It seems like starting running backs are dropping like flies.
Later in the day, one Cowboys’ NFC East rival got bad news, too.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Philadelphia Eagles will be without starting running back Jay Ajayi for the remainder of the season. Per the report, Ajayi tore his ACL on Sunday during his team’s 23-21 loss to the Minnesota Vikings.
The team placed the back on injured reserve, per Schefter’s sources.
Corey Clement and Wendell Smallwood, the Eagles’ two backups, will likely split carries in Ajayi’s place.
The Cowboys will play their first of two games against the Eagles on Nov. 11 in Philadelphia.
