Ajayi done for season with reported torn ACL

Jay Ajayi #26 of the Philadelphia Eagles runs with the ball while defended by Kendrick Lewis #28 of the Tennessee Titans in the third quarter at Nissan Stadium on September 30, 2018 in Nashville, Tennessee.

This week, Jay Ajayi was the latest victim of the injury bug after it was announced on Monday the running back would miss the remainder of the season after suffering a torn ACL against the Minnesota Vikings, putting the team in a hard position.

He was placed on injured reserve by Philadelphia on Monday afternoon. Philadelphia could certainly fit the latter part of the bill, and the team was willing to trade a fourth-round pick to the Dolphins past year for a lesser back in Ajayi.

Lancet report flags mental health "crisis", failure to address it
Here are some statistics that give you an idea of just how prevalent mental health conditions are among the Australian population. One in five Australians experience a mental illness each year, with many close to them also impacted.

The offense moved the ball 67 yards in eight plays, five of which came on the ground.

It's unclear exactly when Ajayi suffered the injury, or if it limited him against the Vikings. But how much leverage would they have to get a deal done on favorable terms if they were come right out and say, "Yeah, we want him"? By using so-called Not Likely to Be Earned Incentives, the Eagles could dangle significant extra compensation to Bell for 2018 based on workload and performance, which then would hit the cap in 2019. It would take some doing on the part of the team, the player and his current squad across the state in Pittsburgh, but the delicious possibility became the talk of the league, at least online. Philadelphia is just 2-3 comping off of its Super Bowl-winning campaign. Not only did they lose the NFC Championship rematch at home, but they also lost their starting running back, Jay Ajayi.
