Running back Jordan Howard will not suit up for the Eagles on Sunday against the New England Patriots. He was listed as questionable after being limited all week in practice with a shoulder injury. Rookie Miles Sanders will start at running back. He has opened the game at running back already four times this season. The Eagles also have Boston Scott and Jay Ajayi, who is active after signing with the team on Friday. Ajayi hasn't played since tearing his ACL on October 7, 2018 against the Vikings at Lincoln Financial Field. In addition to Howard, linebacker Nigel Bradham (ankle) and wide receiver Alshon Jeffery (ankle) are out due to injury. This is the fourth straight game that Bradham will miss.
