Eagles RB J.J. Arrington received very few reps in training camp due to an "ankle/foot" injury.

He's reportedly also still feeling the effects of 2009 microfracture surgery on his knee, which seems to make Arrington's chances of lasting through final cuts pretty poor. Martell Mallett and Eldra Buckley look to be ahead.

Eagles acquired RB J.J. Arrington and a conditional draft pick in 2012 from the Broncos in exchange for LB Joe Mays.

Arrington was out of football last year after undergoing microfracture surgery, and it's completely unclear what he has left. The 27-year-old can be a passing-down asset when healthy, though the Eagles are good to go in that area with starter LeSean McCoy. If Arrington makes the team -- and it's a big "if" -- he'll probably be No. 3 or 4 on the depth chart behind McCoy and Mike Bell. Underrated rookie Charles Scott will be his main competition for No. 3.

J.J. Arrington (knee) had his first "extensive" team workout of the offseason on Friday.

Limited to 7-on-7 drills, Arrington estimates that he is 85 percent recovered from last year's microfracture surgery. He's going to battle for a roster spot as a kickoff returner and spot player on passing downs, but he's far from a sure bet to make the team.

J.J. Arrington is expected to compete for kickoff return duties with the Broncos this season.

He'll have to make the team first. Coach Josh McDaniels envisions Arrington in a Kevin Faulk type of role, but Correll Buckhalter is a superior option on third downs.

Broncos re-signed RB J.J. Arrington.

Per FoxSports' Alex Marvez, Arrington will receive a one-year deal this time around. His four-year, $10 million contract was negated last year when he failed his physical due to a knee injury that required microfracture surgery in May. If healthy, Arrington will battle for a roster spot as strictly a third-down back behind Knowshon Moreno and Correll Buckhalter.

J.J. Arrington, released by the Broncos on Wednesday, is scheduled to undergo microfracture surgery on his balky right knee.

This will likely knock Arrington out for the season. The scope he had to repair a torn meniscus this winter obviously didn't do the trick. He'll try to catch on in 2010 as a 27-year-old scatback coming off two knee operations.

Broncos released/failed physical RB J.J. Arrington.

Peter King reports Denver only paid him $100,000, and released him now to avoid a roster bonus. Denver signed Arrington in March hoping he'd be Josh McDaniels' next Kevin Faulk, but Knowshon Moreno will now play passing downs. The move should ensure Correll Buckhalter and LaMont Jordan's spots on the team. Arrington may not resurface until 2010 because of his knee problems.

J.J. Arrington (knee), Selvin Young (neck), and Ryan Torain (torn ACL) were unable to participate in Denver's minicamp practice Friday.

Young and Torain are fighting an uphill battle to relevance as Shanahan holdovers, and their injuries won't help. Arrington is recovering from a torn meniscus.

Broncos coach Josh McDaniels envisions employing J.J. Arrington like he did Kevin Faulk in New England.

"Arrington was the only back who played in the fourth quarter for (Arizona) in the Super Bowl," the coach said. "That tells you all you need to know." Arrington has to make the team, but he could lead Denver RBs in catches.

J.J. Arrington needed surgery on his torn meniscus after the season.

He played through the injury in the Super Bowl. Arrington should be 100% by camp, but the Broncos refused to guarantee his 2009 salary after he revealed the injury. Arrington still needs a strong offseason to make the team.

Broncos agreed to terms with RB J.J. Arrington on a four-year, $10 million contract.

The sides had a deal on the first day of free agency, but Profootballtalk reports that the Broncos backed out over an injury to Arrington's meniscus. They have since found common ground. Denver has added three bodies to its backfield since February 27, but Josh McDaniels will struggle to find a good player in the mix. None of the signees (Arrington, Correll Buckhalter, LaMont Jordan) is guaranteed to make the Week 1 roster.

Free agent RB J.J. Arrington has reportedly "moved on" after his deal with the Broncos fell apart.

Arrington is talking to the Cardinals once again. The Broncos may still be looking for a running back after losing Arrington and coming up just short on Derrick Ward.

The Broncos' four-year contract agreement with J.J. Arrington is reportedly in danger of falling apart.

"J.J's back in Arizona," his agent said, although he added that "the deal's not dead yet." There are reportedly issues with the contract's language. Denver is also entertaining free agent Derrick Ward, who has much more ability than Arrington. Ward's pricetag could be dropping after two visits in free agency.

Broncos agreed to terms with RB J.J. Arrington on a four-year contract.

With Peyton Hillis, Correll Buckhalter, and Ryan Torain in the mix, Arrington is very likely to remain a return specialist and third-down back. The Broncos figure to run a committee, but Arrington probably won't see the ball more than he did in Arizona. He's not a fantasy factor.
