Jeff Howe reports that running back Rex Burkhead is dealing with a "slight tear" in his knee. The injury was described as minor and Howe stated Burkhead likely would have played in the team's second preseason game against the Eagles had it been a regular season game.
This is not a huge red flag right now, but serves as a reminder of Burkhead's knee issues from last season. With Sony Michel dealing with some knee issues of his own, we could see a higher early-season workload for James White. One of Mike Gillislee or Jeremy Hill could also be in the mix on early downs.
