Tim McManus on ESPN reports the Eagles have signed running back Jay Ajayi. This signing comes after the news that Darren Sproles is out for the season with a torn hip flexor muscle. Leading rusher Jordan Howard is questionable for Sunday against the Patriots (Tim McManus- ESPN Staff Writer)

Betting Impact:

Currently, the only fully healthy running backs on the Eagles roster are Miles Sanders and Boston Scott. If Howard cannot play Sunday, there is a good chance Jay Ajayi steps right in for some carries in his first game action. The Eagles are going to need a strong ground game on Sunday against the Patriots, since the Patriots second-ranked pass defense is going to be difficult to throw on. So many injuries to the Eagles skill position players, including receivers Alshon Jeffery and DeSean Jackson is making the under look very appealing.
