Jay Ajayi played 17 snaps in his Eagles debut. Decent amount for a guy who just got here earlier this week. LeGarrette Blount only played one fewer snap than the Jay Train.
Corey Clement led all Eagles runners with 28 snaps. Part of that is because he got carries in garbage time, but the other part of it is that the Eagles actually like the undrafted runner and want him involved in the offense. Clement had a strong day: he finished with 12 rushes for 51 yards (4.3 average) and two touchdowns. Oh, and he had a 15-yard receiving touchdown on a screen play.
Big increase in playing time for Brent Celek and Trey Burton with Ertz out, obviously. The Eagles have quality depth at tight end.
Mack Hollins played a career-high 30 snaps. Torrey Smith only played one more snap than the rookie wideout. Smith caught his first pass since Oct. 12 against the Panthers.
Isaac Seumalo filled in at right tackle when Lane Johnson went down with a bruised tailbone.
Stefen Wisniewski, Halapoulivaati Vaitai, and Jason Kelce were the only three starters who played 100% of the snaps with 69 each. Nice game for them.
Carson Wentz was pulled with 9:15 remaining in the fourth quarter. Nick Foles took over in his place.
Chance Warmack came in at right guard for Brandon Brooks late in the game.
Wendell Smallwood didn’t play until late in the fourth quarter. He likely would’ve been a healthy scratch on Sunday if Ertz wasn’t injured.
Oddly enough, Kenjon Barner got the “start” at running back for the Eagles since he was out there on the first snap. But he only played one more snap after that.
Nigel Bradham and Mychal Kendricks are taking the bulk of linebacker snaps with Jordan Hicks out. The Eagles have mixed Malcolm Jenkins in at linebacker as well. Philly has clearly tried to limit the snaps for Joe Walker and Najee Goode.
Patrick Robinson played the second most snaps of any Eagles corner. He got the start on the outside opposite of Jalen Mills. Robinson is splitting some of his snaps with rookie corner Rasul Douglas.
Reserve players Kamu Grugier-Hill and Dexter McDougle got to play some defensive snaps near the end of the game. Nice reward for two guys who play hard on special teams.
LB Nate Gerry - 21 snaps (58%)
K Jake Elliott - 17 snaps (47%)
LS Rick Lovato - 10 snaps (28%)
P Donnie Jones - 10 snaps (28%)
Gerry hasn’t played on defense but he’s been contributing on special teams.
Elliott made his only field goal attempt: a 45-yard kick. He missed one of his seven extra points. He missed two last week, so it’d be nice if this stops soon.
Jones only punted twice in this game. What a slacker.
