Kenneth Gainwell Continues to Become Favorite to Lead Eagles' RB Room

Eagles beat reporter Bo Wulf echoed recent reports that Kenneth Gainwell has ascended to the top spot on the Eagles' depth chart, going as far as saying that Gainwell will “end up playing the most because he is the most reliable.”

The possibility of Gainwell starting the year as the No. 1 back would be one of the most surprising developments of the offseason, considering that the Eagles went out of their way to trade for D’Andre Swift during the draft and signed Rashaad Penny in free agency.

However, reports have indicated that Gainwell’s momentum is stemming from his familiarity with the system and reliability over the past two years – which leaves the door open for either Swift or Penny to establish roles for themselves during the season.
