When the topic of running back Jay Ajayi came up in Eagles head coach Doug Pederson’s Friday press conference, Pederson said he had not made a decision about whether Ajayi would be in the lineup less than a week after he was acquired in a trade with the Dolphins.
Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports on Sunday morning that Ajayi will be in uniform against the Broncos on Sunday. Rapoport adds that Ajayi will have a “small package of plays” and Pederson outlined what that package will look like.
“No, it’s very limited — 10 to 15 plays. I just want him to feel comfortable there,” Pederson said in comments distributed by the team. “But it’s a taste of a little bit of every aspect of the offense, you know what I’m saying? So first and second and third down; we’ll find out a little bit more today in the red zone. Stuff like that. But it definitely won’t be the full complement of the playbook.”
