Head coach Doug Pederson said Wednesday that Mathews remains the Eagles' No. 1 running back, Zach Berman of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
EDGE Analysis
If recent usage is any indication, the top back in Philadelphia would seemingly be Darren Sproles after he galloped for 86 yards on 15 carries Sunday at Dallas. In the same contest, Mathews was contained to four carries for 10 yards on his eight snaps, which is more indicative of player spelling the starter. Alas, Pederson will stick with Mathews for now, perhaps as a means to preserve the slight and aging Sproles.
