Three of the team’s top skill position players
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Even with Carson Wentz back http://www.eaglescheapauthenticstore.com...rsey-cheap , the Philadelphia Eagles are far from complete.Sunday’s 20-16 win over Indianapolis but could be nearing a return.Wide receiver Alshon Jeffery and running backs Jay Ajayi and Darren Sproles are getting closer to rejoining the offense after missing a combined six games.It’s still too early to know their status for this week’s game at Tennessee (2-1).“Sometimes it feels like you don’t know the identity maybe of your offense (without) those guys,” coach Doug Pederson said.“You kind of have hopes and you kind of say, ‘OK, this is what we think we have.’ Individually we kind of know these guys Zach Brown Jersey , but collectively as a unit, I think you’re still working through the month of September trying to figure out your identity a little bit offensively.”Jeffery hasn’t played since offseason shoulder surgery. He had 57 catches for 789 yards and a team-high nine touchdowns last season.“We’ll get him in the mix a little more this week and see where he’s at health-wise,” Pederson said Monday.Sproles missed the past two games because of a hamstring injury and Ajayi sat out one game with a back issue.“They’re both day to day right now,” Pederson said. “I would expect Devin Bush Jersey , barring any setbacks, that they would both be available (for practice).”The Eagles (2-1) still had their best rushing game without Ajayi and Sproles. Wendell Smallwood, Corey Clement and rookie Josh Adams had a total of 142 yards on 32 carries against the Colts.“Got to have guys like that,” Pederson said. “Might be role players http://www.steelerscheapauthenticstore.c...rsey-cheap , but their role is pretty big in games when your two top guys are down in the backfield.”Missing Jeffery has hurt the team’s passing attack. Mike Wallace also went down in Week 2 and Mack Hollins began the season on IR. Pederson used two and three tight ends in more offensive sets and Wentz completed only six passes to receivers in his first game back since last December.Nelson Agholor had four catches for 24 yards and Jordan Matthews had two receptions for 21 yards in his return to the Eagles.“Defense and special teams kind of carry the load early in the season and offense kind of plays catch-up a little bit,” Pederson said.“When the offense catches its stride, then you got a good thing going. The other thing is it’s a long season. We find ways to win these games early, makes a big difference down the stretch when you start getting the guys back.”Notes: Safety Rodney McLeod is still being evaluated after injuring his knee. Pederson expects to update his status on Thursday. There’s nothing worse than when your team goes out to the free agency market Justin Layne Jersey , finally drops millions of dollars on a supposed to be star, and then your new go-to player bottoms out. It’s the worst. Seeing your team finally go out and spend a load of money on a failure is awful. And it happens all too often. We’re not looking at every free agent flop on this list, this list is reserved for the worst free agent busts since 2010. These are the worst 15 signings of this decade. It has only been a short time, yet there’s still a good chunk of high-profile pickups that did not live up to the expectations.You would think that once a guy reaches free agency http://www.steelerscheapauthenticstore.c...rsey-cheap , it’s obvious what he can and can’t bring to a team. By the time players reach the free agent market, they have a track record of work put in after years of being in the NFL. This list doesn’t look at the undrafted free agents, we’re looking at the guys who have years of experience and were supposedly stars.This list includes guys who never saw the field on the teams that offered them multi-year contracts and it also includes guys who were supposed to be superstars and just didn’t fit the mold. Some of the guys were among the NFL’s best athletes before signing their shiny new contract. The one thing all of these guys have in common is that they were expected to be stars. But none of these guys starred on the team that offered them the huge contract.
