Miles Sanders updates his status for season opener with Philadelphia Eagles
Miles Sanders enters his fourth NFL season as a member of the Philadelphia Eagles. After leading all Eagles running backs with over 700 yards in 2021, Sanders is gearing up for another key role in Philadelphia.
After battling a hamstring injury throughout training camp, his status for the season opener was in jeopardy for a while. Fortunately, Sanders indicated he is fully ready to go on Thursday.
According to ESPN’s Tim McManus, Sanders said he’s ready to go:
“It’s just one of those injuries you don’t want to risk it in camp, so I attacked the rehab and I’m back, ready to go,” he said Thursday.
Last season, Sanders had over 900 yards from scrimmage in 12 games (all starts) but did not find the end zone. Sanders had posted back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons to begin his career with 12 total touchdowns.
We’ll see how Sanders looks to open the 2022 season. He could be primed for a big year with the Eagles.
