The Eagles had their third training camp practice on Wednesday and some new names were listed on the team’s injury report — including, Miles Sanders noted as week-to-week.

Dallas Goedert (upper body) day to day
Sidney Jones (lower body) day to day
Boston Scott (lower body) day to day
Miles Sanders (lower body) week to week
Fletcher Cox planned maintenance day
Most of these new injuries should be relatively short-lived if they’re designated as day-to-day, and Fletcher Cox taking a planned maintenance day makes perfect sense. Sanders being week-to-week is the biggest question mark, with Duce Staley earlier on Wednesday saying he expects the second-year running back to be the team’s 3-down back.
The good news, BGN’s Brandon Gowton is reporting that the Eagles aren’t too concerned about any of these trickling into the regular season.
Eagles aren’t concerned about these lingering into the regular season. Just trying to be cautious and getting guys ready for Week 1.— Brandon Lee Gowton (@BrandonGowton) August 19, 2020
This echoes reports about Javon Hargrave and Derek Barnett on Monday that the team was being overly cautious as they ramped up the padded practices and get closer to the season. Since they only got in pads about a month before Week 1, they don’t want to risk any unnecessary injuries.
