The first one is you have your franchise RB out there playing hard sending a message for next year. He clearly is the best player
on this team.
The other one is that right now the eagles have nothing to play for. You don't want him to sustain an injury at the
end of the season and be out next year ala Brandon graham. Benefits here are you get reps to your backup who needs them
and you further evaluate his potential for next year.

There's a protocol in place and that protocol includes a certain amount of risk the players are willing to assume, but there's no need to trot him out there in a lost season with 2 games left. The thing about concussions is limiting his carries doesn't help him. If he gets one carry and it involves a helmet to helmet hit, we might be talking about whether he's cleared to start practicing in training camp. It's just not worth it.
The risk of re-injury is there and it happens all the time. Not worth it.
