Mathews (concussion/groin) is active for Sunday's game against the Bills.
EDGE Analysis
Mathews' availability was never in much doubt after he practiced fully Thursday and Friday and was given a probable designation heading into the weekend, but it remains unclear what kind of role he might fill Sunday. The Eagles and coach Chip Kelly appear inclined to explore other options at running back rather than free-agent flop DeMarco Murray, who saw only eight of the Eagles' 38 running-back carries last week against the Patriots and could rank fourth on the depth chart for Sunday's game, according to's Ian Rapoport. In accordance with Murray's role being de-emphasized, the Eagles figure to deploy a running back platoon that could be headed by either Darren Sproles or Mathews, leaving only limited snaps for Murray and Kenjon Barner. Because of his expected uptick in carries along with his prowess as a receiver, Sproles looks like the most appealing weekly option of any of the Eagles' backs, but those in deeper leagues may still be able to wring some value out of Mathews.
