Eagles snap counts: Rookie skill guys make most of their chances

Mack Hollins and Corey Clement had two of the Eagles' biggest offensive plays in the 34-24 win over Washington on Monday night. 

Neither player was on the field that much. 

Hollins caught a 64-yard touchdown pass in the first half but played just eight total snaps. He has six catches on the year on 70 total snaps. 

Clement caught a nine-yard touchdown in the second half. That was one of just 12 plays on the night for him. He also had one carry. 

In his return after a two-game absence, Wendell Smallwood had 24 snaps (37 percent). He looked decent in the run game, gaining 25 yards on eight carries. He also caught two passes for 14 yards. LeGarrette Blount led the way for the Eagles' running backs with 25 snaps. He carried the ball on 14 of them. Kenjon Barner got four snaps. 

Jason Peters played 36 snaps before going down with a knee injury. Halapoulivaati Vaitai finished the game with 30 (one came as an extra tackle before Peters' injury). 

After Torrey Smith had more snaps than Nelson Agholor in each of the first three games, Agholor has had more than Smith in the last four. Agholor has earned it. On Monday, he played 47 to Smith's 41. 

On defense, two starting linemen didn't play a whole lot. Vinny Curry played just 27 snaps (42 percent) and Tim Jernigan played just 17 (27 percent). Jernigan's snap numbers have been way down the last two weeks. He got just 25 against Carolina. Beau Allen has played more than him both weeks. 

Meanwhile, Derek Barnett played a good amount on Monday — 36 snaps (56 percent. He got the first two solo sacks of his young career. 

Jordan Hicks played just two snaps before he left the game with his injury. Nigel Bradham didn't leave the field, playing all 64 snaps. Najee Goode played 49 and Joe Walker came in on their base defense to play 11.

Eric Rowe tracker
We are keeping an eye on Rowe in New England all season. If he plays more than 50 percent of the Patriots' defensive snaps this season, that 2018 fourth-round pick the Eagles got in exchange for him will turn into a third-rounder. 

This ain't happening. Rowe missed another game this week with that groin injury. 

Week 1: 37 of 69 snaps
Week 2: 34 of 65 snaps
Week 3: 0 of 71 snaps
Week 4: 19 of 63 snaps 
Week 5: 0 of 72 snaps
Week 6: 0 of 76 snaps
Week 7: 0 of 57 snaps

2017: 90 of 473 (19 percent)
