Friday update: Sanders got in another full participation day and was removed from the final injury report.
Thursday update: Sanders was a full participant in practice on Thursday, a day after being limited. This is a big upgrade and he appears on track to play in Week 10.
The Philadelphia Eagles returned from their bye and have good news in their first official practice participation report of Week 10. Running back Miles Sanders was back at practice for the first time since injuring his knee in Week 6. He was listed as limited on Wednesday, but it’s an upgrade from his DNP status in Weeks 7 and 8.
Boston Scott held down the running back work load those two weeks, and the bye week has given Sanders time to potentially get back this weekend against the New York Giants. The Eagles have two more practices, but a pair of limited workouts could be enough to at least get Sanders into “game-time decision” territory.
Prior to the knee injury, Sanders was averaging 6.1 yards per carry and had scored three touchdowns in five games. He’s a strong start if he plays this weekend, but there’s a good chance we’ll be left waiting for a Sunday decision.
