Jordan Howard is formally out for the Eagles Sunday. Jay Ajayi will certainly see his very first game action given that tearing his ACL in 2018.
It was extensively rumored that Howard would not play Sunday as a result of an irritating shoulder injury, practically proclaimed a “stinger” by Doug Pederson, and had been listed questionable on the team’s last injury report.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Howard will certainly not play versus the Patriots. Ajayi, a gamer the Eagles simply signed off the street Friday, is expected to play in his absence. He’ll split time in the backfield with novice Miles Sanders.
