The four-time Pro Bowler has been battling a knee issue all season.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — An undrafted rookie who began the season on the practice squad kept the Philadelphia Eagles in the playoff race.
Josh Adams helped the Eagles overcome deficits of 12-0 and 19-3 in a 25-22 victory over the New York Giants that moved the defending Super Bowl champions within one game of the Redskins and Cowboys in the mediocre NFC East.
The Eagles (5-6) host Washington (6-5) next Monday and visit Dallas (6-5) on Dec. 9.
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Darren Sproles returned to practice Wednesday for the Philadelphia Eagles after missing seven games because of a hamstring injury.
The veteran running back is expected to play Sunday night against the Dallas Cowboys, according to coach Doug Pederson. The Eagles have the NFL's 18th-ranked rushing offense after finishing third last season when they won the Super Bowl. They lost starter Jay Ajayi to a season-ending knee injury last month.
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Losing Jay Ajayi means the Philadelphia Eagles will have to turn to a banged-up committee of running backs.
While the front office ponders making a deal to replace Ajayi, the Eagles (2-3) will rely on the group it has Thursday night against the New York Giants (1-4). Only two of the remaining four backs are healthy.
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The Philadelphia Eagles won't have running back Darren Sproles and safety Rodney McLeod for Sunday's game at Tennessee.
Sproles is missing his third straight game with a hamstring injury. McLeod had knee surgery Thursday and it's uncertain whether he'll return this season.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The Philadelphia Eagles have signed running back Matt Jones to a two-year contract and also agreed to terms on four-year deals with all five of their draft picks.
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Eighteen starters in the last Super Bowl were selected in the fourth round or lower, including six players who didn't get a call until the NFL draft was over.
While first-round picks receive most of the attention and players chosen the first two days of the draft get more money and better job security, success on Day 3 of the draft often separates the elite teams from the good ones.
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Nick Foles caught a pass, for a touchdown no less.
Tom Brady had one fall off his fingertips.
The difference in winning and losing? Perhaps not. Still, Foles' Philadelphia Eagles beat Brady's New England Patriots 41-33 in Sunday's Super Bowl. And while the Eagles' stunning trick play worked, the Patriots didn't have the magic.
BLOOMINGTON, Minn. (AP) — The best formula for success against the New England Patriots is to keep Tom Brady on the sideline and harass him when he's on the field.
That's not a news flash. But the good news for Eagles fans and everyone rooting against Brady, Bill Belichick and the Patriots in Sunday's Super Bowl is that Philadelphia has the ingredients to do it.
The Eagles (15-3) have a multidimensional, ball-control offense capable of chewing the clock and forcing No. 12 to be a spectator.
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Carson Wentz tossed four touchdown passes, Corey Clement had three scores, and the Philadelphia Eagles routed the Denver Broncos 51-23 on Sunday.

Brock Osweiler struggled in his first start since returning to the team and the NFL's top-ranked defense was dominated by Carson Wentz and the Philadelphia Eagles.
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Carson Wentz isn't paying attention to his impressive stats.
Wentz tossed four touchdown passes, Corey Clement had three scores, and the Philadelphia Eagles routed the Denver Broncos 51-23 on Sunday.
The second-year quarterback leads the NFL with 23 TD passes, including 17 in the last five games.
"Touchdowns are great, but being 8-1 is what it's all about," Wentz said.
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Fitting Jay Ajayi into a crowded backfield is a good problem for Doug Pederson.
The Philadelphia Eagles upgraded their offense by acquiring Ajayi from Miami this week. Now the coach has to figure out the best way to use him.
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Smash-mouth football is back in Philadelphia.
After relying heavily on Carson Wentz's arm in the first two games, the Eagles (3-1) have become a run-first offense.
"Pound and ground," coach Doug Pederson joked on Monday. "Every week you try to establish you're run game. That's the first thing you try to do. If you can do that, it'll open up play-action pass, it'll open up shots down the field. That's where you want to start."
