Caplan said last night that it won't be long until Clement is in the mix.

He thought if not this week, then the NYG game would be when Clement sees action.

Caplan is pretty tuned in. I wouldn't be surprised if Clement turned into our feature back at some point this season.

This does not sound like the draft review of a feature back, especially with 4.68 40 speed.

However, if Blount does not produce, Clement could take some reps away in non-short-yardage situations.

I liked that Clement was a willing blocker in blitz pickup situations in preseason. Jaws and Caplin talked about Blount's lack of willingness and effort in such situations, and that is at 250 lbs!

Blount is not going to be a popular player in Philly unless he comes to play on Sunday. Doesn't he realize this is probably his last year in the NFL? Someone ought to pay to have Blount go to lunch with AI so he can learn about Philly

The Eagles did not invest much $ in Blount so if he is only a short-yardage, rotational guy and late 4th quarter hammer, I am fine with that.

I don't expect to see significant reps for Clement in the near future unless there is an injury. I won't be surprised if he gets a few carries just so he'll have some game day experience. RBs get nicked up. You need depth.

I don't know if it would be an earned role or more of something out of necessity. He's a talented guy that didn't have his head on straight. He plays quicker than he does fast/straight line speed.

I'm not saying he's anything special, but he may just be the best back on our roster. If his head is in the game, then maybe he has a chance. The fact that he's showing well on special teams is a good sign with regards to his effort.
