Eight touches in loss
Gainwell rushed six times for 14 yards and caught two of his three targets for 18 yards in Sunday's 17-11 loss to the 49ers.
Like most of the Eagles offense, the rookie was largely contained on the day. The good news is he again operated as the clear top backup for Miles Sanders, as Boston Scott didn't even register a snap on offense. Gainwell should have more room to run in Week 3 against a more forgiving Dallas defense.
