Doug Pederson still mulling if Jay Ajayi will play Sunday

Doug Pederson still mulling if Jay Ajayi will play Sunday”

Pederson said he wanted to get through Friday's session, which features a lot of red zone work, before green-lighting Ajayi to play versus Denver.

The Eagles acquired running back Jay Ajayi in a trade with an eye on the present and the future. "I think he's got tremendous vision and can hit the hole extremely fast, and in the open field has the speed to run away from defenders". "It was a big day". Third down, we'll see today about red zone. "There are moving parts down there so we want to make sure we get through today first before we make that decision". They have given him just 10 to 15 plays, but Pederson said those plays are a good sampling of everything they do on offense.

Pederson did say that tight end Zach Ertz would play against the Broncos. It seems likely Ajayi might have at least a limited role if he's active on Sunday. The former Boise State star racked up 1,272 yards last season for the Dolphins and adds a combination of shiftiness and strength that was lacking in the Eagles' running backs room before he arrived.

Pederson said Ajayi's picked up the offense well the past few days and could be ready to go against Denver. He's anticipated that if Ajayi plays, it'll just be run plays and won't be asked to do anything else.

Executive VP Howie Roseman and coach Doug Pederson both said they feel Ajayi is their type of guy.

"He comes from an offense that uses familiar terminology so he's familiar with that", Pederson said. "He's done a nice job". Cornerback Ronald Darby (dislocated ankle) will once again be listed as questionable.

But don't bet on Darby playing, especially with the bye week looming.
