Miles Sanders week to week with ankle injury

It didn’t look good when Miles Sanders was carted to the training room in the second quarter of Sunday’s game, but Sanders avoided a major injury.

Eagles coach Nick Sirianni said Monday the running back is unlikely to play this week, but the team isn’t ruling Sanders out yet.

“Miles will probably be down,” Sirianni said, via Reuben Frank of NBCSportsPhiladelphia.com. “We’re week-to-week with him, so it’s a stretch for him to be up this week, but we’re not ruling anything out yet.”

Sanders had six carries for 30 yards before his injury. In seven games, he has 82 touches for 418 yards, including 63 carries for 300 yards.

The Eagles used Boston Scott and rookie Kenny Gainwell after Sanders’ departure Sunday. The team also likely activates Jordan Howard from the practice squad for this week’s game against the Lions.

“We have Jordan on the practice squad as well,” Sirianni said. “We feel really good about him.”

  1. IMO Jordan Howard should be starting over the fragile former PSU player. When was the last time PSU had a running back make it through an entire NFL season?
