09/18/18RBJay AjayiBackQUESTIONABLEEagles head coach Doug Pederson said he views Ajayi (back) as day-to-day ahead of the team's Week 3 matchup with the Colts, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

Pederson labeled fellow injured running back Darren Sproles (hamstring) the same way, though the coach added that Sproles' recovery will be "a little longer" than Ajayi's. Those comments seemingly paint a rosier outlook for Ajayi's availability in Week 3, but it's expected that the 25-year-old's involvement in practices will be limited over the next few days while he manages the injury. In light of the shaky health of Ajayi and Sproles, the Eagles fortified their backfield depth by promoting Josh Adams from the practice squad Tuesday. If neither Ajayi nor Sproles suit up Sunday, Adams could have a role in the Eagles' game plan, though it's likely that Corey Clement would serve as the team's top option at running back.

09/17/18WRAlshon JefferyShoulderQUESTIONABLEEagles head coach Doug Pederson said Wednesday that he expects Jeffery to take a step forward with his rehab this week, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports. "[Jeffery's] a lot like Carson [Wentz] was a couple weeks ago, being able to get back into the mix and do some 11-on-11 stuff. This will be a big week in that regard," Pederson said.

Jeffery officially returned to practice last week, taking the field all three days for what registered as limited practices. Pederson's expectation that Jeffery will advance to 11-on-11 drills at some point this week could result in the wideout logging what constitutes a full practice, but it still appears more likely than not that Jeffery is unavailable for a third straight game. With Mike Wallace (lower leg) joining Mack Hollins (groin) on injured reserve this week and Jeffery likely still on the mend, Nelson Agholor projects as the Eagles' clear-cut No. 1 receiver for Sunday's home date with the Colts.

09/17/18RBDarren SprolesHamstringQUESTIONABLECoach Doug Pederson said Sproles (hamstring) will be sidelined "a little bit longer," Zack Rosenblatt of reports.

Like many of the skill-position groups in Philadelphia, the running back room is plagued by injuries at the moment. Sproles sat out Week 2 due to a hamstring injury and doesn't seem to be trending toward an appearance Week 3. During Sunday's loss in Tampa Bay, starter Jay Ajayi missed some time due to a back issue but still finished the contest. However, Pederson termed Ajayi "day-to-day" Wednesday, meaning his activity level will be one to monitor this week. If Sproles happens to be inactive again Sunday versus the Colts, Corey Clement would be in line for a significant workload yet again. Meanwhile, Wendell Smallwood is waiting in the wings if Ajayi is limited or out as well.
