The question of whether or not ex-Eagles running back Jay Ajayi will be ready by Week 1 after suffering an ACL tear last October could be tempering interest in a veteran back who averaged a robust 5.1 yards per carry over 11 games with the Eagles in 2017 and ’18.
Presuming Ajayi is able to return to health, he would be a logical fit with the Colts , given his familiarity with head coach Frank Reich. (Reich was Ajayi’s offensive coordinator in Philly, where he was traded by Miami in ’17.)
Only six people in NFL history have more 200-yard rushing games than Ajayi (three), and when he’s 100 percent, he can contribute as both a runner and a receiver.
It would make sense for the Colts to give him a look.
