PHILADELPHIA– The Eagles have lost the team’s leading rusher for the season.

On Monday, the team announced that RB Jay Ajayi will be out for the rest of the season with a torn ACL.

Ajayi, 25, leads the team with 184 yards on the ground and three scores.

Acquired in a mid season with the Miami Dolphins in 2017, Ajayi provided a spark and power run option to an offense that rolled to a Super Bowl win.

This year, Ajayi fractured a bone in his back before suffering the season-ending knee injury while blocking during a passing play on Sunday.

He is set to be a free agent at season’s end.

The team placed Ajayi on Injured Reserve and claimed DT T.Y. McGill off waivers from the Los Angeles Chargers.
