Sanders (pictured) has been downgraded from questionable to out for Sunday’s game at Washington. He had been listed as questionable with a hamstring injury.
Also downgraded to out was defensive end Derek Barnett, who also had been listed as questionable and who also has a hamstring injury.
The Eagles downgraded Sanders and Barnett because they did not make the trip with the Eagles to Washington, a common phenomenon for road teams. If the Eagles were playing at home, they could have milked the uncertainty until 90 minutes before kickoff.
