Eagles running back Miles Sanders missed another practice on Friday.

Sanders was first out of practice last weekend with what the team called leg soreness, but the listing on the injury report shifted to his hamstring on Tuesday. During his Friday press conference, Eagles head coach Nick Sirianni said Sanders was doing better, but that there is no timetable for him to get back on the field at this point.

“You know I’ll never get into how long or anything like that or how bad. I’m not a doctor, I’m not a trainer,” Sirianni said. “We’re just being precautious with him. He had some tightness and some soreness in it. Just being precautious with him and we’ll see how it goes.”

Sirianni went on to say that there’s no extra concern about Sanders because of the time he’s missed due to injuries in past seasons, but it’s surely something they’ll keep in mind as they consider any contract extension for the 2019 second-round pick.

  1. he was always hurt in college also, better make a trade howie for a good rb and cut your losses here.

  2. Man…the “all or nothing” thinking has got to stop.

    He’s played 24 out of 33 games in the past two years, which is far from “always.” It’s not the same injury each time, which means it’s not a recurring thing.

    He helped them win games last year, and he’s only in his fourth year.

    There’s a role for him on this team. He doesn’t have to be *the guy.*
