The Philadelphia Eagles‘ rushing attack could be at full strength this Sunday against the New Orleans Saints. ESPN insider Adam Schefter just shared a very encouraging update on Eagles running back Miles Sanders.
Schefter is reporting that Sanders will be activated off injured reserve this Saturday. He’s expected to play this Sunday for the first time since the team’s Oct. 24 matchup against the Las Vegas Raiders.
Prior to going down with an ankle injury, Sanders had 63 rushing attempts for 300 yards. The former second-round pick also had 19 receptions for 118 yards.
Despite all his skills, Sanders has not yet reached the end zone this season. Perhaps that’ll change this weekend, though.
It’ll be interesting to see how the Eagles’ backfield looks now that Sanders is back in the fold. When he was on injured reserve for three games, the coaching staff relied on Kenneth Gainwell, Jordan Howard and Boston Scott. One of those running backs may have to take a back seat to Sanders.
Eagles’ RB Miles Sanders is being activated off IR today after missing the past three games with an ankle injury, per league source. Sanders is expected to play Sunday vs. the Saints.

Sanders had an excellent game against the Saints last season, rushing for 115 yards and two touchdowns on 14 carries. The Eagles would certainly benefit from a similar performance this Sunday.
Kickoff for the Eagles-Saints game is at 1 p.m. ET on FOX.
