The Eagles hope their starting running back is able to return in Week 2 against the Rams.

Thursday update: The Eagles were back at practice, and Sanders was once again a full participant, per Tim McManus. He appears on track to play Sunday.

Wednesday update: Sanders was able to get a full practice in on Wednesday. This is a great sign for his availability against the Rams on Sunday. As long as he has no setbacks, it looks to be clear sailing for the Eagles starter.

The Philadelphia Eagles starting running back Miles Sanders missed Week 1 against the Washington Football Team, but his status is looking up for Week 2. Coach Doug Pederson expects Sanders to get some work in practice Wednesday, per Geoff Mosher of Inside Birds.

He will likely get the “limited” designation, but ESPN’s Adam Schefter is also reporting that Sanders and tackle Lane Johnson are likely to play this week:

After taking eight sacks and a loss in Week 1, the team will be more than happy to get Sanders and Johnson back. Most reports had Sanders close to playing last week, but the team decided to play it safe. As long as Sanders is a full go, he is worth a fantasy start against the Rams, who gave up 127 total yards and two touchdowns to Ezekiel Elliott in Week 1.
