New England Patriots running back Rex Burkhead is in the concussion protocol and did not participate in practice Wednesday, putting his status for Sunday's road game against the Jacksonville Jaguars in question.

Burkhead was listed as a non-participant in yesterday's session due to a concussion.

With fellow running back Jeremy Hill placed on injured reserve Monday with a torn right ACL, the Patriots are thin at the position.

James White and the newly signed Kenjon Barner are the lone healthy backs on the 53-man roster. He finished the game against the Texans, carrying 18 times for 64 yards.

The Pats had ideal practice attendance for the second straight day.

The team did add running back Kenneth Farrow to the practice squad Wednesday, releasing wide receiver Jace Billingsley.

Jacob Hollister (hamstring) was also limited on Wednesday. He spoke with reporters yesterday, granting his first interview since suffering the injury.
