Corey Clement: No offensive role Sunday

Clement didn't play an offensive snap during Sunday's 30-16 loss to the Packers.

Analysis: The 26-year-old has two carries for 11 yards and a touchdown while playing only five offensive snaps since Miles Sanders returned Week 10. Clement should continue to see sporadic offensive opportunities while Sanders and Boston Scott remain healthy.

Corey Clement: Lifted from COVID list

The Eagles activated Clement from the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday, Daniel Gallen of The Harrisburg Patriot-News reports.

Analysis: Clement was a high-risk close contact when he was placed on the list. The 26-year-old running back will be available for Monday's game against the Seahawks. The Wisconsin product isn't expected to play much if Boston Scott (abdomen) is active.

Corey Clement: Moves to COVID list

Clement was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday.

Analysis: Upon discovering Thursday morning that a player within the organization tested positive for COVID-19, Philadelphia shifted a total of five players to the inactive list -- including fellow depth skill-position players J.J. Arcega-Whiteside and John Hightower. The 26-year-old Clement has not been heavily integrated into the offense this season, collecting 19 rush attempts and four receptions over his nine appearances. He missed 12 games last year after being placed on IR with a shoulder injury.

Corey Clement: Just one snap Sunday

Clement rushed once for five yards in Sunday's 27-17 loss to the Giants.

Analysis: Clement is primarily a special-teams player with Miles Sanders now back healthy. Even in the three games this season in which the 26-year-old has seen double-digit snaps, he has failed to top six carries or 24 rushing yards.

Corey Clement: Gets six touches in win

Clement rushed five times for 24 yards and caught one of his two targets for four yards in Sunday's 23-9 win over Dallas.

Analysis: Clement saw at least 18 snaps on offense for the second straight week with Miles Sanders still nursing a knee issue. As expected, Boston Scott still significantly outpaced the Wisconsin product with more than double the playing time and touches. He'll likely revert to a role primarily on special teams if Sanders is healthy coming out of the Eagles' bye in Week 9.

Corey Clement: Gets three touches in win

Clement rushed twice for nine yards and caught his lone target for 12 yards in Thursday's 22-21 win over the Giants.

Analysis: Clement saw just 18 snaps on offense even with Miles Sanders inactive due to a knee injury. Boston Scott worked as the lead back in the win, playing 56 total snaps on offense. It doesn't look like Clement will see much action unless both Sanders and Scott are forced to miss time.

Corey Clement: Sees light use Week 6

Clement failed to corral his lone target in Sunday's 30-28 loss to the Ravens.

Analysis: Clement played seven offensive snaps in the contest, his most since the Eagles' Week 1 loss to Washington, when Miles Sanders was sidelined with a hamstring injury. Sanders exited Sunday's contest midway through the third quarter with a knee injury that's expected to keep him out for 1-to-2 weeks, paving the way for Clement to see a slightly expanded workload Week 7 in a Thursday night matchup with the Giants. That said, Boston Scott is likely to operate as the lead option in the Eagles' backfield committee while Sanders is out, so Clement probably can't be counted on to take on double-digit touches if the game proves to be reasonably competitive throughout.

Corey Clement: Two carries in win

Clement rushed twice for three yards in Sunday's 25-20 win over San Francisco.

Analysis: Clement saw just four snaps in the win. The good news for the Wisconsin product is that at least he has a good shot to get the ball when in the game. The downside is that he has been on the field for a grand total of 13 offensive plays over the last three games.

Corey Clement: Sees just six snaps Sunday

Clement rushed three times for eight yards in Sunday's 23-23 tie with the Bengals.

Analysis: Clement once again played sparingly behind Miles Sanders and saw just six snaps on offense, seven fewer than Boston Scott. Perhaps his most notable contribution to the game was an unnecessary roughness penalty on a second-quarter punt that set the Bengals up at the Eagles' 38-yard line, enabling Cincinnati to kick a field goal just five plays later for their first points of the game. With Sanders healthy, the 25-year-old looks like he'll primarily be a special-teams contributor for the foreseeable future.

Corey Clement: Resumes practicing in full

Clement (illness) was a full participant in Thursday's practice.

Analysis: Clement was held out of Wednesday's practice entirely due to an illness, but he's already managed to return in full capacity. He'll suit up as Philadelphia's third running back, behind Miles Sanders and Boston Scott, versus the Bengals on Sunday.

September 24, 2020 2:39 PM EST

Corey Clement: No practice due to illness

Clement did not practice Wednesday due to an illness.

Analysis: Clement should manage to suit up against the Bengals on Sunday as long as he's able to shake his illness before the contest. The 25-year-old didn't see any touches Week 2 with Miles Sanders back in the lineup, so Clement's status won't carry much of a fantasy impact one way or another.

September 23, 2020 2:24 PM EST

Corey Clement: Does little with eight touches

Clement carried six times for 19 yards and caught both his targets for an additional two yards during Sunday's 27-17 loss to Washington.

