Eagles' Jay Ajayi: ACL surgery scheduled for Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ajayi is slated to undergo surgery on his torn ACL this Thursday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Ajayi emerged from Sunday's loss to the Vikings with no apparent injury, but further evaluation uncovered the season-ender, which he suffered during pass protection. Although the Eagles believe that he only suffered damage to his ACL, the upcoming procedure will confirm once and for all. On a positive note, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports Ajayi injured his left knee instead his chronically-bothersome right knee, which bodes better for his prospects as a free agent in March. With Ajayi out for the season, Wendell Smallwood is the healthiest member of the Eagles backfield, which hasn't utilized Darren Sproles the past four games due to a hamstring injury and Corey Clement the last two as a result of a quadriceps injury.

Eagles' Jay Ajayi: Placed on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ajayi (knee) has been placed on IR.

Per Adam Schefter of ESPN, Ajayi suffered a torn ACL in Week 5. His placement on IR opens up added opportunities for Corey Clement and Wendell Smallwood and could lead to the team adding more depth at running back.

Eagles' Jay Ajayi: Has game to forget versus Vikings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ajayi carried eight times for 29 yards and caught one pass for five yards during Sunday's 23-21 loss to the Vikings. He also lost a fumble.

Ajayi managed just just 3.6 yards per carry against a stout defensive front and hardly made an impact as a pass catcher. He contributed to the 17-point deficit his team faced early in the third quarter, fumbling in the red zone before Minnesota marched down the field for a score. Ajayi was coming off his best yardage output of the season, but his overall numbers through four appearances remain rather underwhelming. He'll look to get back on track Thursday against the Giants.

Eagles' Jay Ajayi: Tallies 81 yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ajayi ran for 70 yards on 15 carries and added 11 yards on three catches during Sunday's 26-23 loss to the Titans.

It was a solid return from the back injury that kept him out of Week 3. Ajayi failed to score for the first time this season, but partially made up for it with a season high in yardage. The Boise State product continues to be a pretty solid starting option given his share of carries -- 61.2 percent in the two full games in which he has appeared -- in an offense led by a MVP-caliber quarterback. He should get some opportunities to score against a down-in-the-dumps Vikings defense on Sunday.

Eagles' Jay Ajayi: Plans to play through back fracture
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ajayi, who was a full participant in Thursday's practice, revealed that he's dealing with a small fracture in his back, but intends to play through the issue, Zach Rosenblatt of reports. "I'm ready to roll," Ajayi said. "I feel like it's been a minute since I've played and it's only been one week. I'm chomping at the bit to get out there."

Ajayi indicated that he suffered the fracture in the first quarter of the Week 2 loss to the Buccaneers, though he was able to return to the contest and pick up a touchdown in the process. The Eagles ordered up rest for him the following week, but after a one-game hiatus, Ajayi feels prepared to reclaim a leading role out of the Philadelphia backfield. Ajayi did acknowledge, however, that playing through the back injury will require a high level of pain tolerance, a reality that may prompt the coaching staff to act cautiously with his usage in Week 4 against the Titans. While Ajayi still projects to pace the Philadelphia backfield in touches, a committee arrangement that includes Corey Clement (quadriceps), Wendell Smallwood and possibly Josh Adams will likely be in place.
