a late season run. Gronk has been struggling with ankle and back injuries and has not posted a 100-yard+ day or scored a touchdown since Week 1.
