Eagles RB Jay Ajayi suffered an ACL tear in Sunday’s loss to the Vikings and will miss the rest of the season. That takes the carry leader out of a backfield that has started slowly. Healthy returns by Corey Clement and Darren Sproles wold help absorb touches, but Wendell Smallwood has als taken advantage of recent injuries to others to look like a player who will continue to deserve work. We’ll see hit the touches get distributed as the remaining group get healthy. The one thing we’ve been able to count on so far has been HC Doug Pederson spreading the work around. Clement, Sproles and Smallwood are all worth owning to varying degrees right now
Eagles RB Jay Ajayi (back) is not listed on the final Week 4 injury report. He’s set to play through a “small fracture” in his back. Consider him a risk/reward RB2 for Sunday's game against the Titans.
Eagles RB Jay Ajayi told the media Thursday that he has a "small fracture" in his back. He's set to play through it, though, explaining that "it's just a matter of pain tolerance." It's obviously an uneasy situation and adds risk to Ajayi's weekly fantasy outlook. We'll be keeping a close eye on him in this weekend's game against the Titans. He's a risky RB2 for that one.
Eagles RB Jay Ajayi (back) put in a full practice on Thursday. That puts him on track to return for this weekend's game against the Titans. Ajayi will be a fine RB2 for that one. Tennessee is allowing 4.7 yards per carry to RBs.
Eagles RB Jay Ajayi (back) remained sidelined for Wednesday's practice. We'll continue to monitor his status, but fantasy owners shouldn't be banking on him playing this weekend. RB Darren Sproles (hamstring) also missed practice on Wednesday. With those guys sidelined last week, RB Corey Clement played 55% of the offensive snaps and handled 19 touches. RB Wendell Smallwood played 35% of the snaps and totaled 13 touches.
Eagles RBs Jay Ajayi (back) and Darren Sproles (hamstring) have been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Colts. Neither guy practiced all week, so consider both questionable for Week 4.
Eagles RBs Jay Ajayi (back) and Darren Sproles (hamstring) missed practice again on Thursday. Both guys are now looking extremely iffy for this weekend's game against the Colts. That'd leave Philly with RBs Corey Clement, Wendell Smallwood and Josh Adams. Clement would be in the RB2 mix in that case. Check back tomorrow for another update on the situation.
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.
Eagles QB Carson Wentz (knee) has been medically cleared and will start Sunday's game against the Colts, the team announced Monday. Philly has been extremely cautious bringing Wentz back from last December's torn ACL and LCL in his left knee. He's reportedly been throwing well in practice, but his mobility inside and out of the pocket remains a question. Wentz will be a risk/reward Week 3 fantasy play in a plus matchup. His return is excellent news for the rest of the Eagles' skill-position guys. QB Nick Foles totaled 451 yards with just 1 TD and 1 INT over the first 2 weeks.
Eagles RB Jay Ajayi suffered a back injury on the 1st drive of Sunday's game in Tampa Bay. He's officially questionable to return. With RB Darren Sproles (hamstring) inactive, Philly is down to RBs Corey Clement and Wendell Smallwood
UPDATE: Ajayi returned in the 2nd half.
