The Jets have released RB Josh Adams. It's not a surprising drop given Adams' total lack of summer buzz, but it takes 1 player with some NFL experience out of the team's crowded backfield. We wouldn't be shocked if Adams gets a shot elsewhere, but he's not a fantasy factor until further notice.

Andy Vasquez of NorthJersey.com projects RB Ty Johnson as a cut in his admittedly "far too early" 53-player roster projection. "[Tevin] Coleman will likely get the majority of the snaps, but there will be plenty of opportunities for [Michael] Carter and another young back," Vasquez writes. "[Josh] Adams, [La'Mical] Perine and Johnson will battle for the final two spots at this position." We're not particularly excited about any player in what figures to line up as a committee but will be tracking the competition through summer.

Jets RB La'Mical Perine has tested positive for COVID and will miss Sunday's finale vs. the Patriots. With RB Frank Gore (lung) also out, the Jets are down to RBs Ty Johnson and Josh Adams. Expect Johnson to lead a committee on the ground and handle most of the passing-down work, putting him in the RB3 mix.

Jets RB La'Mical Perine has been diagnosed with a high-ankle sprain. He figures to miss multiple weeks and can be dropped from redraft rosters. Frank Gore will remain New York's lead back, with Ty Johnson and likely practice-squad call-up Josh Adams backing him up.

Jets RB Lamical Perine (ankle) is active for today’s game against the 49ers. He joins Frank Gore and Josh Adams in the Jets’ Le’Veon Bell-less backfield. It’s a situation to avoid in fantasy lineups.

Jets RB Lamical Perine (ankle) is questionable for this weekend’s game against the 49ers after putting in limited practices on Thursday and Friday. The rookie’s status has taken on more importance with RB Le’Veon Bell (hamstring) on IR. Perine is worth monitoring, but this is a backfield to avoid in Week 2.

Jets HC Adam Gase said RB Le'Veon Bell (knee) won't practice on Wednesday and will be monitored beyond that. His knee injury reportedly isn't serious, but he shouldn't be considered a lock to play against the Giants this weekend. Bell's absence would leave the Jets' backfield to some type of committee with Ty Montgomery, Bilal Powell and possibly Josh Adams.

Eagles RB Josh Adams underwent shoulder surgery in January to repair a labrum injury, NJ.com's Mike Kaye reports. Adams is expected to be sidelined for 6 months, which would put him back on the field for the start of training camp. Still, the missed time is bad news for a guy who figures to be fighting for a roster spot after the Eagles added RB Jordan Howard.

Eagles RBs Josh Adams (hip) and Darren Sproles (hamstring) are active for tonight's game against the Redskins. Adams popped up on the injury report on Saturday, so he comes with a bit more risk tonight. Sproles is a fantasy flier in his 1st action since Week 1.

NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports that Eagles RB Josh Adams (hip) is "on track" to play against the Redskins on Monday night. The rookie was added to the injury report and limited in Saturday's practice. That obviously adds some risk to his Week 13 outlook. But if he's clearly your best option, it seems fine to keep him in fantasy lineups.

Eagles RB Josh Adams (hip) was added to the injury report on Saturday and limited in practice. He's listed as questionable for Monday night's game against the Redskins. We'll hopefully get an update on Adams' status on Sunday morning. If he can't play, Philly would be down to Corey Clement, Wendell Smallwood and Darren Sproles, who's expected back from his hamstring injury.

Eagles RB Darren Sproles (hamstring) said Friday that he plans to play against the Redskins on Monday night. We’ll see how Philly lists him on the final injury report Saturday afternoon. We wouldn’t use Sproles in fantasy lineups in his 1st action since the season opener, but it’ll be interesting to see how big a role he plays. RB Josh Adams remains a fine RB2 for Week 13.

Eagles RB Darren Sproles aggravated his hamstring injury in Wednesday's practice, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Philly was hoping to get Sproles back this week, but he's now out for Sunday night's game against the Cowboys and might miss significantly more time beyond that. Sproles is droppable outside of the deepest of PPR leagues. The Eagles will continue to go with Wendell Smallwood, Josh Adams and Corey Clement in the backfield.

Eagles RB Corey Clement (quad) is active for today’s game against the Colts. He should serve as Philly’s lead back, with Wendell Smallwood and Josh Adams also mixing in. We’re expecting 12-15 touches for Clement, making him a fine RB2 play.

Eagles RBs Jay Ajayi (back) and Darren Sproles (hamstring) did not practice on Wednesday. HC Doug Pederson labeled Ajayi "day to day" prior to practice, so it sounds like he has a shot to play against the Colts this weekend. We'll have another update tomorrow. Corey Clement, Wendell Smallwood and rookie Josh Adams and Philly's healthy RBs right now.

NBC Sports Philadelphia's Reuben Frank says Eagles OC Mike Groh "indicated" that RB Jay Ajayi will miss Sunday's game against the Colts. It's unclear exactly what Groh said, but the news is surprising considering Ajayi returned to last weekend's game after exiting early with a back issue. It's worth noting that Philly promoted rookie RB Josh Adams from the practice squad on Tuesday. We'll monitor Ajayi's practice participation this week.

Undrafted free agent RB Josh Adams signed with the Eagles. After sharing the backfield during his first 2 seasons at Notre Dame, Adams broke out as the Irish’s lead back this past year. He carried 206 times for 1,430 yards (6.9 YPC) and 9 scores. Adams averaged a whopping 5.2 yards after contact per attempt — easily the best among draft-eligible backs — and earned Pro Football Focus’ 2nd-best Elusive Rating. The 6’2, 213-pounder showed well in the pre-draft process, earning a 64th percentile SPARQ score. We didn’t love the tape, though. Adams is a straight-line, somewhat stiff runner who needs a wide alley to really get going. He also comes with a worrisome injury history that includes a torn ACL, MCL and meniscus in high school and nagging knee and ankle trouble throughout his time at Notre Dame. There’s some committee-back potential here, although going undrafted certainly puts a damper on his fantasy football outlook. Adams is a long shot for 2018 fantasy value in a crowded Eagles backfield. But note that RB Jay Ajayi is set to hit free agency next offseason.

The Eagles announced Saturday that they have agree to terms with RB Darren Sproles for 2018. Sproles missed the final 13 games last season after suffering a broken arm and torn ACL on the same play. He'll rejoin a backfield that now includes Jay Ajayi, Corey Clement, Wendell Smallwood and Donnell Pumphrey. The 2017 rookie, Pumphrey, looks like the worst bet to stick on the 2018 roster after a wholly disappointing debut. Smallwood's roster spot could be challenged as well, given that Philly also added RB Josh Adams as an undrafted free agent. Sproles' return also challenges the target availability for Clement. Overall, the Eagles backfield looks like a committee again, with Ajayi headed for primary ball-carrying duties, Sproles the best bet to lead the group in targets and the rest of the touches likely spread around liberally.
