Coach Doug Pederson said Monday that he plans to give Adams more touches each week, Zack Rosenblatt of reports.

Pederson's comment shouldn't be taken literally after Adams had 22 carries for 84 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 25-22 win over the Giants. Considering there isn't much more room for workload growth, the real takeaway here is that Pederson intends to keep Adams in the lead role throughout December, starting with a Monday night game against Washington in Week 13. The Redskins struggled to slow Dallas' Ezekiel Elliott on Thanksgiving Day, but still rank ninth in rushing yards allowed per game (100.3) and 14th in yards allowed per carry (4.3) for the season. While the matchup isn't ideal in terms of the opposing defense, Adams will have a good chance to pile up carries with the Eagles comfortably favored to win in a primetime home game against Colt McCoy and company.
