Jordan Howard to return for Eagles in Week 17
The Philadelphia Eagles will get a boost to their offense for their crucial Week 17 game against the New York Giants.
Jordan Howard, who has not played since Week 9 with a stinger injury, will return this week, which led Philadelphia to release running back Jay Ajayi.
Eagles are releasing RB Jay Ajayi today, per source. They are getting RB Jordan Howard back this week.

While Miles Sanders has picked up the slack in recent weeks, Howard’s return will be welcome. He had 525 yards and nine touchdowns before going down at the start of November.
The Eagles are very low on offensive weapons due to an incredible amount of injuries. They have at least one big name lined up to return, but it will still be a couple weeks before that can happen. Howard, however, will be available this week for a game that may make or break the Eagles’ playoff hopes.