PHILADELPHIA EAGLES (7-9)
New faces: WRs Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith, CB Ronald Darby, RB LeGarrette Blount, QB Nick Foles, DT Tim Jernigan, DE Chris Long, OL Chance Warmack, CB Patrick Robinson, S Corey Graham; rookies DE Derek Barnett, CB Rasul Douglas, WRs Mack Hollins and Shelton Gibson, RBs Donnel Pumphrey and Corey Clement.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Left tackle Ryan Ramczyk forged a unique path to No. 8 Wisconsin.
In just two seasons, he has gone from starter at a Division III school to a front-line anchor at a Big Ten program known for producing quality offensive linemen. What's more, the junior became an AP All-American in his first year as a starter.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — The first key to executing a successful jet sweep at No. 6 Wisconsin can be summarized in two words by receivers coach Ted Gilmore.
"Run scared," Gilmore said Wednesday.
Speed to beat defenders to the edge and vision to find the right hole help, too. The eighth-ranked Penn State Nittany Lions (10-2, No. 7 CFP) will be watching for the sweep when they face the Badgers (10-2, No. 6 CFP) on Saturday night in Indianapolis in the Big Ten Championship game.
MADISON, Wis. (AP) — A fourth-quarter flourish erased memories of a jittery first half for No. 5 Wisconsin against Minnesota.
The latest installment of the most-played rivalry in major college football ended with a familiar scene: the Badgers triumphantly holding up Paul Bunyan's Axe.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — The running game is shifting into high gear at No. 6 Wisconsin.
Coach Paul Chryst said the team's depth at running back, which helped net 363 yards rushing and four touchdowns in 64 attempts against Illinois last week, is the key to providing more consistency for the offense.
MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Finally, Wisconsin had a breather.
Tested week after week with close games against the Big Ten's tougher teams, the seventh-ranked Badgers assumed the role of playoff contender in beating up on one of the league's weaker squads.
Corey Clement ran for 123 yards and three touchdowns, Dare Ogunbowale added 103 yards on seven carries and Wisconsin's defense intercepted Illinois quarterback Jeff George Jr. four times in rolling to a 48-3 win on Saturday.
EVANSTON, Ill. (AP) — It wasn't just about building on a huge victory and a return to the Top 10 for No. 8 Wisconsin. The Badgers wanted to end their recent struggles against Northwestern.
To that end, they also succeeded.
Corey Clement ran for 106 yards and a touchdown, Jazz Peavy scored on a 46-yard run and Wisconsin beat Northwestern 21-7 on Saturday.
EVANSTON, Ill. (AP) — Coming off a tight victory and a return to the Top 10, No. 8 Wisconsin has every right to feel good about itself.
The Badgers can also be excused if they're a little nervous given who they play on Saturday.
Wisconsin visits Northwestern, a team that has given the Badgers all sorts of trouble in recent years.
MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Corey Clement is practicing patience as the clock winds down on his college football career.
There are just four games left in his final regular season at Wisconsin, starting with a trip Saturday to face Northwestern.
IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Don't count Wisconsin out of the Big Ten West race just yet.
Corey Clement ran for 134 yards and a touchdown and the 10th-ranked Badgers used a stout defense to beat Iowa 17-9 on Saturday, snapping a two-game skid.
Alex Hornibrook had 197 yards passing for the Badgers (5-2, 2-2 Big Ten), who won for the fourth straight time in Iowa City.
No. 10 Wisconsin (4-2, 1-2 Big Ten) at Iowa (5-2, 3-1), noon (ESPN).
Line: Wisconsin by 3½.
Series Record: Wisconsin leads 44-43-2.
WHAT'S AT STAKE
Quite possibly the Big Ten West title. The winner of the last two meetings between these teams has won the division — and Wisconsin is likely out of the race with a loss. For all its struggles, Iowa is just a half game behind unbeaten Nebraska in the West.
EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) — By the time Alex Hornibrook's first start was over, there wasn't much question about whether he could handle one of the toughest road tests in the Big Ten.
Hornibrook threw for 195 yards and a touchdown, and 11th-ranked Wisconsin turned its early-season showdown with No. 8 Michigan State into a rout, beating the Spartans 30-6 on Saturday.
