Eagles Injury Report: Update on Jason Kelce, Miles Sanders
The Eagles came out of their victory against the Jets a bit banged up.
RB Miles Sanders suffered an ankle injury in the 4th quarter just after surpassing 100 yards on the day. C Jason Kelce went down soon after with an apparent knee injury.
Kelce missed half of the Giants game last week due to the knee before eventually returning. Nick Sirianni addressed the injuries on Monday, stating that they received positive news and Kelce should be fine following the bye week:
“Obviously, everybody holds their breath when something like that happens to Jason,” Sirianni said. “We got good, positive news back today on him today. I’m not going to put a timetable on anybody as you guys know, but we’re hopeful after the bye he’ll be ready to go.”
Immediately following yesterday’s game, Miles Sanders stated that he expects to be good to go for Week 15 against Washington:
“Everybody is dealing with stuff throughout the league,” Sanders said. “I don’t know what they’re doing for it, but I’m trying to get back each and every week no matter what happens during the game. I’m not going to let this set me back. I got a bye week, got an extra week, so get right and get ready for the next game.”
Sirianni also gave some insight into Jordan Howard, who missed the last two games with a knee injury:
“Again, I’m not going to put a timetable on anything, but we’re hopeful,” he said. “We know that his rehab is progressing and he’s doing better each day.”
Sirianni didn’t have any new updates regarding Brandon Brooks and also noted that Steven Nelson and Patrick Johnson will be fine after leaving Sunday’s game.
