Eagles’ Jay Ajayi out for season with torn left ACL

Do you think Ajayi going on IR changes the status of Bell in relations to a trade? The Eagles now have seven players on Injured Reserve and can only bring back two this season. That fact gave all the more intrigue to reports earlier this month that Bell was planning to report by Week 7, just over a week before that date, which could give the Eagles time to swing a deal.

It would be a homecoming of sorts for McCoy, who spent his first six seasons in the National Football League with Philadelphia.

Despite this development along with the restructuring of Pro Bowl defensive tackle Fletcher Cox's contract, the Eagles are not expected to pursue Pittsburgh Steelers star running back Le'Veon Bell, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.

Jay Ajayi's lasting memory from the 2018 season will be fumbling inside the five-yard line in a 23-21 loss to the Vikings.


Adding either Johnson or Bell would take a serious hit to the Eagles payroll this year and beyond.

Ajayi won't be able to help balance the Eagles' offense after Sunday's injury, leaving the task to running backs Corey Clement and Wendell Smallwood.

Eagles executive Howie Roseman loves to make a deal, highlighted by last year's trade with Miami for Ajayi after Darren Sproles tore his ACL. Of the 11 running backs with over 500 carries during that time, only Ezekiel Elliott and LeSean McCoy have run for a higher average.
