RB: Miles Sanders

Eagles designated RB Miles Sanders (ankle) for return from injured reserve.

The Eagles now have a 21-day period to activate Sanders from injured reserve. And if they plan to play him on Sunday, he must be activated by 4 pm on Saturday. Sanders will likely remain on injured reserve through Friday, so we will not have an official injury designation this week. He presumably has a shot at playing but will be difficult to trust in what could be a part-time role against a tough Saints defense. Boston Scott's value will evaporate as soon as Sanders returns to the lineup, and Jordan Howard will become a desperation, TD or bust option.
