"First and foremost, Darren Sproles Jerseyswe are glad that Ryan is healthy and has been cleared to return to football activities but given the current state of our running back position, we feel like it is best for both sides to go in a different direction. We wish him all the best as he continues his career."

He will share the load in Philly with a group that is expected to include 34-year-old Darren Sproles, Connor Barwin Jerseyssecond-year back Wendell Smallwood and rookie Donnel Pumphrey.
