Many. Options.EDTThe Eagles’ roster has seen quite a bit of movement since the end of the 2018 season, but a lot of critical players are returning either on new contracts or existing long-term deals. There’s also a lot of really exciting new blood joining the Philadelphia locker room.That being said, this is one of the more challenging questions to ponder in my opinion, because there are A LOT of good candidates for favorite player. Last year, I think I would have had an easy time choosing Chris Long for this honor, simply because he has an amazingly fun personality, was a beast on the field, and do so much exemplary work in the community. But, since he retired http://www.eagleslockerroom.com/authentic-corey-clement-jersey , I’ve got to look elsewhere.I’m going to be one of those difficult people who change their own rules, and actually offer up additional favorites — like, when you ask someone their favorite movie and they break it up in categories.On offense, my favorite player is receiver Alshon Jeffery. I love that he’s willing to leave it all on the field when it matters most — hello, playing through a torn labrum — and is also a guy who loves supporting all the other Philly sports teams.On defense, I’d have to go with Malcolm Jenkins. Similar to Chris Long, he’s such a leader on and off the field, and he’s a guy who embraces helping the younger players on the roster and developing them into excellent defenders. I’m also going to add that Cameron Johnston is my favorite Special Teamer, thanks to his ability to boot the ball 80-plus yards Womens DeSean Jackson Jersey , make spectacular tackles on returners, and his Australian accent.(And, sure, two of my choices are Buckeyes... don’t @ me.) (Editor note: none of us saw it coming)<hr class="p-entry-hr" id="bXaJms">Who is your favorite current Eagles player?Sound off in the comments! (You can make up your own rules too if you can’t just limit it to one, or want to choose a whole position group.) PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Losing Jay Ajayi means the Philadelphia Eagles will have to turn to a banged-up committee of running backs.While the front office ponders making a deal to replace Ajayi, the Eagles (2-3) will rely on the group it has Thursday night against the New York Giants (1-4). Only two of the remaining four backs are healthy.Veteran Darren Sproles missed the past four games with a hamstring injury and didn’t practice Tuesday, so it’s unlikely he’ll be ready to go. Corey Clement was back on the field after sitting out the last two games because of a quadriceps injury. Clement would likely get most of the touches if he’s able to play.Wendell Smallwood and undrafted rookie Josh Adams should also see plenty of action.“Big shoes to fill,” quarterback Carson Wentz said of losing Ajayi, who tore his ACL. “He was a violent Cameron Johnston Jersey , downhill runner that sought contact and loved to feed off that, and that got us going. But we feel confident in these guys stepping up. We saw Wendell step up and make plays. Getting Corey back will be big for us. Josh is going to have to increase his role. Hopefully, Sproles comes back soon. We have a stable of workhorses but it’s tough losing Jay.”Personnel boss Howie Roseman is certainly looking around to see if he can bring in another running back that fits Philadelphia’s needs — at the right price. There’s already been speculation the Eagles could pursue LeSean McCoy, the franchise’s all-time leading rusher traded by Chip Kelly to Buffalo in 2015.Ajayi was acquired from Miami at the trade deadline last season and helped the Eagles win the Super Bowl.“I think with any new player, regardless of who you’re talking of, there is a learning curve involved,” offensive coordinator Mike Groh said.Ajayi had 184 yards rushing, an average of 4.1 yards per carry, and three touchdowns this season. Clement has 112 yards rushing http://www.eagleslockerroom.com/authentic-paul-worrilow-jersey , an average of 4.1 yards per carry and one TD, plus eight catches for 74 yards. Smallwood has 150 yards rushing, a 6.0 average, and one TD on the ground and one receiving. Adams has seven carries.“Jay is a big part of what we’ve done,” Groh said. “It’s an injury that will impact us here until we get the guys back out there. Wendell has done a really nice job in the playing time he’s gotten thus far in the season. Really pleased with his production, he’s done a nice job. Corey is progressing with his injury. We’re happy with the guys we got. We think we still have talented players to be able to be really good at the running back position.”
