Rex Burkhead, RB (HOU)

Shares top spot with Mack

Burkhead and Marlon Mack are listed as the top running backs on the unofficial depth chart entering Saturday's preseason opener against the Saints, Brooks Kubena of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Mack's name is listed first. When the Texans added the former Colt during the offseason, it was widely presumed Burkhead, who finished last season as Houston's lead back, would be replaced. That still may be the case, but perhaps the decision-makers want to see how Mack performs following an Achilles injury that wiped out his 2020 season given that he had only a minor role with Indianapolis in 2021.
