Which running backs have been linked to the Philadelphia Eagles?

Despite how good this running back is, it's the final year of his current contract and Philadelphia could look to the draft for a replacement instead of paying the man.

After the news of Ajayi's injury came down on Monday afternoon, Derrick Gunn of NBCS Philadelphia reported that while the Eagles have been connected to Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell, don't be surprised if they inquire on Arizona Cardinals running back David Johnson. He has gained 150 rushing yards on 25 attempts with a touchdown along with 10 catches for 96 receiving yards and a touchdown.

The four-year veteran has rushed for 184 yards on 45 carries this season, reaching the end zone three times.

The Boise State product was traded to Philadelphia from Miami midway through the 2018 season.




It's unclear exactly when Ajayi suffered the injury, or if it limited him against the Vikings.

According to ESPN, Ajayi tore his ACL.

What a blow to a team that needs help in the backfield. With a game Thursday, it could be tricky for the Eagles, Rapoport noted. They're going to need to revamp their running attack before then.
