RB: Miles Sanders

Eagles placed Miles Sanders (ankle) on injured reserve.

Sander will miss the next three weeks, setting up a timeshare backfield between Kenneth Gainwell and Boston Scott. Gainwell is widely expected to take on pass-catching duties -- he saw eight targets last week against the Raiders -- while Scott takes most of the early-down carries. Gainwell has far more PPR appeal than Scott this week against Detroit.
