Patriots RB Damien Harris (ankle, questionable) took limited practice reps again Friday and is questionable for Week 15. Harris looks to be on track to start against the Dolphins. If he can't play, Sony Michel would presumably serve as the lead back.

Patriots RB Damien Harris (ankle) was added to the injury report Thursday after taking limited practice reps. This is a midweek downgrade so it's something to monitor. If Harris is out, Sony Michel would likely handle most of the early down carries against the Dolphins.
Rex Burkhead was running well this season and looked to be in the discussion for the Patriots’ most effective back. However, that all came to an end Sunday when he suffered a season-ending knee injury that may end his time in New England.
Burkhead will be a 30-year-old unrestricted free agent and may not be in the plans for the Patriots moving forward. Harris, White and Michel, who didn't play in Week 11 but was activated, will lead the way at RB. It could continue to be a cloudy situation when it comes to the New England running backs especially if Michel is activated for Week 12.
