Jay Ajayi Injury Fallout

Jay Ajayi is out for the season with a torn ACL

Which Eagles RB will benefit the most from Jay Ajayi's ACL tear (3:51) and is Ronald Jones (14:42 & 15:53) in a prime spot to grab Tampa Bay's starting tailback job?

The Eagles now have just over $4.3 million in cap space.

It helped that the Eagles had already been linked to Bell, in large part because of a late-September report from Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports.

Although the Eagles didn't specify the injury, Ajayi tore his ACL and will miss the rest of the season, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Ajayi, who is in a contract year, has been playing through a transverse fracture in his back suffered against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 2. The other two running backs on the roster are Corey Clement and Wendell Smallwood.

Ajayi, in his team's loss to Minnesota on Sunday, carried the ball just eight times for 29 yards.

Adding either Johnson or Bell would take a serious hit to the Eagles payroll this year and beyond. He rushed for 1,924 yards and nine touchdowns in 31 games with Miami before he was traded to the Eagles In October 2017.

It's no secret the Pittsburgh Steelers are actively trying to trade running back Le'Veon Bell. Darren Sproles could also be a factor when he returns from injury.
