Burkhead, who is still in the concussion protocol, was a limited participant in Thursday's practice session.
Friday should bring some clarity to the situation for 4for4 favorite Burkhead. If he plays, he will be all-systems-go as an RB2 in a tough matchup against the Jaguars. If he doesn't, James White will get a nice bump in value.
With Rashaad Penny most likely starting the season on the PUP list and Chris Carson also coming off an injury, it appears Seattle felt the need to bring in some reinforcement to their backfield. Carlos Hyde posted 1,070 and six touchdowns with the Texans last year and will turn 30 years old at the start of the 2020 season.
