The Eagles starting running back says he will play against the Seahawks in the wild card round this Sunday. Miles Sanders hadn’t practiced all week but was able to get work in on Friday and declared himself “good to go.”

Sanders was forced from last week’s game against the Giants with a lower ankle injury and didn’t return but his MRI showed that his injury was mild. Sanders declared himself ready to go after practicing, so practice must have went well. There is of course a chance he aggravates the injury but all systems look to be go right now.

Sanders gets a good matchup against a Seattle team that has allowed 11 rushing touchdowns in the second half of the season, along with 4.3 yards per carry. As long as he’s feeling good, he has plenty of upside this weekend.
