Kenneth Gainwell Puts In Limited Practice

Thursday, September 21, 7:40 PM

Philadelphia Eagles running back Kenneth Gainwell (ribs) was listed as a limited participant in the team's first practice of the week on Thursday. Meanwhile, fellow RB Boston Scott was held out with a concussion. Gainwell was surprisingly the Eagles' lead runner in the season-opening win over the New England Patriots, but he picked up a rib injury in that contest and was inactive in last Thursday's win over the Minnesota Vikings. The 24-year-old looks to be in good shape to return on Monday night for a Week 3 matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but there's no guarantee he'll see as much work as he did in Week 1 after D'Andre Swift had 28 carries for 175 yards and a touchdown last Thursday.

Brian Robinson Jr. Could Be A Top Option In Week 3

Friday, September 22, 4:36 PM

Washington Commanders running back Brian Robinson Jr. has been off and running to start the 2023 season. Through the first two weeks of the season, the second-year back is eighth in rushing yards and tied for second in total touchdowns. He could have a solid game on the way as well with the Buffalo Bills on the schedule and inclement weather on the way. The D.C. area is reported to be a likely destination for heavy rain and wind on Sunday. If that indeed occurs, the Commanders may have to turn to a run-heavy approach which favors Robinson's outlook. Based on his recent performances and the upcoming environment, Robinson is a low-end RB1 or a high-end RB2 in Week 3.
