Eagles' Ryan Mathews: Remains starter when healthy
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Mathews' ankle stiffened during Sunday's game against the Steelers, explaining his light workload of just two carries, The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Mathews reportedly had the same ankle that limited him before the preseason rolled on during his 22-carry Week 1 performance against the Browns. That discomfort contributed toward his combined 11 carries over the past two weeks, clarifying his situation to owners. Fortunately, the Eagles now have a Week 4 bye, giving Mathews extra time for his ankle's condition to improve. While coach Doug Pederson maintains Mathews is the Eagles' starting running back when healthy, he also revealed the veteran will continue to be subject to a rotation that includes Darren Sproles, Wendell Smallwood and Kenjon Barner, thus adding a frustrating layer to Mathews' current injury situation.

Eagles' Ryan Mathews: Limited workload caused by ankle injury?
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Mathews finished Sunday's win over Pittsburgh with two carries for minus-five yards. According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, he's been working through an apparent ankle injury for the last two weeks.

Head coach Doug Pederson did not provide any information regarding Mathews' status after Sunday's game, but Wendell Smallwood piled up 17 carries for 79 yards and a touchdown, while Kenjon Barner carried eight times for 42 yards and a score of his own. Considering that Mathews carried the ball 22 times in Week 1, it's fair to connect the reduced workloads against the Bears (nine carries in Week 2) and Steelers to the ailment. Further details regarding the extent of the problem are expected to come Monday when Pederson addresses the media again. Depending on the severity of the injury, Mathews stands to benefit from the Eagles' Week 4 bye.

Eagles' Ryan Mathews: Two touchdowns in limited work
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Mathews rushed nine times for 32 yards and two touchdowns in Monday night's win over the Bears.

Mathews also caught his lone target for three yards Monday. After a whopping 22 carries to start the season, the veteran's total of nine in Week 2 is a bit curious, but considering teammate Darren Sproles managed just 40 yards from his 12 carries, neither player was very efficient on average. In fact, 30 of Mathews' 32 rushing yards came on one play. That being said, Mathews still proved effective when it mattered, scoring from three yards and one yard on his respective second-half touchdowns. Following a low-volume effort in Monday's pull-away win, Mathews will likely be needed more often in the Eagles' Week 3 game against the Steelers.

Eagles' Ryan Mathews: Impressively spearheads rushing attack in Week 1
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Mathews gained 77 yards and scored a touchdown on 22 carries but was not targeted in the passing game in Sunday's 29-10 victory over the Browns.

So far so good for Mathews in his role as the unquestioned workhorse back, as he ran hard and decisively throughout the day and escaped injury-free. He had to work for everything he got Sunday, as his game-long rush went for only seven yards. However, it was certainly an encouraging start for a revamped Eagles offense, as Mathews proved capable of serving as a perfect complement to rookie quarterback Carson Wentz and helped keep the Browns defense honest. He should be primed for abundant opportunity in 2016 provided his health remains intact.

Eagles' Ryan Mathews: 31 yards on three carries Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mathews carried three times for 31 yards in Saturday's preseason win over the Colts.

While Darren Sproles is on hand to contribute on passing downs and Kenjon Barner (who is currently listed as the Eagles' No. 3 RB) has had a good summer, Mathews is on track to head the Eagles' backfield out of the gate this season, something that should remain stable, provided the 28-year-old can avoid the injury bug. Draftee Wendell Smallwood is also in the mix, but he's been slowed by injuries and doesn't appear to represent much of a short-term threat to Mathews' workload.
