Burkhead is officially questionable, and initially appeared to be trending towards playing after practicing on a limited basis this week.

Burkhead, who practiced in a limited fashion on Thursday, initially hurt his left knee in a December 17 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers and hasn't played since.

New England Patriots running backs Rex Burkhead and Mike Gillislee are expected to sit out Saturday's AFC divisional round playoff game against the visiting Tennessee Titans, multiple outlets reported.

When the New England Patriots take the field on Saturday night, the team will not have the services of two of their key contributors in the backfield.

Yet there has been little correlation between the results of recent Ashes series down under and the subsequent one-day series. Smith and Maxwell are reportedly not seeing eye to eye.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, neither Rex Burkhead nor Mike Gillislee is expected to play.

The 27-year-old, who rushed for 264 yards and five touchdowns this season, told reporters Thursday that he was "excited" about the prospect of returning against the Titans.

In nine games this season, Gillislee has totaled 383 rushing yards off of 104 attempts, reaching the end zone five times on the ground. Branch and Burkhead both missed games down the stretch and seemed optimistic to play, but apparently need more time. Prior to that, he was averaging 55 yards per game and.6 touchdowns per game.

The game should feature a big game from Dion Lewis and James White.
