ICYMI: Rex Burkhead Shares Recovery Update As He Continues Knee Injury RehabJay Biggerstaff - USA TODAY Sports

After a stellar start to 2020, free agent running back Rex Burkhead’s season came to an abrupt conclusion after he blew out his knee in Week 11 against the Houston Texans.

During the New England Patriots 27-20 loss in Texas, Burkhead took a direct hit to his right knee, tearing his ACL and ending his season.

In 10 games, Burkhead had 67 carries for 274 rushing yards and three touchdowns. As a receiver, Burkhead added 92 more yards and three touchdowns.

This past Thursday, Burkhead shared an update on his health with a workout video over Instagram

“Knee progressing everyday” Burkhead wrote alongside two video clips.

Entering his ninth NFL season, the soon to be 31-year old Burkhead hasn’t generated much interest so far in free agency.

Presently, the Patriots are carrying five running backs on the active roster, but given Burkhead’s likely low salary and familiarity with the system, a return to New England remains a possibility, especially for a team that values depth.

    It would be a shame if after all the hard work that goes into rehabilitating that type of injury goes in vain if no team is interested enough to offer him a contract! Hang in there Rex, many PATS fans including myself are rooting for you.
