Eagles' Jay Ajayi: Expected to see more involvement in 2018
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eagles executive vice president Howie Roseman said Wednesday that he expects Ajayi to get "more involved" in the team's offensive game plans during the upcoming season, Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post reports.

After a breakout 2016 campaign with the Dolphins, Ajayi failed to live up to expectations last season for those that invested an early-round pick in the running back in fantasy drafts. Ajayi averaged just 3.4 yards per carry and scored no touchdowns in seven games with Miami before being dealt to Philadelphia on Oct. 31. While he saw more limited snap counts with the Eagles as part of a backfield committee with LeGarrette Blount and Corey Clement, Ajayi displayed the big-play ability that made him an attractive commodity entering the year, cranking out 5.8 yards per carry on 70 totes in his final seven regular-season contests. With a full offseason to familiarize himself with the Eagles' offensive schemes and Blount likely headed elsewhere in free agency, Ajayi seems primed for a larger workload in 2018, though the 24-year-old's chronic knee issues may make head coach Doug Pederson reluctant to use Ajayi as the true three-down back many envisioned he would become.

Eagles' Jay Ajayi: Full practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ajayi (ankle) practiced in full Wednesday.

Last week, Ajayi followed a full session Wednesday with limited participation Thursday and Friday. However, the Eagles didn't attach a status to the running back, indicating he would have been active if a game was played this past Sunday. With a full practice to kick off this week, Ajayi seems set to lead the backfield Sunday against the Patriots, as he has in the first two playoff games. In those outings, he earned the most offensive snaps (60) and touches (39) among Philly running backs.

Eagles' Jay Ajayi: Limited again Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ajayi (ankle) was a limited practice participant Friday.

In nine contests as an Eagle (including playoffs), Ajayi has averaged 77.3 yards from scrimmage per game and scored a pair of touchdowns. Based on Friday's injury report, if the Eagles were playing this Sunday, Ajayi would be free of an injury designation. The running back is thus firmly on track to be available when his team faces the Patriots on Feb. 4 in Super Bowl LII.

Eagles' Jay Ajayi: Limited Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ajayi (ankle) was limited in practice Thursday.

In the Eagles' first session related to the Super Bowl, Ajayi is tending to an ankle injury. There wasn't much worry when he was estimated as a full participant on Wednesday's injury report, but reduced reps one day later doesn't imply the running back will be compromised once Feb. 4 rolls around. Considering there's a week and a half before the big game, Ajayi is a good bet to rid himself of injury in the meantime.

Eagles' Jay Ajayi: Practices in full Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ajayi (knee) was a full practice participant Tuesday.

Per Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer, the session included full pads, so it would appear Ajayi has overcome the soreness in his right knee that sprung up during the Eagles' first-round bye. During his stay in Philly, Ajayi has avoided the injury report, and while he didn't do so this week, his ability to handle every rep Tuesday sets himself up nicely for Saturday's divisional-round matchup with the Falcons, who conceded the 13th-most rushing yards during the regular season.
