How fantasy owners should approach Eagles RBs after Jay Ajayi's injury

You have to think this is the last we've seen of Ajayi as an Eagle. Bell has held out all season despite being given the franchise tag, but he plans to report to the Steelers midway through this season to accrue a year on his deal and be eligible for free agency.

It's dot-connecting season in the NFL. The Eagles announced Monday that they placed him on injured reserve with a knee injury suffered in Sunday's loss to the Vikings, and multiple National Football League journalists reported that Ajayi had torn the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee.

Despite this development along with the restructuring of Pro Bowl defensive tackle Fletcher Cox's contract, the Eagles are not expected to pursue Pittsburgh Steelers star running back Le'Veon Bell, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.

Ajayi will now be replaced by the committee of Wendell Smallwood, Corey Clement, and Darren Sproles.

Adding either Johnson or Bell would take a serious hit to the Eagles payroll this year and beyond.

It certainly won't be this year after he tore his ACL during the team's Week 5 loss to the Vikings. It indicates that they are most likely making a move for a running back.

Jay Ajayi #26 of the Philadelphia Eagles runs with the ball while defended by Kendrick Lewis #28 of the Tennessee Titans in the third quarter at Nissan Stadium on September 30, 2018 in Nashville, Tennessee. Of the 11 running backs with over 500 carries during that time, only Ezekiel Elliott and LeSean McCoy have run for a higher average.
