One of the few things that has been going well for the Eagles today is their run game with Miles Sanders.
Now, they’ll have to finish up this game without him.
Sanders went into the locker room early late in the first half and is officially listed as out with a hand injury. Sanders came into this game with a sore quad; he didn’t practice in the short week.
While the Eagles have managed just three points in a rough offensive first half, Sanders has 45 yards on 7 carries. That’s the one thing that has been working for the Birds in this 3-3 tie.
Without Sanders, the Eagles still have three other running backs active: Jordan Howard, Boston Scott and Kenny Gainwell. This is just the second time all season the Eagles have had four running backs active on game day.
Sanders, 24, has been very good since returning from his absence with an ankle injury. In his last four games, Sanders has 67 carries for 409 yards (6.10). He’s been a big part of the Eagles’ historic rushing attack in recent weeks.
Earlier in the first half, safety K’Von Wallace left with a hip injury. He’s questionable to return, as is cornerback Steven Nelson with a hand injury.
