Ajayi done for season with reported torn ACL

Jay Ajayi is out for the season with a torn ACL

That automatically fueled rumors of a trade for Le'Veon Bell, but ESPN's Adam Schefter and Chris Mortensen reported that is not Philadelphia's plan.

One of the top running backs, Steelers LeVeon Bell, may get traded even with his return set for Week 7.

Another important deadline is October 30, the date by which National Football League teams can make in-season trades.

The season, and possibility the entire tenure with the Eagles, is now over for Ajayi, who is in the a year ago of his contract.

So many are thinking the best move for the Eagles is to trade for Bell especailly after they restructured Fletcher Cox's contract. An original second-round pick of the Eagles back in 2009, Shady spent six seasons with the team. Darren Sproles hasn't played since the season opener and Corey Clement has been out each of the last two weeks, so Wendell Smallwood might be the leading tailback on a short week against the Giants this Thursday.

The new deal creates $6.5 million more cap space for the Eagles this season and $11.7 million more for next season. If they were to add another running back, then they might have a decision to make. Players at that position now without a contract include Mike Gillislee, Orleans Darkwa, Terrance West and Christine Michael. At 2-3, there is some panic in the City of Brotherly Love that there is a Super Bowl hangover.

The Eagles announced they placed Ajayi on the injured reserve, but did not give specifics on the injury.
