Howard (shoulder) was listed as limited on Wednesday's practice estimate.
Considering his approximate activity level, Howard has yet to be cleared for contact as he continues his recovery from a shoulder stinger. Assuming this holds throughout the week, he's in danger of missing a fifth consecutive contest Sunday at Washington, which would thrust Miles Sanders and Boston Scott into prime roles out of the Eagles' backfield.
Howard (shoulder) is listed as inactive Monday versus the Giants.
Despite being listed as questionable for this game, Howard hasn't been cleared for contact as he works his way through a shoulder stinger. Zach Berman of The Athletic noted Saturday that he didn't expect clearance to happen for Week 14, which has come to pass. As Howard misses his fourth outing in a row, Miles Sanders again will lead the Eagles' backfield, with Jay Ajayi and Boston Scott in reserve.
Howard (shoulder) is not expected to play Monday night against the Giants, Derrick Gunn of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
Howard officially is listed as questionable for the contest, but it looks like he's trending toward inactive status in advance of Monday night's 8:15 p.m. ET kickoff, which would set the stage for Miles Sanders to handle most of the team's backfield work Week 14, with Jay Ajayi and Boston Scott on hand to work in complementary roles.
Howard (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Giants.
While Howard did practice on a limited basis Saturday, Zach Berman of The Athletic reported the 25-year-old still has not been cleared for contact, which would make playing in Monday's contest a longshot. Should Howard inevitably find himself inactive, Miles Sanders would slide in as the No. 1 back in yet another solid matchup, this time against a porous Giants defense.
Howard (shoulder) practiced in a limited capacity Friday.
On Thursday, coach Doug Pederson told Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia that Howard has yet to be cleared for contact as he recovers from a shoulder stinger, which has sidelined him since the Eagles' Week 10 bye. Howard seemingly will continue to log 'limited' sessions until that occurs, but in the meantime the Eagles will trust rookie Miles Sanders to handle most of the backfield work. After Sanders, Jay Ajayi and Boston Scott could get the occasional rep or two.
Howard (shoulder) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice.
Coach Doug Pederson relayed prior to the Eagles' first practice of Week 14 that Howard has yet to receive the green light to absorb contact, so don't expect him to upgrade to full participation until he gains clearance to take hits. On a positive note, Pederson suggested that he doesn't believe Howard's injury is of the season-ending variety, per Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia, though the 25-year-old looks like he could be trending toward a fourth straight absence Monday versus the Giants.

The report adds that coach Doug Pederson doesn't think Howard's injury is season-ending, but a comment like that is a strong hint that we won't see the running back play Week 14. If Howard remains out Monday night, Miles Sanders would continue to head the Eagles' backfield, with Jay Ajayi in line to work in a complementary role.
Howard (shoulder) was ruled out prior to Sunday's contest against the Dolphins.
Despite practicing on a limited basis all week, the Eagles proactively ruled out their starting running back for the third consecutive week. Expect Miles Sanders to continue operating as the lead role in the backfield by committee, with Jay Ajayi and Boston Scott contributing periodically.
Howard (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.
Howard was a limited participant in practice Wednesday through Friday, an indication that the Eagles still haven't cleared him to take contact. Considering that Howard was ultimately ruled out for the past two games after carrying questionable tags into both contests following limited participation in the final practices of those weeks, there's a decent chance he follows a similar path again. If Howard is sidelined for a third straight game, Miles Sanders would presumably remain the Eagles' lead option at running back after out-touching Jay Ajayi by a 15-6 margin in the team's Week 12 loss to Seattle.
Howard (shoulder) was listed as limited on Thursday's injury report.
Howard's practice reps have been capped by a shoulder stinger the past three weeks, with no end in sight because he hasn't been cleared for contact. Coach Doug Pederson expressed some optimism Wednesday that Howard "is progressing" through the injury, but until the Eagles tab him as a 'full' participant on a practice report, he seems unlikely to take the field. Another absence from Howard on Sunday in Miami will vault Miles Sanders into a leading role. Behind Sanders, Jay Ajayi and Boston Scott will be available for the occasional rep.
Howard (shoulder) will remain limited at Wednesday's practice, Mike Kaye of The Newark Star-Ledger reports. "It is progressing," coach Doug Pederson said of Howard's recovery from the shoulder injury. "It's trending, obviously, in the right way. We've just got to make sure he gets his strength back before we put him back out there."
Per the report, the running back has yet to be cleared for contact while he continues to battle a stinger. Howard still has two more chances this week to increase his practice activity, but if he's unable to suit up Sunday against the Dolphins, Miles Sanders would be in line to lead the Eagles' backfield.
