One of the top running backs, Steelers LeVeon Bell, may get traded even with his return set for Week 7.
NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported that there is interest in a homecoming for McCoy, but it remains to be seen if the two sides can make a deal work.
Another important deadline is October 30, the date by which National Football League teams can make in-season trades.
In La Canfora's report, he indicated that Pittsburgh was "hopeful" of getting a draft pick higher than the third round in exchange for Bell and of being able to ship him to the NFC, if anywhere. A person familiar with the situation says Ajayi tore an ACL and will miss the rest of the season.
Jay Ajayi #26 of the Philadelphia Eagles runs with the ball during the first quarter at Nissan Stadium on September 30, 2018 in Nashville, Tennessee. Corey Clement has had nagging issues on and off for the last few weeks now, and Ajayi becomes no longer available as he was sent to the Injured Reserve. They're going to need to revamp their running attack before then.
