Eagles RB Miles Sanders suffered a left ankle injury in the 1st half of Sunday's game against the Giants and is officially questionable to return. The rookie's absence leaves Philly with RBs Boston Scott and Jordan Howard, who just returned from his shoulder injury.
Update: Sanders has been ruled out.
Eagles RB Jordan Howard (shoulder) is inactive for tonight's game against the Giants. It'll be his 3rd straight missed game with the injury. His absence leaves a workhorse role to Miles Sanders.
The Eagles don't expect RB Jordan Howard to play today against the Seahawks, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. He's officially questionable with the shoulder injury that kept him out last week. RB Miles Sanders becomes a low-end RB2 option with Howard on the shelf.
Eagles RB Jordan Howard (shoulder) still hasn't been cleared for contact as of Friday morning, HC Doug Pederson said. We'll see how Philly lists Howard on the final injury report this afternoon. His absence would again leave Miles Sanders as the lead back. He disappointed in the box score last week but played 85% of the offensive snaps.
Eagles HC Doug Pederson said Monday that RB Darren Sproles is "week to week" with a quad strain. Sproles has totaled just 6 carries and 2 targets over the past 3 weeks, so there's not much of a fantasy impact here. Jordan Howard and Miles Sanders will continue to share backfield duties in Philly.
Eagles GM Howie Roseman said during a Saturday press conference, "We've been looking for a runner like Miles for a few years," according to NBC Sports Philadelphia. It was obvious that Philly liked Sanders when the franchise selected him in Round 2. These words from Roseman, however, could point to the new guy having a bigger workload share ahead of him than other RBs in the Doug Pederson era. Pederson's Eagles have run with a true committee. Amid personnel shuffling and injuries, no RB has reached a 37% share of team carries in any of his 3 seasons. Philly just traded for Jordan Howard this offseason, of course, but gave up a mere 6th-round pick for a RB in the final year of his rookie contract. Josh Adams, Wendell Smallwood, Corey Clement and Darren Sproles remain from last year's squad, but only Adams has reached 100 carries under Pederson and none has topped 120. Adams is also coming off shoulder surgery. None of those players looks like a big threat to Sanders' touch outlook. We wouldn't bet on workhorse touches for the rookie, but Sanders might just be the best bet to lead the backfield in opportunities right away.
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 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.
Bears RB Jordan Howard suffered a minor eye injury in Friday's walkthrough and is not expected to play Saturday, NFL Network reports. We'll see if it lingers, but there seems no reason to worry about his fantasy outlook.
Bears RB Jordan Howard isn't even listed on the Week 11 injury report. HC John Fox claimed his RB suffered an ankle or Achilles injury in last week's loss to the Bucs, but that was either bad information or it was an extremely minor injury. Howard is good to go for Sunday's game against the Giants' 16th-ranked RB defense. He's ripped off 6.2 yards per carry over his last 2 games.
Bears RB Jordan Howard (ankle, Achilles?) was on the field for the start of Wednesday's practice. We'll find out later today whether he's listed as limited or a full participant. HC John Fox said after last weekend's loss that Howard suffered an ankle or Achilles injury. Howard said that he was fine. We haven't heard anything since. The fact that he was out there on Wednesday puts him on track to play against the Giants this weekend. We'll update his status again tomorrow.
Bears RB Jordan Howard suffered an ankle or Achilles injury during Sunday's loss to the Bucs, HC John Fox revealed afterward. We didn't notice or hear of an injury during the game. Howard's final carry came midway through the 4th quarter. We'll look for an update on his status tomorrow. Howard's absence would leave Chicago's backfield to Jeremy Langford and Ka'Deem Carey.
