Philadelphia Eagles Running Back Returns To Practice On Thursday

The Philadelphia Eagles have looked fantastic from the beginning of the season until now, and with two games to go, they are still the favourite to lock in the No. 1 seed in the NFC, and with such talent on both sides of the ball, they appear to be the favourite to go all the way to the Super Bowl.

One of the keys to their offence is running back Miles Sanders, who was just voted to the first Pro Bowl of his career, with 1,110 yards and 11 Touchdowns on the season, and after missing practice on Wednesday due to a knee injury, he officially returned today, making him a great chance to play in Week 17 against the New Orleans Saints.

With Jalen Hurts only returning to practice today, there's a very realistic possibility that Gardner Minshew will be under centre once again for this matchup, making Sanders role even more crucial, and if this team can get the run game going in the playoffs, they'll be awfully hard to slow down.
