With only five days to prepare for his first game with the Eagles, running back Jay Ajayi took 17 offensive snaps and logged eight carries while learning only a limited sampling of plays. Ajayi benefited from the bye week coming after the trade, and his workload is expected to grow Sunday against the rival Dallas Cowboys with two full weeks between games.

“I look at our game plan for this week, there’s probably not a play on there I wouldn’t feel comfortable putting his number on, as far as him learning it and knowing what to do,” offensive coordinator Frank Reich said Tuesday.
