Clement rushed twice for 11 yards and caught both of his targets for four additional yards in Sunday's 48-7 loss to New Orleans. Clement saw his fewest carries all season as Josh Adams handled the bulk of the backfield work, which was already scant because the Eagles fell behind by three scores early in the second quarter. The Wisconsin product has not surpassed 22 yards in any of his last four games and likely isn't going to see an increase in chances with Adams playing well. If the 24-year-old has a silver lining, it's that Philadelphia heads into a favorable matchup for running backs against the Giants at home Week 12.
Clement played just 18 of 62 snaps (29 percent) on offense in Sunday's 27-20 loss to Dallas, taking five carries for 13 yards and catching one of two targets for a loss of five yards, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports. The snap split was pretty even between Clement, Wendell Smallwood (21) and Josh Adams (19), but only the latter had any success turning his playing time into rushing production. The undrafted Adams took seven carries for 47 yards, while Smallwood caught three passes for 30 yards and added two totes for four yards. Clement hasn't given the Eagles any reason to increase his role ahead of a Week 11 road matchup with the stingy New Orleans run defense.
Clement (illness) doesn't have a designation for Sunday's contest versus the Cowboys. Clement was absent from Thursday's session due to an illness, but the ailment subsided enough for him to practice in full to wrap up Week 10 prep. On the heels of the Eagles' bye week, it'll be interesting to see the breakdown of backfield reps. While Wendell Smallwood has acted as the lead running back for much of the season, Clement has been the preferred handcuff, when healthy. However, in the Eagles' last game Oct. 28, Clement was surpassed by Josh Adams in terms of snaps on offense -- 13 versus 18 -- behind Smallwood's 31 (of 62).
Clement (illness) took part in Friday's practice, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports. Clement sat out Thursday's session due to his ailment, but it appears he only needed the lone day off to feel better. It remains to be seen if he will be listed on the Eagles' final injury report of the week, but even if he is, he figures to be available for Sunday's matchup with the Cowboys.
Clement was listed as a non-participant in Thursday's practice due to an illness, Mike Kaye of NJ.com reports. The nature or severity of Clement's ailment isn't known, but the Eagles will hope that his condition improves enough to fit in some practice time Friday. Assuming the illness doesn't prevent him from playing Sunday against the Cowboys, Clement will likely work as the secondary option in the Eagles' backfield committee behind Wendell Smallwood. Smallwood has outpaced Clement in offensive snap count in each of the Eagles' past three contests.
