The New England Patriots are likely getting reinforcements at running back in the form of Rex Burkhead.
Per reports, the former Cincinnati Bengal will most likely be active today.
Per @AdamSchefter: Patriots RB Rex Burkhead, who missed the past three games with a foot injury, is expected to be active today against the Browns.
Likely means rookie RB Damien Harris will be inactive.

Burkhead has dealt with injuries his entire career but that does not take away from what he adds to the team.
In a game that is expected to be a wet one in terms of weather, the Patriots are likely going to rely on the short passes to running backs and receivers.
Burkhead could be in line for a big day.
