Let’s get it back to the Eagles with a hand update:

It’s the right hand. That’s the one with the broken bone, an injury he suffered in the second Giants game, back on December 26th.
Sanders didn’t play in the playoff-clinching Washington game, nor did he play in the Dallas game, which would have been a rest scenario if he was healthy anyway.
The Eagles put out their first injury report of the week on Wednesday, listing Sanders at a limited participant. Jordan Howard wasn’t listed at all and Boston Scott and Kenneth Gainwell are good to go.
We’ll see what happens. Not sure if it’s me being overly concerned, but ball security for a running back with a broken hand? Seems like something to worry about.
Here’s a photo from a few weeks back:
Nick Sirianni says Miles Sanders broke his hand and will be out on Sunday. Nick says they hope to get Miles back soon. He will not go on IR
