The Eagles got center Jason Kelce back on the practice field on Wednesday and another key member of their offense returned on Thursday.

Running back Miles Sanders was dressed for practice and going through drills as the team continued preparing to face the Lions in Week 1. Sanders has been out of action for the last few weeks because of a hamstring injury.

Sanders’ return to the field came after head coach Nick Sirianni addressed Sanders’ status for the opening week of the season.

“He’s getting better every day . . . We’re hopeful and we’ll see what happens,” Sirianni said, via Tim McManus of

Kenneth Gainwell and Boston Scott are the other backs on the 53-man roster in Philly.

  1. Good to hear but it’s time for him to step up this year, no more injuries. It’s a contract year for him They just added Trey Sermon, a bigger back we needed to go with Gainwell and Scott, two smaller backs but Miles has all the potential in the world to be a top RB but injuries keep holding him back.
