Miles Sanders missed the game against the Washington Football Team due to a hamstring injury, but appears to be ready to go for the Eagles Week 2 match against Los Angeles.
He was sidelined for most of the team’s training camp due to what was initially considered a hamstring issue, but was eventually forced to miss their Week 1 game against Washington.
The 23-year old Sanders had a strong rookie season in 2019, with 179 carries for 818 yards, scoring three rushing touchdowns. He also added 50 receptions, 509 receiving yards, and three receiving touchdowns for the Eagles, who ended their 2019 season with a loss to the Seattle Seahawks in the NFC Wild Card Round.
The Eagles are coming off a 27-17 loss to the Washington Football Team in their season opener, which saw their opponent storm back from a 17-0 Eagles lead in the second quarter. Sanders’ return will be beneficial for an Eagles’ offense that stalled in the second half against the Washington defense, with quarterback Carson Wentz being sacked eight times after scoring two touchdown passes early in the game.
Eagles’ RB Miles Sanders, who missed last week’s opener with a hamstring injury, said today that he's "100% healthy" and will play Sunday vs. the Rams.
