Eagles rule out Jordan Howard

The Eagles will have to play without their leading rusher tomorrow.

Jordan Howard has been ruled out and isn’t joining the team in Miami, the Eagles announced today.

Howard leads the team with 119 carries for 525 yards and six touchdowns, but Sunday’s game will be the third in a row he has missed because of that shoulder injury. The Eagles’ offense has sputtered in both games, a 17-10 loss to the Patriots and a 17-9 loss to the Seahawks.

The good news for the Eagles’ offense is that facing the Dolphins’ defense should be a lot easier. And if the Eagles win, they move into a tie for first place in the NFC East.

  1. Nick Foles has a QBR of 48 and is being exposed as the journeyman he really is. He’s also injury prone and has never finished a 16 game season. Eagles kept the right QB. Carson has no receivers and the ones he has don’t know the routes. Greg Ward had more production in one game than Hollins and JJ combined.

  2. Greg Ward was not commanding the attention of the opposing defense.
    Didn’t they stick a LB on him a few times?

    None of the receivers command any attention, they even drop passes when they’re wide open as they’ve shown again and again this season. Mack Hollins had zero catches in October because he can’t get any separation. Worst receivers in eagles history. Alshon has nothing left in the tank and Agholor‘s 2017 season was a fluke.

  4. Nick Foles is coming off injury on a brand new team and has playoff success and a super bowl MVP trophy. For Carson Wentz you constantly need various excuses to support his role as a starter for the Eagles.

    So excuses are ok for Foles but not Wentz. Makes sense! What was Foles reason for blowing the playoff game in New Orleans when he threw a horrible interception and then missed a WIDE OPEN Ertz for a TD? How about the fact that Foles was SO BAD to start the year so Wentz was rushed to return which led to his back injury. The Foles society has selective memories.

  6. As we say in New England it’s “ wicked funny “ the excuses Eagle fans are making for Wentz and the team. TB12 just like the Eagles , as a poster said above , “ has no receivers and the ones he has don’t know the routes”, not to mention the depleted o line. Yet TB12 has made do.
    It’s what great players do.

  7. Folks, as an eagles fan, let me be the first to let you in on a little secret.

    The eagles WILL LOSE to the dolphins. I have never been more confident in anything in my life. In fact, I am so confident, I am betting my entire 401k on a dolphins straight up win. Anyone who thinks the Eagles can win a “must win” game is a complete fool who doesn’t understand eagle football.

    Check back in with me on Monday and worship me as the greatest nostradamus of our time.

    No receivers? What about Edelman?

  9. Howard is a great running back I just he gets healthy and plays out the season strong and Howie sees it and gives him a long term contract extension.

  10. Dear Eagles Fans,

    Stop worrying! Don’t make excuses and fight with Pats fans. Heck, you are playing the Dolphins! In 2019 we make every team that plays us look great and even set individual and team best type stats regardless of who you have injured etc. I hate this as a fan, but this is what the Browns and Niners did and the Dolphins are in MUCH better shape with more Picks and Draft Cash. The only thing you might worry about is that when the Fins wear Throwbacks at home in Miami; they are 7-1. As a team the Dolphins have heart, but you are really playing an XFL quality roster. I would say about 7 guys on the 53 are actual Starters. Some are even 4th string! Try to relax and enjoy the game.

    Lol Pat’s fans are STILL making excuses about their loss in sb 52! And I guarantee you if I went on a Pat’s article and talked trash about Edelman, I bet all you Pat’s fans would talk about how great he is and hes a future hall of famer, but for the sake of your argument you wanna act like brady has no wrs? He also has 1st round wr harry and a speedster like dorsett at the position and also has sanu. Stop it with brady not having any wrs. They might not be the best, but they’re above average and clearly better than what wentz is working with.
