And what if the Eagles pull off a similar move they made a year ago by trading for a running back?
Following the announcement of the injury, there had initially been a buzz that the Eagles could revisit talks to possibly bring aboard the All-Pro running back this season. The Eagles announced Monday that they placed him on injured reserve with a knee injury suffered in Sunday's loss to the Vikings, and multiple National Football League journalists reported that Ajayi had torn the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee. He has gained 150 rushing yards on 25 attempts with a touchdown along with 10 catches for 96 receiving yards and a touchdown.
Ajayi is now in his second year with the Eagles after spending three seasons with the Miami Dolphins.

Enable wins Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe; on to Breeders' Cup?
Enable and Frankie Dettori (rail) hold off Sea of Class for a repeat victory in the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe. Without doubt Enable is the best filly I have ridden and she could write history on Sunday.
It's unclear exactly when Ajayi suffered the injury, or if it limited him against the Vikings.
Eagles executive Howie Roseman loves to make a deal, highlighted by last year's trade with Miami for Ajayi after Darren Sproles tore his ACL. Not only did they lose the NFC Championship rematch at home, but they also lost their starting running back, Jay Ajayi. Philadelphia is just 2-3 comping off of its Super Bowl-winning campaign. With a game Thursday, it could be tricky for the Eagles, Rapoport noted.