Coach Doug Pederson said Howard still hasn't regained full strength in his shoulder and will likely be limited to individual work in practices to begin Week 13, Mike Kaye of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.
Pederson described Howard as day-to-day, a label he typically gives to players when he's unsure of their availability for an upcoming game. In Howard's case, his lack of noteworthy progress in his recovery from the stinger since the Eagles' Week 10 bye doesn't offer much early assurance that he'll be able to avoid a third straight absence Sunday versus Miami. While Howard sat out the Week 12 loss to the Seahawks, Miles Sanders remained the Eagles' lead back, gaining 86 yards on 15 touches while playing 84 percent of the offensive snaps.
Howard (shoulder) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Seahawks.
As anticipated, Howard's shoulder injury will sideline him for a second straight contest after he was unable to advance beyond limited participation in practice this week. According to Daniel Gallen of The Harrisburg Patriot-News, Miles Sanders is expected to serve as the Eagles' primary option out of the backfield, though reserve backs Boston Scott and Jay Ajayi should also have roles in coach Doug Pederson's game plan.
Howard (shoulder), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Seahawks, is expected to be inactive for the contest, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Howard's status won't be clarified until the Eagles release their inactive list 90 minutes before the 1 p.m. ET kickoff, but the team's lead option on the ground looks like he'll be sidelined for a second straight game. If that's the case, rookie Miles Sanders would presumably step in as the Eagles' top back, though coach Doug Pederson indicated Jay Ajayi could have a role in the game plan after logging zero snaps in his 2019 debut in Week 11. Boston Scott also looms as a change-of-pace option.
Howard (shoulder) remained limited at Friday's practice and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Seattle.
The failure to progress to full participation suggests Howard still hasn't been cleared for contact. It's possible that happens before Sunday, but fantasy managers should treat him as a game-time decision ahead of the 1:00 p.m. ET kickoff. Miles Sanders is next in line for backfield reps, followed by some combination of Boston Scott and Jay Ajayi. Sanders got 85 percent of the snaps last week against the Patriots, but coach Doug Pederson mentioned Friday morning that Ajayi should get some work in the upcoming NFC battle.
Howard (shoulder) practiced in a limited capacity Thursday.
Howard has yet to be cleared for contact, containing him to limited listings on the Eagles' first two injury reports of Week 12. With a shoulder stinger in tow, it's unclear when he'll be available to the backfield, but Miles Sanders, Boston Scott and even Jay Ajayi are on hand in the event Sanders misses a second game in a row Sunday against the Seahawks.
Howard (shoulder) will be limited to individual work at Wednesday's practice, as he still hasn't been cleared for contact, Martin Frank of The Delaware News Journal reports.
Howard was a limited participant throughout last week before sitting out Sunday's 17-10 loss to New England. The Eagles hope to have their lead runner in the lineup for Week 12 against Seattle, but it doesn't sound like he's noticed much progress since last Friday. Miles Sanders, Boston Scott and Jay Ajayi are the healthy options in the Philadelphia backfield.
Howard (shoulder) is inactive for Sunday's contest versus the Patriots.
Although Howard practiced in a limited capacity all week, he was never cleared for contact following the stinger suffered Week 9 against the Bears. Miles Sanders thus is set to be the lead runner out of the Eagles' backfield, with Boston Scott and recent signee Jay Ajayi in reserve.
Howard (shoulder), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Patriots, isn't expected to play, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
The 25-year-old is officially listed as questionable after working as a limited practice participant all week, but it's not overly surprising to see he's not on track to play after coach Doug Pederson said Friday he hadn't been cleared for contact. Howard suffered a stinger during the Week 9 win over the Bears and wasn't able to fully recover over the bye week. Miles Sanders is primed to handle the lead role in the backfield for the Eagles in his potential absence. Jay Ajayi was signed Friday to provide depth after Darren Sproles (hip) was placed on injured reserve.
Howard (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Patriots after logging limited practice participation throughout the week.
Recovering from a stinger, Howard never made it back to full practice participation, with coach Doug Pederson noting Friday morning that the running back hadn't been cleared for contact. The signing of Jay Ajayi might be taken as an ominous sign, though it could also be related to Darren Sproles (hip) landing on injured reserve. Barring any additional updates, Howard should be treated as a game-time decision ahead of Sunday's 4:25 p.m. ET kickoff. Miles Sanders would handle the lead role in the event of a Howard absence, with Boston Scott and/or Ajayi filling in behind the rookie.
