Eagles RB Jay Ajayi is a healthy scratch for today's meaningless finale against the Cowboys. That leaves Philly's backfield to LeGarrette Blount, Corey Clement, Kenjon Barner and Wendell Smallwood. How touches will be divvied between those 4 is completely uncertain.

Eagles RB Jay Ajayi is ready for a bigger role coming out of the bye week, OC Frank Reich said. "He's able to handle everything that we give him at this point," Reich said. "When I look at our game plan for this week, I look at it and there's probably not a play on there that I wouldn't feel comfortable putting his number on." Ajayi played just 17 snaps in his Eagles debut -- 9 fewer than Corey Clement and 1 more than LeGarrette Blount. While those guys could both remain involved going forward, Ajayi is a good bet to lead this backfield in snaps and touches. He's a RB2 with upside for Sunday night's game against the Cowboys.

Eagles RB Jay Ajayi is active for today’s game against the Broncos. NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport passed along this morning that Ajayi will have “a small package of plays” after joining the team on Tuesday. He’s a desperation fantasy play vs. Denver’s top-ranked RB defense.

Eagles RB Jay Ajayi will be active for today's game against the Broncos, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, but will have a "small package of plays." No surprise there considering Ajayi has been with the team for less than a week. He's a desperation Week 9 fantasy play. Ajayi gets a Week 10 bye and should be ready for a full workload in Week 11.

Eagles HC Doug Pederson said Friday that he still hasn't decided if RB Jay Ajayi will play against the Broncos this weekend. He added that Ajayi will play a limited role if he does suit up. It's not a major surprise considering he's been with the team for less than a week. Throw in a matchup against Denver's top-ranked RB defense, and Ajayi shouldn't be in Week 9 fantasy lineups.

Injury Predictor

The Dolphins stud RB tore his right ACL in college (2011) — and has had some injury issues in the NFL causing him to miss 7 games in 2015, but none last year (he was a healthy Week 1 scratch). Miami has said they want to give Ajayi 350 carries in 2017 (consider that coach-speak hyperbole), the issue being whether or not he can handle a significant uptick in touches.
