The Eagles are getting running back Miles Sanders back in time for Sunday’s game with the Saints.
They activated the 21-day practice window for running back Sanders.
Sanders had 5 carries for 30+ yards against the Raiders, before suffering the ankle injury and missing three games on injured reserve.
Since entering the league in 2019, Sanders is one of only seven NFL running backs to average 55 yards per game and 4.9 yards per carry, but this season under Nick Sirianni, the star running back has been underused.
This season, Sanders has 300 rushing yards (4.8 yards per carry) and 118 receiving yards in seven games.
The Eagles currently rank third in the NFL in rushing offense (144.3 yards per contest), fourth in yards per carry (5.0), and fourth in rushing touchdowns (14).
