Howard inactive | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

Eagles RB Jordan Howard (stinger) is inactive for today’s game against the Patriots. RBs Miles Sanders, Boston Scott and Jay Ajayi are all active. Sanders is fully expected to serve as the lead back and is a nice RB2 vs. a New England defense that’s been gashed for 5.3 yards per carry by RBs over the past 5 weeks.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the Dolphins have agreed to a 2-year, $10 million deal with RB Jordan Howard. He instantly becomes the top RB on a team that only saw QB Ryan Fitzpatrick and RB Mark Walton crack 200 yards on the ground in 2019. We'd be surprised, though, if Miami is done making offseason changes to that backfield.

Eagles RB Jordan Howard (shoulder) is active for today’s game against the Giants. He’s expected to play sparingly behind Miles Sanders and potentially Boston Scott. Howard isn’t a viable Week 17 fantasy option.

Eagles RB Jordan Howard (shoulder) has been cleared for contact, HC Doug Pederson said Friday. He's expected back for this weekend's game against the Giants after missing the past 6 contests. Rookie RB Miles Sanders has been excellent in Howard's absence, though, so Howard figures to return to a minimal role.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Eagles RB Jordan Howard will return to action for Week 17. With that, the team is releasing RB Jay Ajayi. Miles Sanders has delivered big production as the feature back with Howard out. He'll likely lose some playing time and touches to Howard, but we'd also bet on the rookie continuing to lead Philly's backfield committee. Boston Scott also becomes a shakier bet for touches in Week 17.

Eagles RB Jordan Howard (shoulder) is inactive for today’s game against the Cowboys. Miles Sanders will continue to operate as the lead back, with Boston Scott in a change-of-pass role.
