Eagles looking to activate emergency running back in Week 4 matchup vs. Jaguars
The Eagles could be activating some reinforcements in the backfield on Sunday.
RB Boston Scott has been out of practice this week with a rib injury, and all signs point to Scott missing the Week 4 matchup vs. Jacksonville. This would leave Miles Sanders and Kenneth Gainwell as the only active backs, but that could soon change.

The Eagles claimed former 49ers running back Trey Sermon prior to the season and are free to activate him on Sunday if they choose to. Sermon, 6’0″, 215 lbs, was a 3rd-round pick in last year’s draft and played with Jalen Hurts in Oklahoma.
Playing his final season at Ohio State, Sermon rushed for nearly 3,000 yards and 26 TDs in college. He currently holds OSU’s single-game rushing record at 331 yards set in the 2020 Big 10 Championship game. Sermon totaled 167 rushing yards and one TD during his rookie season with the 49ers.
