NFL Network's Tom Pelissero calls Eagles RB Miles Sanders' (ankle) status "TBD" for Sunday's Wild Card game against the Seahawks. The rookie is scheduled for an MRI on his sprained ankle, so we should have a better idea of his status within the next 24 hours. If Sanders can't play vs. Seattle, Boston Scott would be the best bet for touches in Philadelphia's backfield, ahead of Jordan Howard.
Eagles RB Miles Sanders (ankle) was listed as a limited participant in Wednesday's walkthrough. The fact that he was out there at all bodes well for his chances of playing vs. the Jets this weekend. RB Jordan Howard (knee) remained sidelined on Wednesday, so he's trending toward missing Sunday's game.
Eagles RB Miles Sanders (ankle) is active for today’s game vs. the Saints. It’ll be his 1st action since Week 7. RB Kenneth Gainwell is a healthy scratch for Philly, leaving Jordan Howard and Boston Scott alongside Sanders in the backfield. We’re expecting all 3 guys to be involved today. Sanders should lead the committee but is just a RB3 or flex play vs. New Orleans’ top-ranked RB defense.
Eagles RB Miles Sanders (ankle) is set to be activated from IR and return for Sunday's game vs. New Orleans, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Sanders has been out since Week 7. We'll see which of Philly's other RBs -- Jordan Howard, Boston Scott and Kenneth Gainwell -- are active tomorrow. HC Nick Sirianni said earlier this week that Sanders remains his starter but that other guys will mix in depending on packages and game situations. Sanders is the best Week 11 fantasy bet in the Eagles backfield, but he's just a RB3 or flex vs. the Saints' top-ranked RB defense.
Eagles RB Miles Sanders (ankle) has been designated to return from IR and will practice on Wednesday. Insider Eliot Shorr-Parks believes there's a "good chance" that Sanders returns for this weekend's game vs. the Saints. We'll see exactly how backfield work is divvied between Sanders, Jordan Howard, Boston Scott and Kenneth Gainwell. It's a situation to try to avoid in Week 11 against the league's top-ranked RB defense.
The Eagles are placing RB Miles Sanders on IR for the ankle injury he suffered against the Raiders. That will leave the Philly backfield to Kenneth Gainwell and Boston Scott for at least the next 3 games. RB Jordan Howard appears likely to be elevated from the practice squad as well. We'd bet on Gainwell leading the group in fantasy scoring, but don't overrate the opportunity available. Gainwell trailed Scott in carries against Vegas, and the Eagles rank last in the league in RB rushes per game.
