Rex Burkhead hoping to get his chance


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/2/2014) Bengals running back Rex Burkhead played in only one game as a rookie. The former Nebraska star is hoping for more opportunities under new coordinator Hue Jackson, a running game guru.

I’m waiting for my opportunity, and if he calls my number I’ll be ready.”
