‘MILES IS OUR GUY,’ SIRIANNI SAYS: LET’S SEE HOW THAT WORKS OUT!

By Michael Grimm

Eagles coach Nick Sirianni gave a shout-out to Miles Sanders as the team’s top running back.

It was earlier reported that he’d been taking reps with the second-team offense. Sirianni said it can simply be chalked up to the “way the numbers worked.”

“Miles is our guy, and we like to rotate our backs. But he’s the guy.”

Sanders said this season he is out to get the respect he deserves.

Last season, he had career-lows in carries, yards and failed to score a single touchdown. Second-year back Kenneth Gainwell figures to have a bigger role in the offense this season after scoring six touchdowns as a rookie. Although an efficient runner, Sanders’ ceiling will always be capped with a dual-threat quarterback like Jalen Hurts.
