Rex Burkhead, RB (HOU)

Returning against Indy

Burkhead (hip) is active Week 6 against the Colts.

While Burkhead was able to overcome a missed practice Thursday followed by a limited practice Friday, expectations should be kept in check, as the veteran is essentially fourth on the depth chart. The 31-year-old has seen more snaps on special teams than on offense in each of the past two weeks, and he only played three offensive snaps in his last game action Week 4 against Buffalo.
