The Patriots downgraded starting right tackle Marcus Cannon and reserve cornerback Keion Crossen, ruling both out for Sunday’s game. Cannon, who has a calf injury, and Crossen, who has a hamstring injury, did not make the trip.
The Patriots listed all four players — Crossen, Cannon, Burkhead and Michel — as questionable in their Friday status report.
Michel was inactive last week as was Crossen.
With Jeremy Hill out for the season with a torn ACL, the Patriots could use Michel and Burkhead. Burkhead led the Patriots in rushing last week against Houston with 18 carries for 64 yards.
