It's a fitting symbol for the Eagles' running back, whose nickname is the "Jay Train", someone the Eagles could end up riding on in their playoff game Saturday against the Atlanta Falcons. Enough time for Ajayi to feel like he's got all the energy in the world for the Falcons.
"I feel good. I've been working diligently with the training staff doing my usual routine of just making sure I feel fresh for the games", Ajayi said on Wednesday at the NovaCare Complex. "It's been a long season, but I'm only hoping it's longer than this and that we continue to move forward".
"I've felt good", Ajayi said.
In his seven games with the Eagles after being acquired just before the trade deadline in a deal with Miami, Ajayi has 70 rushing attempts and 10 receptions. He averaged 5.8 yards per carry (408 yards and a touchdown) and added 91 yards and a score in the receiving game.
The workload was a far cry from what Ajayi experienced in Miami.
Ajayi and the Eagles will also have a chance to silence their critics.
His rushing performance against the Falcons earlier this year was an impressive display of physical football by both Ajayi and the Dolphins' offensive line. He's here to win.
In the other NFC Divisional pairing, the Vikings, who had a bye last weekend, will host the New Orleans Saints (Sunday, 4:40 p.m.), who defeated the Carolina Panthers at home 31-26 in a wild-card game last Sunday. This is the team that's in the way of what we want to accomplish. They've paid attention to a knee injury that Ajayi suffered in 2011 (a torn right ACL) and that hurt him when it came time for the NFL Draft in 2015.
All of that work for and with Ajayi seems to have paid off as he's bouncy with a playoff date only a couple of days away.
"It just kind of became my persona on the field where I'm kind of a nice guy off the field, real chill", he said.
Now that it's here, it's a pretty good bet that Ajayi's touches will go up, especially against an Atlanta team that he has already gashed this season.
"When we're successful, the running back room is successful because we're helping keep the tempo of the game, keeping the defense off the field, making big plays", Ajayi said.
"My first experience at the Linc was fantastic when I first got here at that Broncos game", Ajayi said. "I just know if it's going to be anything better than that ..." Philly, I know they're going to show out and it's going to be insane. "We believe in what we have and who we have and that's just been our mindset".
The intensity has ramped up this week, of course. The playoffs are here, and the Eagles intend to stick around for some time. Ajayi figures to play a significant role if the Eagles want to stress the running game. He's shown he has durability and the skills to take it to the house for the offense.
"I was a redshirt sophomore and I was starting, and I was looking for that little alter ego on the field to go with that persona to just kind of take my game to the next level. Sometimes the hardest things are just the simple things, like basically get out of your own head and go play the game you know how to play".
