Eagles RB Jordan Howard, WR Nelson Agholor ‘unlikely’ to play vs. Seahawks
The Philadelphia Eagles are in for a fight against the Seattle Seahawks at Lincoln Financial Field on Sunday, but they will have to be prepared to play with Jordan Howard and Nelson Agholor. This report will have an adverse effect on Philadelphia’s already-struggling offense.
Adam Schefter was one of the first to report the development on the Eagles injury list.
Eagles RB Jordan Howard, listed as questionable with a shoulder injury, and WR Nelson Agholor, questionable with a knee injury, are both unlikely to play against the Seahawks, per source.
WR Alshon Jeffery, listed as questionable with an ankle injury, is expected to play.

Depending on how things go against the Seahawks, the absence of these two will be a great loss to the Eagles’ overall offensive efficiency.
Howard has been one of the team’s top running back options. It’s true that his numbers don’t pop out that much, but he’s a powerful running back. His powerful running can be a handful for opposing defenders trying to stop his 6’0″, 224 lb. frame.
There have been talks as to whether he should be given a contract extension as his rookie deal is expiring soon. He’s currently the leading rusher for the Eagles with his 525 yards and six touchdowns.
Meanwhile, Agholor is a solid option at wide receiver for the Eagles. Through ten games, Agholor has 322 receiving yards and three touchdowns.
However, Agholor is in the middle of another off-court controversy. There are allegations that the wideout has a burner Twitter account where he is saying a lot of negative things about Philly quarterback Carson Wentz. Agholor vehemently denied the accusations.
It will be interesting to see how the Eagles will face the Seahawks without the two playmakers on their team. They will likely toil to get the result they want.
