Cleared for Sunday return
Sanders (hand) doesn't have an injury status for Sunday's wild-card game against the Buccaneers.
Sanders was a limited practice participant Wednesday and Thursday and a full participant Friday, after he spent the final two weeks of the regular season recovering from a broken hand. While the surgically repaired hand could affect the running back's receiving ability or even ball security, head coach Nick Sirianni said Friday that Sanders will have "no limitations" come Sunday, per Geoff Mosher of InsideTheBirds.com. The fourth-year back has competition for carries in the form of quarterback Jalen Hurts and fellow running backs Jordan Howard and Boston Scott, not to mention a challenging matchup against Tampa Bay's top-ranked run defense. Still, Sanders is the favorite to lead Philadelphia's rushing attack, which also ranks first in the league in total yardage.
