Before the start of the game against the dolphins, the Patriots lost two generals.On Wednesday, the team officially announced that it will put RB Rex Burkhead and LB Ja’Whaun Bentley on the injury reserve list.
Berkhead suffered a neck injury during a loss to the Lions on Sunday, and Bentley’s injury was not announced. Whether the two players will return to wait for eight weeks will be announced. The NFL rules allow up to two players to return to the official list from the injury reserve list.
Berkhead is the team's most rushing player. He rushed the ball 24 times and advanced 86 yards. First-round picks Sony Michel and James White will get more opportunities.
Rookie Bentley's performance is also commendable. He has completed 14 cuddles and 1 interception.
To fill the gap, the Patriots signed running back Kenjon Barner and defensive end John Simon.
