Another Eagles game, another Eagles loss, another Eagles injury. This season has been an endless cycle of terrible things happening. During yesterday's overtime loss to the Cowboys, running back Corey Clement left the game with a knee injury that looked pretty gruesome.
A report today from NFL Network's Ian Rapoport says that Clement is believed to have "only" suffering a knee sprain.
If the report ends up being true, then Clement will have escaped luckily without a serious injury. The team is preparing to be without Clement for some time though, as Rapoport is also reporting the team is expected to bring in a new running back in Clement's place.
Scott appears to be a spin-off of Darren Sproles. The 5'6, 199 lbs running back had 2,147 Yards From Scrimmage in college, and averaged 6.4 Yards Per Carry and scored 15 total Touchdowns. If the Eagles end up being eliminated from playoff contention in the next week or two, players like Scott and Josh Adams might get a lot more playing time to see if they could be key players for next season.
Clement was just coming around after dealing with a lingering quad injury most of the season. He'll likely miss at least the next game or two, but if (when) the Eagles are eliminated from playoff contention, Doug Pederson will probably hold him out from Week 17's game regardless so he doesn't reaggrevate his injury heading into the offseason.
