Eagles add RB Jordan Howard to practice squad

Jordan Howard is getting another chance in Philadelphia.

Howard, the veteran running back who failed miserably as a free agent signing with the Dolphins this year, has signed with the Eagles’ practice squad.

Related players: Miles Sanders, Boston Scott, Corey Clement

Fantasy Impact: 

Ordinarily, a player with Howard’s level of experience wouldn’t be eligible for the practice squad. But new rules this year allow teams to add veterans with any amount of experience to the practice squad, so Howard can join the Eagles now, with an eye toward playing on their active roster at some point this season. The Eagles do lack a between-the-tackles runner, so Howard could be a fit. He likely won't take too much away from the workloads of Sanders and Scott, and could be more of a replacement for Clement who continues to battle injuries.
