Twenty-eight things to know about Week 2 injuries

The Philadelphia Eagles lost one piece of its backfield.

Running back Donnel Pumphrey, who tore his hamstring in Wednesday's practice, was placed on injured reserve Friday afternoon.

The 5-foot-9 Pumphrey impressed coaches during offseason workouts as a potential weapon in the passing game out of the backfield. The fourth-round rookie struggled in the preseason, however, and was inactive Week 1.

The injury could stymie the rookie's development this season, as well as wipe another option out in the Eagles' running back corps. LeGarrette Blount remains Philly's lead back, with Darren Sproles and Wendell Smallwood as change-of-pace runners. Undrafted rookie Corey Clement could also see an uptick in opportunities with Pumphrey sidelined.

Also, cornerback Ronald Darby (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game versus the Kansas City Chiefs. Safety Corey Graham (hamstring) is questionable.
