their practice squad in light of Rex Burkhead’s concussion While the New England Patriots have one of the NFL’s deepest rosters Womens N'Keal Harry Jersey , the depth at two of their offensive skill positions is lighter than is ideal. While the revolving door at wide receiver has been well documented over the last six months, it now appears as if the running back spot joins it on the list of offensive question marks: Jeremy Hill tore his ACL on Sunday, and now Rex Burkhead is listed on the injury report as well.The second-year Patriot is dealing with a concussion and missed Wednesday’s practice because of it. His availability for the upcoming game against the Jacksonville Jaguars is yet to be determined, but with the team having only two healthy backs on its 53-man roster at the moment – James White and recent pickup Kenjon Barner; Sony Michel is still limited because of a knee injury – it apparently is looking to add some emergency depth.Enter Kenneth Farrow, who had been with the Patriots for one week before getting released during early-September’s cutdowns. New England brought him back yesterday to replace wide receiver Jace Billingsley on the practice squad and to have an additional layer of depth in the offensive backfield – one that serves only emergency purposes but is important to have nevertheless.After a productive career at Houston, Kenneth Farrow went undrafted in 2016. The then-San Diego Chargers picked him up as a free agent, and he was able to make the team as a reserve back. Injuries pushed Farrow up the depth chart and led to the versatile back appearing in 13 of the Chargers’ games during his rookie year. Before seeing his season end with a shoulder injury in December, he amassed 73 touches for 262 yards.The 5’9 N'Keal Harry Jersey Patriots , 220 lbs back was unable to bounce back from the injury in 2017 and spent all of it on injured reserve as well. In April, the Chargers elected to release Farrow and he remained on the open market until New England signed him on August 27. Before getting waived on cutdown day, the 25-year old appeared in one preseason contest and registered five rushes for 24 yards while playing 16 offensive snaps. DJ Chark's biggest contribution in three games with the Jacksonville Jaguars is a fumble recovery.The rookie receiver, a second-round draft pick from LSU, coughed up the football after his lone reception in Week 2 and had a huge drop in a home loss to Tennessee last week.It's far from the start Chark expected, especially after showing so much promise and potential in the preseason."When you hit the NFL doing so well, you expect it to just keep carrying on and you can lose sight that it's still the NFL," Chark said Wednesday. "I think that's what really happened for me. It was coming easy to me Youth N'Keal Harry Jersey , the feeling of the game, and then, boom, the regular season starts and everything changes a little bit."Chark hopes to get another chance to prove his worth when the Jaguars (2-1) host the New York Jets (1-2) on Sunday.Coach Doug Marrone said the plan is to "go right back to him" against the Jets, believing the best way to help Chark get over his mistakes is to put him in position to make positive plays."It has always been my philosophy (that) if someone dropped a football, we were trying to go to him the next play," Marrone said. "Really trying to do that, and then during the week asking that player to do all the extra to make sure that in his mind he is doing the proper work to get himself over it. I think it is a combination of those two things."The Jaguars drafted the 6-foot-4 Chark with the hope that he would develop into a big-time playmaker alongside Marqise Lee Color Rush N'Keal Harry Jersey , Keelan Cole and Dede Westbrook. With Lee out for the season, Chark went from a guy expected to sit back and learn to someone thrust into a reserve role — and on the field in key situations.He's failed to make much of an impact so far, aside from recovering Westbrook's fumble in the first series against New England. The Jaguars scored five plays later.He's done little since. His fumble at the end of a 13-yard reception in the third quarter against the Patriots proved to be meaningless in the 31-20 victory. But it briefly gave New England a glimmer of hope in a 24-3 game. Tom Brady hooked up with Chris Hogan for a touchdown on the ensuing drive to make it 24-10, but the Jaguars later answered to seal the win.Chark wasn't as fortunate against the Titans.He dropped a perfectly thrown pass on a second-and-10 play in the second quarter. Instead of a first down in the red zone, the Jaguars ended up kicking a field goal and tying the game at 3.Chark was clearly disappointed, sitting at his locker after the game with his head down."The learning curve is over with at this point," Chark said. "It's time to play. You can get down on yourself, which at times I did. But at the end of the day New England Patriots Jersey 2019 , I just had to take some time to reflect."I know the type of player that I am. The game isn't hard. I just can't overthink it. I have to do what I do best, make plays, feel comfortable and when I get out there on game day and do what I do in practice."Chark caught 66 passes for 1,351 yards and six touchdowns in three seasons at LSU. He was the co-MVP at the Senior Bowl and a receiver the Jaguars fell in love with because of his size and speed.He stood out during organized team activities and in training camp, occasionally beating a talented secondary for touchdowns.The Jaguars are confident that will happen in games, maybe even this week."I know he's upset and that speaks to his character and the kind of guy and football player that he is and how good he wants to be and how good he can be," quarterback Blake Bortles said. "I've got all the confidence in the world in him and I'm not going to shy away from throwing him the ball because he dropped one."
