    Eagles' Josh Adams: Back practicing Tuesday

    Josh Adams (shoulder) participated in OTAs on Tuesday, Zach Berman of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.Adams underwent surgery on the labrum in his shoulder in January and was originally given a recovery timetable of six months. With the end of that timetable approaching, Adams is officially back on the practice field in some capacity. A return to full strength can't come soon enough for Adams, as he'll have to fight hard for a spot on the Philadelphia Eagles' 53-man roster with the team currently boasting a loaded backfield.

    Eagles' Josh Adams: Needs to compete for roster spot

    Josh Adams (shoulder) isn't a lock for the 53-man roster, Les Bowen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.Facing a six-month timeline in his recovery from January surgery, Adams could be stashed on the PUP list if the Philadelphia Eagles don't want to lose him but also don't have a job for him on the 53-man roster. The offseason additions of Jordan Howard and Miles Sanders leave the team with a crowded backfield, forcing Adams, Corey Clement (knee), Wendell Smallwood, Boston Scott and Donnel Pumphrey to compete for one or two spots. Clement is the safest bet to secure a job, while Scott and Pumphrey are the longshots. Adams lands somewhere in the middle -- along with Smallwood -- despite making five starts as an undrafted rookie last season.

    Eagles' Josh Adams: Recovering from shoulder surgery

    Josh Adams is facing a six-month recovery timeline from January surgery on the labrum in his shoulder, Mike Kaye of reports.The timeline rules Adams out for the offseason program and raises doubt about his availability for the start of training camp. He enjoyed a brief stretch as the Philadelphia Eagles' lead back after catching on as an undrafted rookie in 2018, but he likely will need to battle for a roster spot after the team traded for Jordan Howard earlier this offseason. On a more optimistic note, the shoulder injury might help explain why Adams dropped out of the game plan during the playoffs, though it probably had more to do with his struggles as a pass blocker and receiver. He took 71 carries for 286 yards (4.0 average) and three touchdowns during his five-game stint as the starter Weeks 11-15, but he caught just three of eight targets for 19 yards in that same stretch.

    Eagles' Josh Adams: Loses appeal after Howard trade

    The Philadelphia Eagles traded for Jordan Howard to join Josh Adams, Corey Clement (knee) and Wendell Smallwood in the backfield, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.The trade is particularly bad news for Adams, considering both he and Howard are big backs with subpar passing-game skills. The Notre Dame product caught on as an undrafted rookie in 2018 and eventually found his way to the lead backfield role, but he played just one snap in two playoff games and likely needs to battle for a roster spot in 2019.

    Eagles' Josh Adams: Could end up on roster bubble

    Josh Adams may need to compete for his roster spot in 2019, Eliot Shorr-Parks of 94 WIP Sports Radio reports.While the Philadelphia Eagles haven't made any additions to their backfield through the first few days of the league year, they still figure to search for upgrades in the free-agent bargain bin and the upcoming draft. Adams enjoyed a nice stretch as the team's lead runner late in his rookie season until he fell out of favor during the playoffs with just one touch in two games. He's subject to a wide range of outcomes in 2019, with potential to reprise the lead role or fall off the team entirely. Such is life for an undrafted running back who hasn't displayed any value in the passing game.

    Eagles' Josh Adams: Fails to see field in playoff loss

    Josh Adams didn't play a snap in Sunday's 20-14 playoff loss to the Saints.After spending much of the latter portion of the season as the primary running back, Adams' Week 16 fumble seemed to mark an abrupt end to that tenure. Still, he finished an impressive rookie season with 511 yards and three touchdowns on 120 carries. He added 58 yards while catching seven of 13 targets. The former Notre Dame standout will likely battle Wendell Smallwood for starting duties again in 2019 in addition to anyone else the team brings in via the draft or free agency.

    Eagles' Josh Adams: Non-factor in Sunday's game plan

    Offensive coordinator Mike Groh suggested Tuesday that game flow played a part in Josh Adams being limited to just one snap during the Philadelphia Eagles' wild-card victory over the Bears this past weekend, Zack Rosenblatt of The Newark Star-Ledger reports. "We had a package for him but over the course of the game it didn't go that way," Groh said.After carrying once for two yards on the Eagles' first possession of the game, Adams never saw the field again, with Darren Sproles (13 carries for 21 yards, two receptions for 14 yards) and Wendell Smallwood (eight carries for 20 yards, two receptions for 20 yards) instead picking up the brunt of the backfield work the rest of the way. Given that neither team led by more than five points during the contest and the Eagles notably gave the 5-foot-6, 190-pound Sproles back-to-back goal-line carries on their final possession, Groh's comments about the game flow being unfavorable for Adams wouldn't seem to hold much water. Since neither Sproles nor Smallwood was especially productive in his opportunities, it wouldn't be surprising if Adams regains prominence in the game plan during Sunday's divisional-round matchup with the Saints, though that's far from guaranteed. Predicting the distribution of touches out of the Philadelphia backfield for the rest of the postseason will likely be an exercise in futility.

    Eagles' Josh Adams: Stuck in three-way timeshare

    Josh Adams had 11 carries for 50 yards and three catches for 33 yards in Sunday's 24-0 win over Washington, playing 18 of 71 snaps (25 percent) on offense, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.Wendell Smallwood got the start and finished with 16 touches on 26 snaps, while Darren Sproles had nine touches on 27 snaps. Adams enjoyed a stretch as the unquestioned lead runner, but he'll enter the playoffs as part of a three-man committee, heading on the road to face an elite Chicago defense.

    Eagles' Josh Adams: Shut down in win

    Josh Adams rushed 11 times for 21 yards and lost a fumble in Sunday's 32-30 win over Houston. He was unable to catch his lone target.Adams had a one-yard touchdown called back by penalty in the first half that ended up becoming a scoring pass to Zach Ertz a handful of plays later. It got much worse for the rookie in the fourth quarter as his fumble gave the Texans the short field they needed to creep back into the game. On top of that, Darren Sproles saw just two fewer carries in the game and was far more effective to boot. While it is unlikely Sproles supplants Adams as the workhorse back for the Philadelphia Eagles, it will certainly be hard to trust either of them Week 17 at Washington.

    Eagles' Josh Adams: Deals with injury

    Josh Adams (back) rushed 15 times for 28 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 30-23 win over the Rams.Adams was forced to leave the contest on two separate occasions due to a back injury, and while he was able to return both times, it certainly cost him a few opportunities. The touchdown helped salvage what would have been an otherwise poor fantasy performance for the second consecutive week. Adams' recent struggles combined with Wendell Smallwood's (10 carries for 48 yards and two touchdowns) re-emergence and Darren Sproles' recent return (six touches Sunday) have the backfield situation in Philadelphia looking like a timeshare heading into Week 16's matchup with the Texans.
