UPDATE #3: Miles Sanders suffered a “painful sprained ankle” and is set to undergo more testing.

UPDATE #2: Official.

UPDATE: It doesn’t look like the rookie running back will return against the Giants.

Running back Miles Sanders has been one of the few bright spots for the Eagles’ offense this season, but early in the second quarter on Sunday against the Giants, the rookie went into the medical tent before heading to the locker room. He was then ruled questionable to return with an ankle injury.

There wasn’t any kind of identifiable injury prior to Sanders being evaluated, and after he left the medical tent was seen jogging on the sideline. Despite grabbing his helmet, however, the rusher went to the locker room rather than back into the game.

With Sanders sidelined, Boston Scott is the go-to guy, and the team (thankfully) has Jordan Howard available, but likely as a worst-case option.

Which... isn’t great.

Stay tuned to BGN for more updates on literally the entire roster getting hurt.
