Ajayi and Sproles day-to-day, both expected to practice this week
24 September 2018 Uncategorized
According to head coach Doug Pederson, both RB Jay Ajayi(back) and RB Darren Sproles(hamstring) are both listed as day-to-day.
Right now both running backs will be evaluated on Tuesday, but Coach Pederson expects them to practice and hopefully be ready for Sunday versus the Titans, barring any setbacks this week.
Although Wendell Smallwood, Corey Clement, and Josh Adams held down the fort, having both Jay Ajayi and Darren Sproles would greatly help out the running game and passing game for Carson Wentz. The “muscle” of the Eagles ground and pound attack has been dealing with a back injury he sustained in the game versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
While Pederson hopes Ajayi can give it a go, this situation should be one to closely monitor. If I was a betting man and had to choose which back that should be back this week for the Titans, I would bet on Darren Sproles making his return.
