Eagles Inactives: Zach Ertz out vs. Broncos; Jay Ajayi to play

However, against a Broncos' defense that entered Sunday as the NFL's No. 2 rushing defense and No. 1 total defense, Ajayi made the Eagles look like the most complete team in the league.

Philadelphia Eagles running back Jay Ajayi is expected to play 10-15 snaps against the Denver Broncos in Week 9, reports Jay Glazer of FOX Sports. But, for now I'd sit him and see what happens this week. He received a loud ovation from the home crowd when he took his first carry in an Eagles uniform 6 yards early in the second quarter.

The Eagles' inactives are Ertz, cornerback Ronald Darby, wide receiver Shelton Gibson, offensive tackle Taylor Hart, defensive end Steven Means, Elijah Qualls, Nate Sudfeld.

Jay Ajayi's trade from the Dolphins to the Eagles caught most fantasy football owners by surprise, and while the trade might be good for his long-term value, there are plenty of questions about his short-term role. He comes from an offense that uses very similar terminology, so he's familiar with that.

Only five days removed from his move from Miami to Philadelphia, Ajayi will be a part of the game plan in his first opportunity to do so.

"He's a violent runner". "He's got a great one-cut move back to the inside".
