Miles Sanders, RB (PHI)

Remains limited in practice

Sanders (hand) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice.

Since fracturing his hand in the Eagles' Week 16 win over the Giants, Sanders has missed two straight games and hasn't put in a full practice. He's at least taken a step forward in terms of activity as the Eagles prepare for Sunday's wild-card game in Tampa Bay, as Sanders has now turned in consecutive limited practices to begin the week. Another limited showing wouldn't necessarily close the door on him playing Sunday, but he'll likely need to upgrade to full activity to avoid taking a designation into the weekend. If the Eagles decide Sanders' hand hasn't healed enough for him to play against the Buccaneers, the team would likely turn to a combination of Boston Scott and Jordan Howard to carry the load on the ground, while rookie Kenneth Gainwell serves as a change-of-pace option.
