Ryan Mathews has groin injury

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

Eagles HC Chip Kelly said Monday that RB Ryan Mathews hurt his groin on a 22-yard run in the first half of the game. The injury wasn’t enough to sit him down for the rest of the night, but Kelly said that the team monitored his snaps closely the rest of the way as a result.

Fantasy Impact: 

It answers the question, somewhat, as to why Mathews wasn't in the game as much despite again outproducing DeMarco Murray. Kelly, on a morning sports talk interview with 94 WIP, said RB coach Duce Staley was responsible for the RB rotations when asked why Mathews didn't play much after his long TD run. The Birds have a Week 8 bye before taking on the Cowboys in Week 9.
