NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported that there is interest in a homecoming for McCoy, but it remains to be seen if the two sides can make a deal work.
Redskins vs. Saints - Game Recap
Chris Thompson has a rib injury he suffered on the two point conversion attempt in the fourth quarter. Receiver Paul Richardson Jr. stained his knee and tight end Vernon Davis had a hamstring injury.
Ajayi was reportedly injured in the Eagles' 23-21 loss to the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday.
The Boise State product was traded to Philadelphia from Miami midway through the 2018 season. Well, the Eagles are at least semi-interested, it appears. Speculation also has connected the Eagles to disgruntled Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell. Ajayi totaled 873 rushing yards last season, playing seven games for both the Eagles and Dolphins. A falling out with then-head coach Chip Kelly brought a trade to Buffalo, but Howie Roseman has been back in a prominent personnel role and a different head coach should eliminate any lingering ill will from McCoy. Furthermore, Darren Sproles has missed the last four games with a hamstring injury and Corey Clement, who is expected to play this week, missed the last two games with a quad injury.
Adding either Johnson or Bell would take a serious hit to the Eagles payroll this year and beyond.
