The Eagles have traded for RB Jordan Howard, giving a conditional 6th-round pick that could become a 5th-rounder, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. So even the worst-case scenario here for Philadelphia would mean giving a pick in the round in which Chicago drafted Howard. The 24-year-old -- until November -- gives the Eagles a younger player to fulfill a role likely similar to what LeGarrette Blount and Jay Ajayi played the past couple of years. At the very least, Howard looks like Philly's best bet near the goal line. We'll see if the Eagles add anything else to the position in the NFL Draft. In Chicago, meanwhile, RB Mike Davis appears ready to take over Howard's vacated role and looks like an option late in the single-digit rounds of best-ball drafts.

Today's Browns-Bears game will be played in snowy conditions. (Here's video from Soldier Field about 2 hours before kickoff.) Temperatures will be in the mid-20s with winds of 8-12 mph. This figured to be a run-heavy game plan from both teams anyway, and the weather will only push them further in that direction.

Bears RB Jordan Howard (shoulder) was removed from the final Week 3 injury report. He got in a full practice on Friday after being limited on Wednesday and Thursday. It all makes him easier to trust in fantasy lineups, although we’d still consider him just a RB2 against a tough Steelers defense.

Bears RB Jordan Howard (shoulder) was limited on Thursday for the 2nd straight practice. It's looking like he'll play vs. Pittsburgh on Sunday -- but at far less than 100%. Tarik Cohen is the better fantasy bet in the Bears backfield both in PPR and non-PPR leagues.

Bears RB Jordan Howard had his right arm in a sling after Sunday's loss to the Bucs, according to insider Brad Biggs. Howard was limited all last week and listed as questionable for Week 2. He ended up carrying just 9 times for 7 yards. He was never announced with an injury on Sunday but didn't record a touch in the 2nd half. We'll look for an update on Monday and monitor his status throughout the upcoming week.

Injury Predictor

Since Howard entered the league in 2016, only 4 players have topped his 528 carries. Just 1 of those 3 -- and 1 of the next 7 behind him -- has averaged more yards per carry than Howard's 4.6. He has remained remarkably healthy, landing on just 1 injury report: Week 2 of 2017 for a shoulder issue. He did suffer a couple of injuries in college, though -- a sprained ankle that cost him 4 games and a sprained MCL that knocked him out for 2 more. A new coaching staff could alter Howard's workload share in 2018.
