Eagles running back Jordan Howard was activated from the Reserve/COVID-19 list Monday, the team announced.
Howard and several other Eagles players were placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list early last week, but most of them were activated from the list on Monday. Howard is also dealing with a shoulder injury and was unlikely to play in a meaningless Week 18 game even if not on the COVID list.
The Eagles placed Jordan Howard on the Reserve/COVID-19 list on Monday.
Howard presumably tested positive for COVID-19, as Tom Pelissero reported that roughly a dozen Eagles players tested positive prior to being placed on the list. Howard still has time to clear protocol and be activated from the list prior to Saturday's game against the Cowboys, but unless Boston Scott (who is also on the Reserve/COVID-19 list) is unable to play in the game, fantasy managers will want to avoid Howard in any event.
Eagles running back Jordan Howard carried the ball 11 times for just 26 yards in Sunday's win over the Washington Football Team.
Howard was questionable with a stinger coming into the game and did not appear to be 100% on Sunday as he took a back seat to Boston Scott in the running game.
Philadelphia Eagles running back Jordan Howard (neck) is officially active and will play in Sunday's game against the Washington Football Team.
As expected, Howard will play in Sunday's game after being limited in practice this week with a neck stinger. The 27-year-old rushed for 69 yards on 15 carries in his last game as the Eagles lead back versus Washington. He is expected to split the Eagles backfield with Kenneth Gainwell and Boston Scott. Howard is considered an RB3/flex against a Washington defense that has been gashed through the ground recently and is 32nd among all running backs in the latest FantasyPros expert consensus rankings.
Eagles RB Jordan Howard (stinger) is expected to play in Sunday's Week 17 game vs the Washington Football Team.
Already without RB Miles Sanders due to a broken bone in his hand, the Philadelphia backfield should see split responsibilities between Howard and teammate Boston Scott in a matchup against a Washington defense that allows the sixteenth-most points to opposing RBs on the season. Both players figure to be flex considerations for fantasy managers with the edge to Scott in point per reception scoring.
