  • After third loss in five games Eagles again point to self-inflicted mistakes

Jay Ajayi #26 of the Philadelphia Eagles runs with the ball while defended by Kendrick Lewis #28 of the Tennessee Titans in the third quarter at Nissan Stadium on September 30, 2018 in Nashville, Tennessee.

Things have changed over 48 hours, however, because Jay Ajayi suffered a torn ACL in Sunday's loss to Minnesota. He also caught one pass for five yards.

Dating back to last season, the Eagles took the approach of riding the hot hand at running back, which worked wonders since players like Ajayi were unselfish over the decisions since the most important factor was the team was winning games.

McCoy has not had a significant workload in Buffalo this season, carrying the ball just 45 times for 170 yards with no touchdowns through four games. He starred for Boise State in college. But how much leverage would they have to get a deal done on favorable terms if they were come right out and say, "Yeah, we want him"?

We used the tweet from Eagles writer Jimmy Kempski because just after sending this he tweeted (and deleted) this move could give credence to rumors about Philadelphia being interested in a trade for Bell. It's unclear if he's now torn that same ACL again or whether it's his other knee.

Pittsburgh and Philadelphia will each battle in division showdowns in Week 6, with the Steelers (2-2-1) visiting the Bengals (4-1) and the Giants (1-4) hosting the Eagles (2-3). A lot will depend on the health of Darren Sproles and Wendell Smallwood, but both backs are undersized, so it would make sense for the team to bring in a physical, workhorse running back, as the offense is in need of a boost.
