Chris Polk trying to establish himself
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Eagles coach Chip Kelly likes what he sees from running back Chris Polk, reports ESPN. Polk is expected to be the primary backup for LeSean McCoy this season.

"He did [produce] and he's really had a great offseason," Kelly said. "He worked extremely hard rehabbing his shoulders but he was one of our key special-teams players for us and starting to you look at from probably the Detroit game on, he had a couple really big runs in that game and starting to develop as a back and just trying to figure it out again where he fits in that piece. Obviously we have a talented one in LeSean, and then when you add [Darren] Sproles to the mix, where does Chris fit into it? But I think in terms of what has he done in the offseason, I think he's really put himself in the picture."

Polk vows to do anything he can to contribute. 

"We're all just going out there and putting our best foot forward, and adding another great player [like Sproles] to our running back room, that just making everyone better," Polk said. "I feel like I can be a great factor. We'll see how things play out. We have Sproles, LeSean, myself, a couple of new guys. The only thing that I can do is control what I can control, and that's my effort, attitude and what I put on tape. If I do what I know I’m capable of, then I know I’ll be playing."

Report: Chip Kelly prefers Chris Polk to Bryce Brown
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Eagles coach Chip Kelly prefers Chris Polk's running style to Bryce Brown's and sees Polk "as a better complement" to running back LeSean McCoy, reports the Philadelphia Inquirer. Polk is more of a north-south runner, and Kelly likes that he "wastes so few yards."

If Brown is traded, Polk would be in for a major increase in touches.
