Rex Burkhead / Sony Michel, New England Patriots at Jacksonville Jaguars

This was going to be a touch matchup as is but neither running back is looking like they’re healthy enough to trust in Week 1. Burkhead is nursing a concussion and Michel still has knee issues. Limited in practice all week, both are listed as questionable for Sunday. Now that Jeremy Hill is out with a torn ACL, the Pats will shift to James White to get a lot of targets. As for Burkhead and Michel, this probably wasn’t the week to play them anyway, again the Jags, but right now, injuries are helping clear up a crowded backfield. – Ernie Estrella
