Over the last three weeks, Philadelphia Eagles rookie running back Josh Adams has emerged as a major offensive factor with his steady play out of the backfield.

Following his career-best outing in the Eagles’ 25-22 win over the New York Giants with 84 rushing yards on 22 carries and a touchdown, his teammates had nothing but high praise for the former Notre Dame product, as shared by Jeff Kerr of 247 Sports.

“That was big. He was big for us. Josh did a great job. He’s done a great job in everything we’ve asked him to do this year,” Wentz said. “Today he got the workload [and] he did a great job. He took it and ran with it. At the same time, the offensive line did a great job to lean on them. They made some nice holes and then Josh finished the runs really well and we got it done.”

“He’s fast, man. He’s really quick, he’s getting his knee healthy,” said Eagles right tackle Lane Johnson. “He goes about his business, really smart and doesn’t say a whole lot. [He’s] one of those guys that’s just a silent killer. As the season has gone on he keeps improving and improving and I’m really proud of what he did today.”

Adams has shown tremendous playmaking ability in his limited touches in the running game as he has already thrust himself into being their leading rusher with 291 yards on 56 carries and a pair of touchdowns. He has notched more than 40 rushing yards in each of the last three games played.

His production has brought some much-needed stability to the running game that the Eagles have lacked for much of the year, especially since Jay Ajayi went down with a season-ending torn ACL.

Philadelphia currently ranks 24th in the league in rushing while garnering just 4.2 yards per attempt and averaging 100.8 rushing yards per game, which is the ninth-lowest in the league.

With the Eagles well in the hunt to secure one of the Wild Card spots for the playoffs, he should see a significant workload for the rest of the season.
