Eagles RBs Ajayi & Sproles out Sunday v Colts

Carson Wentz will make his much-awaited return at quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, but they will be without two of their running backs against the Indianapolis Colts. The Eagles announced on Friday that both starting running back Jay Ajayi (back) and backup Darren Sproles (hamstring) will be unavailable. Third-year back Wendell Smallwood and rookie Josh Adams are fourth and fifth on the depth chart.

NFL notebook: Decision on Mayfield won't come until next week

No. 1 overall pick Baker Mayfield gave Cleveland just its second win in 38 games on Thursday night, but Browns coach Hue Jackson isn't ready to anoint him the starter just yet. "It was a short week, not a lot of practice time, and you would think he took all the reps." Mayfield relieved a concussed Tyrod Taylor and rallied the Browns from a 14-point deficit past the visiting New York Jets for a 21-17 win -- ending a 19-game winless streak. Mayfield, in his NFL debut, finished 17 of 23 for 201 yards in a little over one half of work for the Browns (1-1-1), who tallied their first victory since Dec. 24, 2016.
