Eagles RB Josh Adams labeled as questionable against Redskins
The task against the Redskins may have gotten a bit more difficult as rookie running back Josh Adams has been placed on the injury report on Saturday as questionable with a hip injury that could put his chances to play in the air, according to Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk.
Eagles running back Josh Adams is questionable for Monday night’s game against Washington with a hip injury. Adams was limited in practice on Saturday. He didn’t appear on the injury report at all on Thursday or Friday.
Adams has quickly proven to be a pleasant surprise for the Eagles over the last few games as he has been a huge spark plug out of the backfield. He has quickly become the team’s leading rusher with 291 yards on 56 attempts with a pair of touchdowns. The bulk of his work in the backfield has come in the running game as he posted a career-high 84 rushing yards on 22 carries along with a touchdown.
There had been no hint of dealing with an injury all week, but this could be just for precautionary reasons heading into the contest. He has the next couple of days to prove that he can work past the hip ailment and take the field against the Redskins. This may be something that the team simply monitors as he prepares for the contest.
If he is unable to give it a go, the Eagles will likely look to lean on their slew of running backs in Corey Clement, Wendell Smallwood, and Darren Sproles to carry the workload in the backfield. Philadelphia has gone with a running back-by-committee approach over the last couple of years, and this won’t be different from that game plan.
