Shocker: Jay Ajayi is done for the season

"If I remember correctly, we had maybe three carries at the end of the first quarter", Ajayi told reporters postgame.

It's dot-connecting season in the NFL. Jason La Canfora had previously reported that the team was mulling over a trade for Bell.

It would be a homecoming of sorts for McCoy, who spent his first six seasons in the National Football League with Philadelphia. However, there were previously reports from February that stated the Eagles inquired with the Bills in 2017 about trading for McCoy before landing on Ajayi in a trade with the Miami Dolphins. Clement was active during the loss against the Vikings but did not play.

However, this silences that scenario for the time being with Philadelphia looking in another direction with their running back position that already has other injuries with Darren Sproles dealing with a nagging hamstring issue while Corey Clement is on the mend with quad problems.

RUBY ROSE as CW's BATWOMAN
We've known for a while now that Ruby Rose would be heading to Gotham this winter as the CW's very own Batwoman . I guess Barry and Co won't get much rest after their landmark 100th episode airs on December 4.

It's hardly out of the question that the Eagles stand pat with what they have, particularly as they would still have to clear several millions of dollars in salary-cap space to take on Bell's contract. It indicates that they are most likely making a move for a running back.

However, for a team off to a 2-3 start while attempting to defend its Super Bowl title, Bell could be seen as the kind of elite talent who could realistically put Philadelphia back over the top.

Imagine LeSean McCoy coming back to Philly.
