Chris Polk trying to establish himself


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/12/2014) Eagles coach Chip Kelly likes what he sees from running back Chris Polk, reports ESPN. Polk is expected to be the primary backup for LeSean McCoy this season.

"He did [produce] and he's really had a great offseason," Kelly said. "He worked extremely hard rehabbing his shoulders but he was one of our key special-teams players for us and starting to you look at from probably the Detroit game on, he had a couple really big runs in that game and starting to develop as a back and just trying to figure it out again where he fits in that piece. Obviously we have a talented one in LeSean, and then when you add [Darren] Sproles to the mix, where does Chris fit into it? But I think in terms of what has he done in the offseason, I think he's really put himself in the picture."

Polk vows to do anything he can to contribute. 

"We're all just going out there and putting our best foot forward, and adding another great player [like Sproles] to our running back room, that just making everyone better," Polk said. "I feel like I can be a great factor. We'll see how things play out. We have Sproles, LeSean, myself, a couple of new guys. The only thing that I can do is control what I can control, and that's my effort, attitude and what I put on tape. If I do what I know I’m capable of, then I know I’ll be playing."


Chris Polk had 'major' shoulder surgery


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/24/2014) Eagles running back Chris Polk underwent "major" shoulder surgery this week, reports ESPN's Adam Caplan. The procedure makes it less likely the Eagles will trade running back Bryce Brown, according to the report.

The Eagles have not confirmed the surgery took place.


Report: Chip Kelly prefers Chris Polk to Bryce Brown


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/25/2014) Eagles coach Chip Kelly prefers Chris Polk's running style to Bryce Brown's and sees Polk "as a better complement" to running back LeSean McCoy, reports the Philadelphia Inquirer. Polk is more of a north-south runner, and Kelly likes that he "wastes so few yards."

If Brown is traded, Polk would be in for a major increase in touches.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Little-used Chris Polk shines bright in dark day for Eagles


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/29/2013) When a player with no rushes and no receptions on the season receives extensive playing time, you know your team is in trouble.

Such was the case with the Eagles and running back Chris Polk on Sunday. The Eagles were indeed in trouble in their 52-20 pounding in Denver and they turned to Polk, who not only gave them some reps, but also a 4-yard touchdown run in the second quarter while LeSean McCoy was cooling his heels on the sideline.

Polk finished with three carries for 33 yards, including a 28-yard burst, and added two catches for 29 yards.

It remains to be seen if his encouraging performance leads to more playing time next Sunday on the road against the New York Giants.
