Eagles' Wendell Smallwood: Likely to make roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Despite missing time this pre-season due to a hamstring injury, Smallwood is still very likely to make the club, Dave Zangaro of CSN Philadelphia reports.

There have been whispers that Smallwood could be the Eagles' No. 1 back, or that he might not make the team at all. However, the second-year player might be Philadelphia's most complete back. Coach Doug Pederson praised Smallwood Tuesday, telling the media that Eagles' brass were very happy with where their running back was at and that he had done an outstanding job throughout the pre-season. The West Virginia product seems poised for more playing time in 2017 even though Corey Clement has also been solid and is still competing for a roster spot.

Eagles' Donnel Pumphrey: Struggling to earn role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pumphrey has been struggling at practice, Jimmy Kempski of Philly Voice reports.

There was some talk about Pumphrey entering Week 1 with a significant role when he got snaps with the first-team offense during the offseason program and into the first few days of training camp. It increasingly seems the rookie is merely being groomed as the successor to Darren Sproles, with Pumphrey's 2017 involvement largely dependent on his mentor's ability to stay healthy. Given that he won't contribute on special teams unless he wins a return job, Pumphrey could be a gameday inactive to start the season. Philadelphia might also stash him on injured reserve, though he seems to be healthy at the moment.

Eagles' Nick Foles: Will continue to sit out Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foles (elbow) will be sidelined for Thursday's preseason game against Miami, Tim McManus of ESPN.com reports.

Although Foles has been practicing, the Eagles see no reason to push him and risk him further aggravating his elbow. Matt McGloin is expected to receive a good chunk of preseason snaps, but still expect Foles to be the backup for the 2016 second-overall pick, Carson Wentz, when the Week 1 depth chart is set.

Eagles' LeGarrette Blount: Expected to have a role in offense
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

While there has been speculation of late regarding Blount's job security with the Eagles, coach Doug Pederson indicated Tuesday that the veteran back is in line to be a "big part of (the Philadelphia) offense,"Tim McManus of ESPN.com reports.

Meanwhile, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero relays that Pederson described Blount, who is listed at 6-0, 250 pounds as "a beast of a runner." While Blount's team context is not nearly as favorable as it was in 2016, when he logged 18 rushing touchdowns for the Patriots, it appears as though he'll get the first crack at the Eagles' early-down/short-yardage duties, with Wendell Smallwood presumably on hand to work in a complementary/backup role and a combo of Donnel Pumphrey and Darren Sproles slotting in as pass-catching options.

Eagles' Wendell Smallwood: Impressive when on field
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smallwood has improved his receiving ability this offseason, Chris McPherson of the Eagles' official site reports.

He has also been cutting fluidly since his Monday return to practice from a hamstring injury. Eagles offensive coordinator Frank Reich sang his praises, saying the second-year player could be a three-down back. This improvement could translate to a larger role in the Eagles' offense for Smallwood this season, especially if LeGarrette Blount underwhelms. On the other hand, there's also been talk of undrafted rookie Corey Clement unseating Smallwood for a roster spot, though it now appears Clement could instead make the team at Blount's expense. The overarching point is that the Philadelphia backfield remains fluid, with Darren Sproles' role in passing situations the only near-certainty.
