After Miles Sanders’ activation, the Eagles clarify their RB depth chart.

Imagine that the Philadelphia Eagles have the best rushing attack in the NFC.

They’ve averaged 144.3 yards per game over the last three weeks, third best in the NFL behind the Baltimore Ravens and Cleveland Browns.

Since that humiliating Week 7 loss in Las Vegas, Nick Sirianni’s team has racked up 761 of its 1,443 total rushing yards.

Even more impressive, the Eagles did it without their starting running back, who is currently on injured reserve.

Miles Sanders has been activated to the 21-day practice window and is set to return.

According to Sirianni, there’s a chance he’ll play this week against the New Orleans Saints.

If he looks healthy enough in practice, he’ll be re-inserted as an RBI.

“He has to practice and see how he looks,” Sirianni said to reporters.

“He’s definitely [in]if he looks healthy.”

He’s a key member of our team.

If he looks healthy, he’ll definitely go.”

Sirianni promised a more detailed update on Friday, November 19, after two days of practice.

Sanders is recovering from a sprained ankle and needs to demonstrate his ability to cut.

During his three-game absence, Jordan Howard and Boston Scott have carried the load – Scott with 181 yards and Howard with 211 – and should continue to play significant roles going forward.

Despite the fact that it depends on the situation, the first-year head coach does not believe in benching players due to injury.

“I know how good of a player Miles Sanders is, and I’m excited to get him back in there and get him some carries,” Sirianni said.

“And Jordan and Boston, as well as Kenny [Gainwell], did an outstanding job filling in.

“Miles is our starter if he’s healthy and ready to go.”

But that doesn’t mean that every – that every situation is the same, right? Because you have to be able to adjust in every situation, and each situation has its own set of circumstances and thought processes.”

Last three games, rushing yards:

Howard: 57-71-83; Scott: 60-40-81; Hurts: 71-62-53; Howard: 57-71-83; Scott: 60-40-81; Hurts: 71-62-53; Howard: 57-

The Eagles haven’t had three players with 40 or more rushing yards in three straight games since at least 1950 [as far back as @Stathead tracks individual rushing stats].
