State of the Eagles: Playing time and personnel
The Eagles are still tweaking their roster as they enter Week 5. Here's a look at playing time and personnel groupings on offense and defense so far this season.
As I wrote about earlier this week, McCoy's been on the field for 84 percent of the snaps. McCoy has been very good and can line up in the backfield or out wide. Throw in the fact that the Eagles got no production from Bell, and it's easy to see why he's been on the field so much. It'll be interesting to see how much (if any) his playing time decreases now that Harrison is in the fold.
Maclin's played all but four snaps this season - the most of any of the skill position players. Jackson, of course, missed some time last game with the second-half injury. Avant has played two-thirds of the snaps. He was the second receiver when Jackson was sidelined against the Niners. Cooper didn't play in Week 5, and Hall has only been active for one game.
The tight end numbers are not surprising. Harbor is no longer active on gamedays, and I don't really see that changing unless Celek or Mills gets injured.
Here is a breakdown of the personnel packages the Eagles have utilized:
