Eagles RB Jay Ajayi Tore His ACL, Is Out For The Year

Eagles RB Jay Ajayi to miss rest of season with torn ACL

With Ajayi done for the season with an ACL injury, and the Eagles offense sputtering - just 5.2 yards per play, 25th in the National Football League, compared to last year's 5.6, which placed 8th - perhaps it's time for the Eagles to get creative.

Sure, the Eagles reportedly aren't interested in trading for Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell.

McCoy spent his first 6 seasons as a member of the Eagles and would possibly love to leave a rebuilding franchise in Buffalo for a team coming off a Super Bowl win. However, a recent report indicates that they are not planning to pursue a trade for the Steelers' disgruntled star. Philadelphia could certainly fit the latter part of the bill, and the team was willing to trade a fourth-round pick to the Dolphins past year for a lesser back in Ajayi.

Trump says UN ambassador Haley to leave at end of year
She told Trump around six months ago that she was thinking of quitting by the end this year "to take a little time off", he said . Echoing previous statements from Trump, Haley said the United States under his presidency is now respected around the world.

Jay Ajayi's lasting memory from the 2018 season will be fumbling inside the five-yard line in a 23-21 loss to the Vikings.

The Boise State product was traded to Philadelphia from Miami midway through the 2018 season. So if he's not the primary trade target for the Eagles now, he's a solid fallback option if Bell is genuinely available but is deemed to be more risky overall.

It's hardly out of the question that the Eagles stand pat with what they have, particularly as they would still have to clear several millions of dollars in salary-cap space to take on Bell's contract. Of the 11 running backs with over 500 carries during that time, only Ezekiel Elliott and LeSean McCoy have run for a higher average.
