Eagles RB Ryan Mathews (ankle) took full practice reps again Thursday. Mathews experienced soreness in both of his ankles in Week 3, rushing only twice for -5 yards against the Steelers. He found the endzone three times in the first two games, but only played 29% of the snaps in Week 2 (when he had nine carries for 32 yards and two touchdowns against the Bears). HC Doug Pederson said that Mathews’ health is better and that he remains the starter. Wendell Smallwood looked pretty good (17 carries, 79 yards, TD) against Pittsburgh, while Kenjon Barner also found the end zone (eight carries, 42 yards, TD) against the Steelers. Darren Sproles also has 22 touches over the past two games, so this is shaping up to be a full-blown committee with Mathews the most likely to see the lion’s share of the carries.
