News: Polk (hamstring) will not play in Thursday's preseason game versus the Steelers, CSN Philadelphia reports. Impact: Polk hasn't practiced in more than three weeks since suffering a Grade 2 partial tear of his hamstring. That time will cost him a third preseason game Thursday, although Polk expects to return to practice next week. Whenever he does take the field next, Polk will face fresh competition at running back, as the Eagles traded for ex-Panther Kenjon Barner on Tuesday.(RotoWire, )

News: Polk (hamstring) did not participate in Thursday's morning walkthrough, csnphilly.com reports. Impact: The same applies to fellow running backs Matthew Tucker and David Fluellen, with the trio unlikely to play in Friday's preseason contest against the Patriots. Assuming that's the case, Henry Josey figures to be in line for added reps (behind LeSean McCoy and Darren Sproles) on Friday.(RotoWire, )

News: Polk (hamstring) did not play in Friday's preseason opener against the Bears. Impact: Polk is No. 3 on the depth chart behind LeSean McCoy and Darren Sproles, which essentially puts the third-year player one injury away from a significant workload, as Sproles had more receptions than carries in his final two seasons with the Saints. Matthew Tucker, who is firmly entrenched at No. 4 on the depth chart according to head coach Chip Kelly, carried eight times for 40 yards and two touchdowns while working with the second-team offense in Friday's game. The strong outing doesn't make Tucker a threat to Polk's standing, but it could be something to keep an eye on, particularly if Polk's seemingly-minor hamstring issue lingers.(RotoWire, )
