NFL: AUG 12 Preseason - Jets at Eagles

Eagles running back Miles Sanders said in late June that he needs more opportunities on offense, but the team’s decisions haven’t been the only obstacle he’s had to deal with in the last couple of years.

Sanders missed four games in 2020 and five games last season with injuries, which makes the latest news about his health an unpleasant reminder of previous absences. The Eagles said that Sanders would miss Tuesday’s practice because of a hamstring injury.

Sanders played against the Jets in the team’s preseason opener on Friday, but did not practice on Sunday with what the team called leg soreness at the time.

The Eagles have not said anything about the rest of the week, but the nature of hamstring injuries would seem to make it likely that he’ll sit out this week’s joint practices and preseason game with the Browns.

  1. Between fumbling and missing games, it is beyond time to send a message and cut this. I’ll take my chances with Gainwell & Boston Scott ( who will be playing anyway ).

  2. Miles has all the talent in the world but can’t stay healthy. Look at his YPC and game averages, but he also passes the eye test.
    Here’s what’s going to happen, if he’s healthy and able to, Nick and Co are going to run him into the ground this year (last year of his contract), then let him walk in FA. We don’t overpay for RBs, and tend to select them in the later rounds (Westbrook, Buckhalter, Gainwell).

    If he was a 16-17 game player per year i could see him sticking around but he seems a bit soft imo.
