Friday update: Jordan Howard is out, while Boston Scott is questionable, per Eliot Shorr-Parks. Miles Sanders will play and should see some extra work with all the injuries.
Thursday update: Howard was once again a DNP on Thursday and is not on track to play in Week 13.
Philadelphia Eagles running back Jordan Howard was listed as a non-participant for practice on Wednesday due to his knee injury. Wednesday was just a walkthrough day for the Eagles, so his designation was an estimation.
#Eagles injury report (estimate bc it was a walkthrough)— Eliot Shorr-Parks (@EliotShorrParks) December 1, 2021
Jordan Howard (knee)
Boston Scott (illness)
DeVonta Smith (illness)
TJ Edwards (ankle)
Howard was forced to miss Sunday’s 13-7 loss to the New York Giants due to the injury. He was last in action for the team’s Week 11 victory over the New Orleans Saints, a game where he took 10 carries for 63 yards.
The former Pro Bowl running back was elevated from the Philly practice squad to the active roster in Week 8, a result of injuries and the general ineffectiveness of the Eagles’ running game. Since that elevation, he’s been a reliable offensive weapon as the team started gaining some momentum.
Fantasy football implications
Howards’ status will obviously come down to whether he participates in practice on Thursday and Friday, so fantasy managers should keep tabs on him.
