Alshon Jeffery (shoulder) remained limited at Thursday's practice.

Jeffery is making progress but remains "highly doubtful" for Sunday's game against Indianapolis. With Jeffery a long shot to play and Mike Wallace (knee) also sitting, look for Carson Wentz to feed Nelson Agholor and Zach Ertz early and often.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: With Jeffery looking pretty doubtful this week, Wentz will rely heavily on Nelson Agholor and Zach Ertz. Both should be cash game considerations in DFS. Agholor's just way too cheap on most DFS sites and should see 10-15 targets, while Ertz is priced up a little more but is still one of the safest TE's on this slate. A Wentz/Agholor/Ertz stack in tournaments has a ton of upside and could be lower owned than higher game total stacks in NO/ATL and KC/SF.

Darren Sproles (hamstring) remained sidelined at Thursday's practice.

Sproles hasn't practiced in over a week while battling a nagging hamstring injury. With Jay Ajayi (back) also banged up, the Eagles' backfield could be shorthanded against the Colts in Week 3.
Sep 20 - 1:09 PM

Jay Ajayi (back) remained sidelined at Thursday's practice.

Ajayi will probably have to get in at least a limited practice Friday in order to suit up Sunday against Indianapolis. With Ajayi (back) and Darren Sproles (hamstring) looking questionable at best for Week 3, Corey Clement needs to be picked up in all formats.

94 WIP's Eliot Shorr-Parks writes Alshon Jeffery (shoulder) is "very unlikely" to play this week.

On the bright side, Jeffery is expected to get more work in practice, suggesting he could be back when the Eagles face the Titans in Week 4. "It is a situation where they are starting to ramp up his work this week. It is just a matter of does he look like he is ready or not," NFL Insider Adam Caplan said on the Go Birds podcast. "I’ve heard, from people that have seen him, he looks really good." Zach Ertz and Nelson Agholor should continue to dominate targets while Jeffery is out.

Alshon Jeffery (shoulder) remained limited at Wednesday's practice.

He was limited all last week. Jeffery is working his way back from extensive shoulder surgery. With the Eagles desperate for receiver help and healthy bodies, they could push Jeffery harder than they had originally planned.
Sep 19 - 3:51 PM

Darren Sproles (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday.

Coach Doug Pederson hinted Sproles isn't going to play Week 3 against the Colts.
Sep 19 - 1:15 PM

Jay Ajayi (back) did not practice Wednesday.

Neither did Darren Sproles (hamstring), leaving Corey Clement, Wendell Smallwood, and Josh Adams as the team's healthy running backs. Coach Doug Pederson labeled Ajayi as day to day in his media session Wednesday.
Sep 19 - 1:13 PM

Coach Doug Pederson labeled Darren Sproles (hamstring) as day to day.

Pederson, however, did say Sproles' recovery might take a "little longer" than Jay Ajayi, who is dealing with a back issue. Sproles sounds more doubtful than anything for Week 3 against the Colts, leaving Corey Clement, Wendell Smallwood, and Josh Adams behind a questionable Ajayi.
Sep 19 - 10:48 AM

Coach Doug Pederson labeled both Jay Ajayi (back) and Darren Sproles (hamstring) as day to day.

Pederson said Sproles' recovery might take a "little longer," but it doesn't sound like Ajay has yet to be considered out or even a long shot for Week 3. We'll continue to keep a close eye on this situation the rest of the week. The Eagles promoted UDFA rookie Josh Adams from the practice squad.
Sep 19 - 10:45 AM

Eagles placed WR Mike Wallace on injured reserve with a broken fibula.

Wallace went down early in the loss to the Bucs, forcing the Eagles to roll with Kamar Aiken, Shelton Gibson, and TE Josh Perkins as the top options behind Nelson Agholor and Zach Ertz. Wallace didn't catch a single pass in his game-plus of action for Philly and turned 32 last month. There's a chance Wallace could return late in the year. Jordan Matthews takes his roster spot.
Sep 19 - 10:00 AM

Eagles signed WR Jordan Matthews.

Matthews is still just 26 and was a 2014 second-round pick of the Eagles. He spent his first three years with the team but saw his career take a downturn after multiple injuries and was then shipped to the Bills in the trade for CB Ronald Darby. Matthews has a close relationship with Carson Wentz and knows the offense. He's expected to step in immediately as the slot receiver after the Eagles were forced to use TE Josh Perkins there last week against the Bucs. However, Alshon Jeffery (shoulder) could return this week. Matthews isn't a fantasy add.
Sep 19 - 9:57 AM

Free agent WR Jordan Matthews worked out for the Eagles on Tuesday.

The Eagles are running low on bodies at receiver, and Matthews is an #OldFriend. His addition would be mixed news for Nelson Agholor, who would maybe have to spend less time in the slot.
Sep 18 - 4:02 PM

NBC Sports Philadelphia reports Eagles OC Mike Groh "indicated there's a good chance" Jay Ajayi (back) sits Week 3.

We are a bit surprised by the interpretation, as Groh termed RB Josh Adams' promotion from the practice squad a "precautionary measure." It definitely sounds like Ajayi is going to miss some practice time this week. That's nothing new. We would consider Ajayi on the right side of questionable after he played through the issue against the Bucs in Week 2. His status will be updated no later than Wednesday.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: New reports are putting Jay Ajayi's Week 3 availability in doubt. For an Eagles team already thin at WR and potentially without Ajayi and possibly Sproles again, Corey Clement could be in for a big workload against the Colts. With 85 total yards and a TD on 11 touches last week, Clement should be on your DFS cash game radar if Ajayi and Sproles sit. He's still very cheap and his involvement in the passing game helps raise his floor siginificantly on PPR sites.
Sep 18 - 2:24 PM

Eagles OC Mike Groh called RB Josh Adams' promotion from the practice squad "precautionary" with regards to Jay Ajayi's (back) health.

Adams got the call on Tuesday morning. Ajayi missed roughly half of Sunday's loss to the Bucs but finished the game as the Eagles' lead back. It sounds like he is going to miss some practice time this week but will be ready to face the Colts. Ajayi's health is an ever-looming concern, helping to cap his fantasy value at mid-range RB2.
Sep 18 - 2:02 PM

Eagles signed RB Josh Adams off their practice squad.

Adams had a good preseason, but he just missed out on making the initial 53-man roster. His signing could mean concern for Jay Ajayi, who missed most of the first half on Sunday because of a back injury, although he was able to return in the second half. It also could mean other teams were sniffing around and the Eagles did not want to lose Adams.