Analysis: In the absence of Miles Sanders (hamstring), Clement received his first offensive touches since the 2018 season. He averaged an underwhelming 3.2 yards per carry and did next to nothing as a pass catcher, outside of an eight-yard gain. Clement could play a role next Sunday against the Rams if Sanders remains out, but even if he does he seems like a longshot for notable fantasy production.

Corey Clement: Increased duties on tap

Clement is slated for an increased role in Sunday's game versus Washington following news that Miles Sanders (hamstring) has been ruled out, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Analysis: Boston Scott is expected to be the main beneficiary of Sanders' absence, but Clement should garner a decent amount of touches as well. While the 25-year-old running back barely played last year, he's been a formidable depth option and has averaged 4.1 yards per carry in his career while displaying solid pass-catching abilities. He's worth fantasy consideration in deeper formats.

September 12, 2020 3:34 PM EST

Corey Clement: Ready for Sunday

Clement (quadriceps) doesn't have a designation for Sunday's contest in Washington.

Analysis: Limited by a quad injury Thursday, Clement returned as a full participant to close out Week 1 preparations. With starting running back Miles Sanders (hamstring) questionable for Sunday, the possibility exists for some touches to filter down to Boston Scott, Clement and Jason Huntley this weekend.

September 11, 2020 1:11 PM EST

Corey Clement: Quad injury surfaces

Clement was limited in Thursday's practice due to a quadriceps injury.

Analysis: Clement wasn't listed on Wednesday's injury report, a hint that he sustained his quadriceps injury during practice. With Miles Sanders (hamstring) also dealing with an injury, the Eagles could lean on Boston Scott to handle an increased workload in Washington on Sunday.

Corey Clement: Fills in for Sanders and Scott

Clement opened Wednesday's practice as the Eagles' first-team running back, Daniel Gallen of The Harrisburg Patriot-News reports.

Analysis: The report notes that Elijah Holyfield also rotated in with the first-team at times on Wednesday. The reason for the arrangement is that lead back Miles Sanders is week-to-week with a lower body injury, while his top backup Boston Scott is day-to-day with a lower body issue. Injuries derailed Clement's 2019 campaign, but if he looks good while filling in for Sanders and Scott, he'll help his case to secure a complementary role in the team's backfield this season.

Corey Clement: Could reclaim backup role

Clement should have a role for the Eagles this year, Mike Kaye of NJ.com reports.

Analysis: Clement was one of the unexpected heroes of Super Bowl 52, putting up a 4-100-1 receiving line to finish out a rookie season that he'd started as an undrafted special teams player. Injuries then limited him to 15 games the past two years, but he was cleared from shoulder surgery in April when he re-signed with the Eagles on a veteran minimum contract. Running backs coach Duce Staley and special teams coordinator Dave Fipp both praised Clement recently, perhaps hinting at a rebound season for the 25-year-old. While he doesn't have any one skill that stands out, Clement's combination of size, pass-catching competence and special teams experience makes him a sensible choice for the third or fourth RB spot on an NFL roster. He'll likely start training camp as the No. 3 choice behind Miles Sanders and Boston Scott.

Corey Clement: Returning to Philly

Clement signed a one-year contract with the Eagles on Wednesday.

Analysis: Philadelphia opted not to tender the 25-year-old a contract as a restricted free agent in March, but the team is now bringing him back on a more affordable deal. Clement had a solid rookie campaign as an undrafted free agent in 2017, but he's been limited by injury to 15 games over the past two seasons. The Eagles didn't add any running backs during the course of the 2020 NFL Draft, so the Wisconsin product figures to compete for the backup job with Boston Scott behind starter Miles Sanders.

April 29, 2020 3:05 PM EST

Corey Clement: Cleared from shoulder injury

Clement (shoulder) received medical clearance Monday, NJ.com's Mike Kaye reports.

Analysis: The Super Bowl XXXIX hero has struggled with injuries ever since his big moment, limited to 15 games and 259 rushing yards over the past two seasons. Now that he's been cleared from October surgery, the unrestricted free agent hopes to re-sign with the Eagles. Regardless of where he ends up signing, Clement will need to compete for a spot on the 53-man roster, considering he's played nearly as many snaps on special teams (474) as on offense (497) in three NFL seasons.

April 23, 2020 6:49 AM EST

Corey Clement: Hitting open market

Clement (shoulder) is set to become an unrestricted free agent, with the Eagles choosing not extend a contract tender, Jimmy Kempski of PhillyVoice.com reports.

Analysis: The minimum restricted free agent tender costs $2.132 million, which would be a large number for a third/fourth-string running back. Clement was never able to build on the promise of a rookie season that culminated with a huge performance in the Super Bowl, hindered by knee and shoulder injuries the past two years. He's believed to have undergone shoulder surgery in October.
