Veteran running back Rex Burkhead left the game in the third quarter with a neck injury and never returned.
Burkhead had just seven snaps according to the story. Michel got a bulk of the work but wasn't totally impressive against the Lions. The Pats will continue to play short at WR and RB in Week 4, especially if Burkhead is unable to recover from this injury. Michel is certainly worth picking up if he's out there on your wire.
