Miles Sanders, RB (PHI)

Limited in return to practice

Sanders (hand) was a limited participant at Wednesday's walk-through practice.

After suffering a broken hand Week 17 against the Giants, Sanders was unable to practice Tuesday through Thursday last week before he was ruled out ahead of Saturday's eventual loss to the Cowboys. The Eagles were also down Boston Scott and Jordan Howard in the regular-season finale due to both residing on the reserve/COVID-19 list, leaving the backfield snaps in the hands of Kenneth Gainwell and Jason Huntley. Both Scott and Howard cleared league protocols Monday, and now Sanders is setting himself for a potential return for Sunday's wild-card game at Tampa Bay. How Sanders fares in practice Thursday and Friday will determine whether he heads into the weekend with a designation.
