Shark Bites

Eagles RB Darren Sproles (hamstring) is out for Sunday’s game against the Panthers. HC Doug Pederson said Friday that Sproles is on track to practice next week. Wendell Smallwood and Corey Clement will share the backfield again this weekend.

The Eagles added CB Jalen Mills to the injury report Thursday, when a hamstring issue limited his participation. HC Doug Pederson told reporters Friday morning that he expects Mills to be fine to face Carolina on Sunday, though. That should keep Mills at his usual level of IDP consideration. His hamstring could add upside to Carolina outside WRs Devin Funchess and Torrey Smith, though.

Eagles HC Doug Pederson says "optimism is high" that RB Darren Sproles returns to practice next week, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. Sproles hasn't played since Week 1 because of a hamstring injury. He'll return to a Jay Ajayi-less backfield led by Corey Clement and Wendell Smallwood. We'd bet on Sproles reclaiming a significant role. We'll see how things progress in Week 8, leading up to a visit to Jacksonville. The Eagles then get their bye in Week 9.

Eagles LT Jason Peters suffered a torn biceps in Thursday night's win over the Giants. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Peters is expected to return this season but that he might miss a week or 2. Any missed time for Peters presents a potential challenge for Philly's pass protection and run game. Week 7 brings the Panthers to town, followed by a Week 8 clash with the Jaguars in London.

Eagles RB Darren Sproles (hamstring) is out for Thursday night's game against the Giants. He remained sidelined in practice all week, although HC Doug Pederson said Wednesday that Sproles is getting close to a return. Corey Clement and Wendell Smallwood figure to share the majority of Philly's backfield work on Thursday, with rookie Josh Adams potentially mixing in.

Eagles RB Corey Clement (quad) was listed as a full participant in Monday's practice, putting him on track to return for Thursday night's game against the Giants. It's especially notable with RB Jay Ajayi out for the year. Clement was running clearly ahead of RB Wendell Smallwood over the season's first 3 weeks. We'll see what the split looks like on Thursday. Consider both Clement and Smallwood risk/reward RB3s for Week 6. RB Darren Sproles (hamstring) remained sidelined on Monday.

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 RBs Corey Clement (quad) is active for today’s game against the Vikings. It’s a surprise after he didn’t practice all week. Clement and Wendell Smallwood will change the pace behind Jay Ajayi.

The Eagles have ruled DE Derek Barnett (shoulder) out for Sunday's game against the Vikings. That leaves Philly without 1 of its top-performing pass rushers, but the defense deploys a consistent rotation. We're not big on either defense in the Eagles-Vikings matchup anyway.

Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery (chest) isn’t listed on the final Week 5 injury report. He put in full practices on Thursday and Friday after sitting out Wednesday. The chest issue isn’t a concern, but a matchup with Vikings CB Xavier Rhodes makes Jeffery more of a WR3 this week.

Eagles RBs Corey Clement (quad) and Darren Sproles (hamstring) both missed practice all week. Sproles has already been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Vikings. Clement is listed as questionable, but we'd be surprised if he played. He shouldn't be in your Week 5 fantasy plans.

Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery (chest) returned to practice on Thursday. It's confirmation that his Wednesday absence was precautionary. Jeffery figures to see a bunch of Vikings CB Xavier Rhodes this weekend, making him more of a WR3.

Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery was held out of Wednesday's practice with a chest injury. Insider Jeff McLane hears that Jeffery "just needed a rest day and should be good to go for Sunday." We'll see if he gets back on the practice field tomorrow.

Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery (shoulder, illness) is active for today’s game against the Titans. He’s a risk/reward fantasy play in his 1st action since the Super Bowl.

Eagles RB Corey Clement (quad) is inactive for today’s game against the Titans. That leaves Wendell Smallwood as Philly’s #2 RB behind Jay Ajayi, who’s playing through a small fracture in his back.

Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery will play against the Titans today, according to ESPN's Chris Mortensen. Jeffery was cleared for contact and practiced on Wednesday, but he missed Thursday and Friday's workouts with an illness. We're expecting him to be at least a bit limited in his 1st action since the Super Bowl, making Jeffery a risky Week 4 fantasy play.

Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery is a game-time decision for Week 4, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. It sounds like it's actually the illness that kept Jeffery out of practice on Thursday and Friday that has him iffy for today's game vs. the Titans. His shoulder was cleared for contact early in the week. We'll find out Jeffery's official status by noon ET, but he's best off on fantasy benches this week.

Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery (shoulder, illness) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game against the Titans. He's been cleared for contact and put in a full practice on Wednesday, but he was sidelined Thursday and Friday with an illness. We'll find out Jeffery's status by noon ET on Sunday. If active, he figures to be on a snap count in his 1st action of the season.

Eagles RB Darren Sproles (hamstring) is out for Sunday’s game against the Titans. He didn’t practice all week and has no timetable for return. RB Corey Clement (quad) is listed as questionable after being added to the injury report on Thursday. If he can’t play this weekend, Wendell Smallwood and Josh Adams would serve as Philly’s #2 and #3 RBs.

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.
