Eagles HC Nick Sirianni labeled RB Miles Sanders "week to week" with his ankle injury. Sirianni wouldn't rule Sanders out for Sunday's game vs. the Lions but admitted that he's unlikely to be available for that one. Sanders' absence would leave Philly with RBs Kenneth Gainwell, Boston Scott and potentially Jordan Howard, who's currently on the practice squad.

Eagles RB Miles Sanders suffered a low-ankle sprain in Sunday's loss to the Raiders, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Sanders is still undergoing tests to determine the severity, but Rapoport suggests that it's not a serious injury. We'll update you when we know more.

Eagles RB Miles Sanders hurt his right ankle in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game vs. the Raiders. He was carted back to the locker room, so we're not expecting to see him again today. We'll update his status when we know more.

Update: Sanders has been ruled out.

Eagles TE Dallas Goedert has been activated from the COVID list. He'll be back for Sunday's game vs. the Raiders. With TE Zach Ertz finally out of the way, Goedert has top-5 fantasy upside the rest of the season.

Teams are calling the Eagles about trading for TEs Dallas Goedert and Zach Ertz, according to Fox Sports' Jay Glazer. Glazer adds that he "wouldn't be surprised" if 1 of them is dealt within the next week. A trade would likely increase the fantasy value on both guys considering they've been splitting work in Philadelphia.

Eagles TE Dallas Goedert was not activated from the COVID list and is out for tonight's game vs. the Bucs. We'll see if he can get cleared for Week 7. TE Zach Ertz is a nice target bet tonight with Goedert out and Philly likely to deploy a pass-heavy game plan.

Eagles TE Dallas Goedert has been placed on the COVID list. With Philly hosting the Bucs on Thursday night, Goedert seems unlikely to be cleared in time for that one. His absence would turn TE Zach Ertz into a low-level spot-start option.

Eagles RB Miles Sanders (chest) graduated to a full practice on Friday. He's good to go for Monday night's game vs. the Cowboys.

Eagles RB Miles Sanders (chest) was limited on Thursday, the team's first practice of the week. We don't have any other info on the injury, but the fact that Sanders was out there at all suggests he'll be available for Monday night's game vs. the Cowboys. We'll get another update on his status tomorrow.

Eagles DE Brandon Graham will miss the rest of the season after rupturing his left Achilles' tendon. That leaves Josh Sweat, Derek Barnett and Ryan Kerrigan as Philadelphia's top 3 DEs.

According to multiple reports, the Eagles fear that DE Brandon Graham tore his left Achilles' tendon in Sunday's loss to the 49ers. We'll see about the official diagnosis, but such "fears" tend to be realized.

Eagles DE Brandon Graham left in the 2nd quarter of Sunday’s game against the 49ers with a left leg injury. He left the field unable to put any weight on it and rode a cart to the locker room. We’ll watch for updates.

The Eagles released RB Jordan Howard. The 26-year-old has been a major disappointment since running for over 1,100 yards in each of his first 2 NFL seasons. Still, the move is a bit surprising since Philadelphia already cut ties with RB Kerryon Johnson. This leaves Miles Sanders, Boston Scott and Kenneth Gainwell as the only RBs on the roster. Sanders should dominate carries in this backfield, with Scott and Gainwell likely stealing passing-down work.

The Eagles announced Monday that they have activated S Rodney McLeod from the PUP list. He had been on it since the start of camp while working back from a 2020 ACL tear. His activation ahead of the team setting the 53-man roster points to McLeod being ready early in the season -- perhaps in time for the opener. Philly would have had to keep him on the PUP list if the team wanted to have him open the season on it.

Eagles insider Rueben Frank expects RB Kenneth Gainwell to play "a lot" this year. He got off to a slow start in camp but has seemingly gotten rolling lately. He had a nice preseason, capped by a 5-32-1 rushing line and 4-27 receiving line in Friday night's finale. We'll see exactly how Gainwell fits in a backfield that also includes Miles Sanders and Boston Scott. The rookie is just a late-round flier in drafts but could be a drain on Sanders' fantasy production.

The Jaguars have traded QB Gardner Minshew to the Eagles for a conditional 2022 sixth-round draft pick. Philly also released QB Nick Mullens, positioning Minshew as at least the 3rd QB on the depth chart. He'll need only to work past Joe Flacco to become Jalen Hurts' backup. That's a nice spot for the 25-year-old Minshew, whose rookie contract runs through 2022. Jacksonville, meanwhile, has C.J. Beathard and Jake Luton around as backups to Trevor Lawrence.

Eagles TE Dallas Goedert "is quietly having an outstanding training camp," insider Eliot Shorr-Parks writes. Goedert is reportedly leading the team in catches (39), targets (46) and TDs (6) in practices. He's been slipping in drafts lately as it looks more and more like TE Zach Ertz will remain with the team -- and play a sizable role. But Goedert remains the Eagles' biggest TE talent and even has a shot to lead the team in targets this season. He's at least a lower-end TE1 and still has upside into the top 6 at the position.

Eagles QB Jalen Hurts returned to practice on Sunday. He was a late scratch for Thursday night's preseason game vs. the Patriots due to a stomach infection. It should be a non-issue going forward.

Eagles QB Jalen Hurts missed Thursday night's game against the Patriots with what's been diagnosed as a stomach infection, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Hurts was reportedly told to rest at home for 2 days. Beyond that, he should be good to go. We'll pass along any further upsdates.

The Eagles announced just before Thursday night's game against the Patriots that they would hold QB Jalen Hurts out because of illness. That gave Joe Flacco the start (and it didn't go well). This doesn't look like a situation that will affect Hurts' availability any further.
