Adams was largely victimized by Dallas dominating possession, as the Eagles logged just 48 plays to the host's 93. As a result, Philadelphia ran just 14 total times on the day, with Adams picking up half of those carries while Darren Sproles assumed most of the work on passing downs. Considering Adams earned at least 20 totes in the previous two weeks and ran effectively on his limited touches Sunday, it's fair to expect the undrafted rookie's workload to recover in Week 15 against the Rams. He'll draw a favorable matchup with a Los Angeles run defense that has ceded an NFL-worst 5.1 yards per carry for the season.
Adams (shoulder) practiced in full Thursday.
Considering his increase in workload the last three games, it's no surprise Adams has been included on Eagles injury reports the last two weeks. During the aforementioned stretch, he's racked up 241 yards from scrimmage and two rushing TDs on 52 touches. Expect Adams to maintain his stranglehold on RB work ahead of Corey Clement and Darren Sproles moving forward.
Adams was limited in Wednesday's practice due to a shoulder injury.
Adams has earned 20-plus carries in back-to-back games, but the undrafted rookie also has landed on the Eagles' ensuing injury reports. Last week, he was a late addition due to a hip issue, while he's tending to a new concern this time around. Assuming he gets past the shoulder injury, he'll aim to uphold his standard from consecutive starts against NFC East foes in which he averaged 4.0 yards per carry and scored one touchdown.
Adams rushed 20 times for 85 yards in Monday night's 28-13 win over the Redskins.
Adams was largely held in check during the first half, but chipped away at Washington's run defense while Philadelphia nursed a lead in the second half. In the end, he averaged over 4.0 yards per carry for a sixth straight game and garnered at least 20 carries for the second week in a row. While Darren Sproles finally returned from injury to score a 14-yard rushing touchdown in the second quarter, his four carries for 22 yards did little to impinge on Adams' workload, keeping his value steady heading into Week 14's matchup versus the Cowboys.
Adams (hip) is listed as active Monday versus the Redskins, Eliot Shorr-Parks of Sports Radio 94 WIP Philadelphia reports.
Tacked onto the injury report Saturday with a hip issue that limited him in practice, Adams got through a pregame warmup unscathed and will remain the Eagles' No. 1 option out of the backfield. His primary contender for carries is Corey Clement, but veteran Darren Sproles (hamstring) could receive a decent number of touches in his first game action since Week 1. No matter how the snaps break down among the trio, Adams appears to be the best bet to take advantage of a Washington defense that has allowed 5.0 YPC to running backs over the last four contests.
