Eagles running back Josh Adams WILL suit up on Monday Night Football against the Washington Redskins despite being ruled “questionable” on Philadelphia’s final injury report, according to NBCSP’s Derrick Gunn.
Adams was a full participant in practice on Thursday and Friday but he was limited during Saturday’s session due to a hip issue. Apparently the injury isn’t severe enough to prevent him from playing.
It’s good news for the Eagles that Adams WILL play. The rookie rusher has been Philly’s most efficient running option in recent weeks. Adams has 49 carries for 262 yards (5.3 average) and two touchdowns in his last five games played. He actually leads the Eagles in rushing yards this year.
It’ll be interesting to see how much playing time Adams gets on Monday night. The Eagles gave Adams 22 carries last week against the Giants. But with Adams potentially less than 100% and Darren Sproles expected to return to the rotation, it’s fair to wonder if his role will be impacted.
On paper, at least, it looks like the Eagles could have success running the ball this week. Washington’s run defense ranks 26th overall in DVOA. Opposing running backs have been productive against them in recent weeks.
We’ll see if Adams can keep his hot streak going in a crucial primetime game against a division rival.
