Eagles RB Miles Sanders (hamstring) still not practicing

The timing of Philadelphia Eagles running back Miles Sanders’ return from a hamstring injury remains unclear.

Ten days out from the season opener, coach Nick Sirianni said Thursday that Sanders is “feeling better every day.”

“We’re hopeful and we’ll see what happens,” Sirianni said.

Sanders has been sidelined since catching two passes in the Aug. 12 preseason opener against the New York Jets.

Sanders, 25, gained 912 yards from scrimmage in 12 starts last season. He missed four games in 2020 and five games in 2021 due to various injuries.

He has rushed for 2,439 yards and nine touchdowns and added 104 catches for 864 yards and three scores in 40 games (34 starts) since Philadelphia drafted him in the second round in 2019.

The Eagles open the regular season at Detroit on Sept. 11. Kenneth Gainwell and Boston Scott would likely share the backfield duties if Sanders is not available.

Eagles RB Boston Scott (concussion) misses practice

Running back Boston Scott is the latest Philadelphia Eagles player to miss practice with a concussion.

Scott, 27, reportedly suffered the injury during Thursday’s training camp session.

He joined offensive tackles Jordan Mailata and Andre Dillard on the sidelines Saturday with concussions. Wide receivers DeVonta Smith (groin) and Greg Ward (toe) and rookie tight end Grant Calcaterra (hamstring) also did not practice.

Scott rushed for 373 yards and seven touchdowns and caught 13 passes for 83 yards in 16 games (four starts) last season.

He has gained 1,491 yards from scrimmage and scored 14 touchdowns in 45 games (10 starts) over four seasons in Philadelphia.

Former Eagles, Falcons DL Ed Jasper dies at 49

Defensive lineman Ed Jasper, who played nine seasons in the NFL with three different teams, died Friday at 49, the Tyler (Texas) Morning Telegraph reported.

No cause of death was reported.

Jasper played four seasons at Texas A&M and was a member of the 1993 team that was ranked as high as No. 7 in the nation. He was in the Aggies program when it transitioned from the Southwest Conference to the Big 12 in 1996.

Drafted by the Eagles in the sixth round in 1997, Jasper played 17 games over his first two seasons with Philadelphia. He followed with six seasons for the Atlanta Falcons, including starts in all 16 games in 2002. He finished his NFL career in 2005 with the then-Oakland Raiders.

In 118 career NFL games (60 starts), Jasper recorded 250 tackles and had 17 sacks. He also forced four fumbles and had four fumble recoveries.

Report: Eagles C Jason Kelce’s 2022 deal worth $14M

Jason Kelce’s one-year contract with the Philadelphia Eagles will make him the NFL’s highest-paid center at $14 million, NFL Media reported Friday.

The four-time All-Pro confirmed Thursday that he is coming back for a 12th season.

Detroit Lions center Frank Ragnow earns an average of $13.5 million per season.

Kelce, 34, announced his return in a 63-second video that began with him pouring himself a beer from a keg tap.

“I’m definitely not retiring from playing for the Philadelphia Eagles,” Kelce said in the video. “I’m having way too much fun doing that. I’m looking forward to another year, Philadelphia. And to all my teammates, let’s go dominate.”

Kelce earned his fifth Pro Bowl appearance this past season after starting 17 games. He has started every game since the 2014 season.

Kelce has 159 starts for the Eagles since they selected him in the sixth round of the 2011 draft out of Cincinnati.

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Gardner Minshew (10) hands the ball off to running back Miles Sanders (26) in the first half at MetLife Stadium on Sunday, Dec. 5, 2021, in East Rutherford.

Eagles could start Gardner Minshew again vs. Washington

There doesn’t appear to be a quarterback controversy in Philadelphia.

But while Jalen Hurts looks to be the No. 1 quarterback, he may not be healthy enough to play when the Eagles host the Washington Football Team on Sunday.

If Hurts’ injured ankle isn’t healed after the bye week, it will be Gardner Minshew lining up under center for the second straight week. On Dec. 5, Minshew threw two touchdown passes in a 33-18 victory over the New York Jets.

Minshew and Hurts were scheduled to split reps at practice this week, according to head coach Nick Sirianni.

“I don’t know what exactly is going to happen, just like I didn’t know last week exactly what was going to happen,” Sirianni said. “So you want to make sure you’re covered if one guy can’t play. … We’re going to do what we need to do in walk through, how we divvy up the reps. Like last walk through, both Gardner and Jalen got reps and we’ll do the same thing and we’ll see how everything goes (Thursday).”

The Eagles (6-7) remain in contention for a playoff berth and would really strengthen their case with a win over the Washington Football Team (6-7).

Sirianni added that key injured players Jason Kelce (knee), Miles Sanders (ankle) and Jordan Howard (knee) aren’t guaranteed to play but are improving each day.

“We’ll see how the week continues to go,” Sirianni said. “We’re hopeful for all of those guys.”

The Washington Football Team will be hopeful for healthy players as well.

Quarterback Kyle Allen has been added to the COVID reserve list although he could play with two negative tests. Taylor Heinicke had already been questionable with ankle and elbow injuries suffered in last week’s 27-20 loss to the Dallas Cowboys. Heinicke, however, was listed as a full participant in practice Wednesday.

“I threw the ball at practice, and the elbow didn’t hurt while I was throwing,” Heinicke said. “All around good news.”

Starting defensive linemen Montez Sweat, Jonathan Allen and Casey Toohill are all on the COVID list along with Matt Ioannidis and Kendall Fuller, among others. There are a total of 18 players on the COVID list. Chase Young has already been lost for the season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament.

The team will likely look vastly different for this crucial NFC East matchup.

“I wouldn’t say it’s insurmountable, but it will test your depth more than anything,” Washington Football Team head coach Ron Rivera said. “That’s where you get concerned.”

Washington still nearly pulled off an improbable comeback win after falling behind 27-8 to the Cowboys. The defense intercepted Dak Prescott twice and was relentless down the stretch before falling just short.

Another tough divisional game awaits.

“We have dealt with adversity all year,” Heinicke said. “Guys go down and other guys have to step up and play. We have confidence in all our guys. We feel comfortable with who we’ve got. It should be interesting on Sunday. We feel good about it.”

Washington will look for its third straight victory over the Eagles for the first time since winning five in a row from Dec. 20, 2014 to Dec. 11, 2016.

Eagles designate RB Miles Sanders to return from IR

The Philadelphia Eagles activated the 21-day practice window for running back Miles Sanders on Wednesday.

Sanders, 24, has been on injured reserve since Oct. 29 with ankle and foot injuries.

The 2019 second-rounder rushed 63 times for 300 yards and no touchdowns in the first seven games this season, adding 19 catches for 118 yards.

The Eagles (4-6) are 2-1 in Sanders’ absence while averaging 208.7 rushing yards per game. Philadelphia averaged just 116.7 rushing yards over the first seven games.

The Eagles host the New Orleans Saints (5-4) on Sunday.
