The Patriots will be down a running back Monday night against the Jets.

Listen to your team news NOW.

Rex Burkhead (foot) has been downgraded to out, which means he will miss his third straight game.

This means the Patriots will have Sony Michel, James White, Brandon Bolden and potentially Damien Harris as running backs active in the game. Harris, the Patriots' third-round pick, has only been active for one game this season and hasn't played one offensive snap.

Burkhead has 24 carries for 112 yards and a touchdown this season.
