FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — He’s part bruiser, part dancer, but in New England’s training camp session on Thursday, Patriots running back Rex Burkhead proved he’s all hands.

The newcomer from the Cincinnati Bengals dominated the shortened training camp practice
and might actually have been noticed had it not been Tom Brady’s 40th birthday.

‘When you come out here, you’ve got to be ready to go,” said Burkhead, who spent his first four pro seasons in Cincinnati. “It’s a great environment, the expectations, the level of play. It brings out the best in all of us.”

With Mike Gillislee injured and Dion Lewis slowly easing into things, Burkhead is making the best of his opportunities, as he did again on Thursday.

“My body feels good. I’m just trying to take care of it every day. Every day I come out here, it’s feeling all right.”
