Eagles sign Jay Ajayi for running back depth
Fri, Nov 15th 6:58pm EST
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.
