The Eagles’ leading rusher is back on the field.

Philadelphia coach Doug Pederson said today that Ryan Mathews, who missed the last two games with a knee injury, is good to go and will practice today.

Mathews leads the Eagles with 102 carries for 427 yards and seven touchdowns this season, and with Mathews out the last two games Philadelphia’s offense has struggled in losses to the Packers and Bengals. The Eagles will hope that the return of Mathews gets the offense back on track on Sunday against Washington.

Unfortunately, the Eagles’ offense is down two other starters: wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham (rib) and right tackle Halapoulivaati Vaitai (knee) are both out of practice today.
