Gainwell rushed 13 times for 27 yards in Sunday's 44-6 win over the Lions.
Gainwell looked like a prime candidate to lead the rushing attack with Miles Sanders (ankle) on IR, and the box score would appear to confirm that idea. The rookie had one more carry than Boston Scott and Jordan Howard each did. However, all but one of Gainwell's touches came in the fourth quarter with the Eagles up 38-0, and he wasn't nearly as effective with the rock as the other backs. While the Eagles have a nice matchup against a struggling Chargers run defense in Week 9, Gainwell seems to be third on the depth chart at the moment.
