Philadelphia Eagles running back Jay Ajayi is being placed on injured reserve after tearing his ACL Black Reggie White Jerseys , according to an official announcement from the team. Ajayi’s season is over.This new is, uh, unexpected.We already knew that Ajayi was playing through a fractured bone in his back. But there was no indication Ajayi had suffered an ACL tear.This development could very well mean the end of Ajayi’s Eagles career. The 25-year-old is scheduled to be a free agent this offseason.In the meantime, the Eagles are down to just Darren Sproles, Corey Clement, Wendell Smallwood, and Josh Adams at running back on their 53-man roster. Sproles hasn’t played since Week 1 while Clement has missed the last two weeks with a quad injury. Smallwood has stepped up but it’s clear he has limitations. Adams is an undrafted rookie free agent who began the season on the practice squad.The Le’Veon Bell trade rumors suddenly make a lot more sense now with Ajayi done for the season. Reports indicate the Eagles “have been mulling the potential of a Le’Veon Bell trade for a while now.” Even if it’s not trading for Bell, the Eagles could really use some help in the backfield. We’ll see what Howie Roseman can come up with.In a corresponding roster move with placing Ajayi on IR, the Eagles claimed free agent defensive tackle T.Y. McGill off waivers. Philadelphia unsuccessfully tried to claim him earlier this year.The McGill addition might not bode well the injury status for veteran defender Haloti Ngata, who had to sit out with a calf issue in Week 5.UPDATE: More info on when the injury occurred. Impossible to question Ajayi’s toughness....NOTABLE EAGLES PLAYERS ON INJURED RESERVEWR Mack Hollins - Eligible to be activated after Week 8TE Richard Rodgers - Eligible to be activated after Week 8WR Mike Wallace - Eligible to be activated after Week 10S Rodney McLeod - Eligible to be activated after Week 11RB Jay Ajayi - Eligible to be activated after Week 13 Get to know Philly’s new running back." />Skip to main contentclockmenumore-arrownoyesHorizontal - WhiteBleeding Green Nationa Philadelphia Eagles communityLog In or Sign UpLog InSign UpFanpostsFanshotsEaglesOddsAboutMastheadCommunity GuidelinesStubHubMoreAll 322 blogs on Horizontal - WhiteFanposts Fanshots Eagles StoriesScheduleRosterStatsYahoo Eagles NewsYahoo Eagles Team PageYahoo Eagles ReportYahoo Eagles Depth ChartYahoo Eagles TransactionsYahoo Eagles PhotosOdds About Masthead Community Guidelines StubHub ?Filed under:NFL DraftEagles 2019 NFL DraftEagles Draft Profile: Miles Sanders is “a true all-purpose back”New Reggie White Jerseys 2019 ,92commentsGet to know Philly’s new running back.EDTJared Slanina of Black Shoe Diaries contributed to this post.ShareTweetShareShareEagles Draft Profile: Miles Sanders is “a true all-purpose back”Photo by Christian Petersen/Getty ImagesThe Philadelphia Eagles selected Penn State running back Miles Sanders with the No. 53 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Howie Roseman really talked up the team’s selection by saying that Sanders was a “staff favorite, a coaching staff favorite, a personnel staff favorite, all of us, front office favorite.”In order to learn more about Sanders, I reached out to SB Nation’s Penn State blog: Black Shoe Diaries. Nittany Lions writer Jared Slanina was kind enough to answer my questions.1) Can you sum up what Sanders’ college career was like?Sanders had the talent to contribute immediately as a true freshman in 2016 as a reserve running back and the primary kick returner. However, his touches were limited since he was behind Saquon Barkley, who almost never came off the field. The same can be said for the 2017 season. He stepped into the starting role this past fall, and actually had more rushing yards than Barkley did as a junior. He also contributed 24 receptions, proving himself as a complete back. 2) What are his strengths?Sanders is a true all-purpose back. He has the power to pick up tough yardage between the tackles Black Mike Quick Jerseys , the speed to bounce it outside for a big gain, and the hands to be a factor in the passing game. He also has an excellent combination of balance and vision, making him a threat to turn a short gain into a long one of the defender isn’t careful about wrapping him up. He’ll regularly pick up additional yards by keeping his legs churning. 3) What are his weaknesses?Sanders has a broad skill-set, so his only glaring weakness is his tendency to put the ball on the ground. It wasn’t a regular problem, but his fumbles seemed to almost always come at inopportune time. Last season, he fumbled right before halftime as Penn State was leading Ohio State 13-0. The Buckeyes would capitalize with a very short scoring drive, and ultimately come back in the fourth quarter to squeak out a one-point victory. Later in the season, Sanders fumbled on the five-yard line as the Nittany Lions were just about to put the game away against Iowa. This allowed the Hawkeyes to nearly pull off a dramatic comeback, that fortunately was thwarted at the last second. 4) Are you surprised where he was drafted? Higher or lower than expected? Just right?The middle of the second round is exactly what I was thinking for Sanders. If he had the same skill-set at another position, he would have gone higher and possibly heard his name called in the first round. But considering NFL teams approach the running back position Mike Quick Jerseys 2019 , middle of the second round seems just about right for Sanders. 5) How do you see his NFL career playing out?As long as he stays healthy, I could see him becoming a staple of the Eagles offense for the forseeable future with a couple Pro Bowls appearances. He’s an overall talented player who came to Penn State as the top-rated running back in his class. The lack of wear and tear from sitting behind Barkley in ‘16 and ‘17 should benefit him greatly and add time to his NFL career, where running backs often have too short of a shelf life. 6) Anything to know about him off the field?From all accounts, Sanders is an all-around great guy. His work ethic was always lauded, and he never once complained about sitting and waiting his turn. He was highly respected by teammates who will be an asset in the locker room. He was also grinning ear-to-ear in any picture I’ve seen of him off-the-field, and just seems to be a good dude to have around. I could see him quickly becoming a fan favorite as long as he’s producing on the field. Highlights:Mockdraftable:Relative athletic score:
