Eagles RBs Jay Ajayi, Darren Sproles both considered day-to-day

The Philadelphia Eagles are heading into Week 3 action against the Indianapolis Colts, but the team may be a bit short-handed in the backfield with two factors dealing with injuries. According to Mike Garafolo of The NFL Network, head coach Doug Pederson has voiced on Wednesday that both running backs Jay Ajayi and Darren Sproles […] The post Eagles RBs Jay Ajayi, Darren Sproles both considered day-to-day appeared first on ClutchPoints.

Eagles Injury Report: Updates on Jay Ajayi, Alshon Jeffery, Darren Sproles, more

Updates on Philadelphia’s injury situation. The Philadelphia Eagles released their first official injury report on Wednesday in advance of their Week 3 game against the Indianapolis Colts. To no surprise, Carson Wentz was a full participant in practice for the first time this season. He’ll resume his role as the team’s starting quarterback on Sunday. That’s the good news. Elsewhere, the Eagles are dealing with a number of injury issues. Running backs Jay Ajayi and Darren Sproles did not practice. Doug Pederson described both of them as “day-to-day” but noted that Sproles will...

Eagles reportedly promote Josh Adams from practice squad to active roster

Hey, that’s not a wide receiver. The Philadelphia Eagles are signing practice squad running back Josh Adams to their 53-man roster, according to a report from NFL insider Mike Garafolo. This news is a bit unexpected considering the Eagles desperately need help at wide receiver. But apparently they need help at running back as well. Adams being promoted to the roster doesn’t seem like a great sign for the availability of Jay Ajayi and/or Darren Sproles this week. Ajayi suffered a back injury early in the Eagles’ Week 2 game against the Buccaneers. The Jay Train later returned but...

Eagles vs. Buccaneers Inactives

Who’s in and who’s out. The Philadelphia Eagles have officially announced the inactives list for their Week 2 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The following players will NOT play: Carson Wentz, Alshon Jeffery, Darren Sproles, Chance Warmack, Matt Pryor, Jordan Mailata, and Josh Sweat. It is worth noting that Shelton Gibson, who was ruled questionable on Friday, is not on that list. He will be active despite the fact he missed Thursday’s practice with a quad injury. Gibson only played four offensive snaps against Atlanta but it’s good to have him active since the Eagles...

Eagles vs. Bucs Final Injury Report: Darren Sproles among three players ruled out

One last update before Sunday’s game. The Philadelphia Eagles released their third and final official injury report on Friday in advance of their Week 2 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The following players have been ruled out for Sunday’s contest: Carson Wentz and Alshon Jeffery, and Darren Sproles. Doug Pederson already announced Nick Foles as Philadelphia’s starting quarterback against the Bucs. There’s some reason to believe Wentz might be able to play in Week 3. Nate Sudfeld will be the backup to Foles in the meantime. As for Jeffery, he’s been limited to individual...

Eagles Injury Report: No practice for Darren Sproles and Shelton Gibson

Updates on Philadelphia’s injury situation. The Philadelphia Eagles released their second official injury report on Thursday in advance of their Week 2 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. After being limited on Wednesday, both Shelton Gibson and Darren Sproles did not practice at all on Thursday. That doesn’t seem like a good sign for their chances of playing on Sunday. It also seems to explain why the Eagles re-signed Kamar Aiken and worked out some free agent players with return ability earlier this week. Gibson is the team’s primary kick returner and Sproles is the primary punt...

Pats Pulpit

Kenjon Barner’s recent punt-return history should lend Patriots a hand

Kenjon Barner returned three punts through his first four NFL campaigns. Then came 2017. Kenjon Barner returned three punts through his first four NFL seasons. But there’s reason to think the New England Patriots agreed to terms with the veteran running back on Tuesday because of the work he fielded deep during his fifth. Barner re-signed with the Philadelphia Eagles late last September after ageless all-purpose threat Darren Sproles landed on injured reserve with a broken arm and torn ACL. He would finish his 2017 campaign having returned 28 punts for 250 yards – and with a Super Bowl...

Eagles running back Darren Sproles now No. 6 in all-purpose yards in NFL history

With last night’s performance, the running back topped Steve Smith Sr. and Marshall Faulk’s records. We didn’t get to see him during the preseason, but Doug Pederson has never wavered that 14-year veteran running back Darren Sproles was fully healthy and ready to put in work for what is expected to be his last season in the NFL. He got right back to business in Thursday night’s season opener against the Falcons, taking a heavy-dose of reps on offense and special teams. And I’ll be the first to admit I thought, given his experience and injury history, the team would limit him to...

Eagles Preseason Preview: 3 personnel and scheme notes to watch against the Browns

Let’s fill some roster spots! I have not watched Hard Knocks at all and am very concerned that I will be left out of many a niche reference tonight. I did, however, see the offensive line coach tummy thing — that tickled me. 1) What matters for RBs, because I don’t freakin’ know The Eagles RB room is just beat up and battered at this point. Every name besides Darren Sproles (the old guy coming off of major surgery!) has seen some time lost to injury this camp — some with greater stints than others. Tonight, we should expect to see Wendell Smallwood and Matt Jones, hope to see...
