Miles Sanders was coming off back-to-back 100-yard rushing performances before Sunday’s injury.
He missed three games earlier with a sprained ankle and the ground game still produced at a high level.
With Sanders out and Jordan Howard banged up, Boston Scott and rookie Kenneth Gainwell are expected to have bigger roles against Washington.
Sanders, 24, has rushed for 754 yards on 137 carries (5.5 yards per attempt) with no touchdowns in 12 games.
By far the most difficult, frustrating, emotional year of my life, I put my heart and soul into this sport, one thing about me tho when adversity hits I always respond, I love these Philly fans, I love my teammates and I promise imma bounce back from this.
