Sources: Eagles Will Have Sanders, Jeffery Back vs Giants
When the Eagles return to the field on Sunday against the Giants, they will likely do so with a few more weapons back.
According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, the team expects both Miles Sanders and Alshon Jeffery back for the game with New York.
Sanders has missed three games this season, but has been a major weapon for the offense when healthy. So far this season, the second-year back has 434 yards, getting 6.1 yards per carry and three touchdowns. He has added 12 catches for 91 yards this season.
As for Jeffery, he has yet to play this season, recovering from Lisfranc surgery and then a calf injury. It will be interesting to see what kind of role he has when he returns, with the emergence of Travis Fulgham, who has 29 catches for 435 yards and four scores in just five games. Fulgham has taken over Jeffey's role in the offense, and paired with Jalen Reagor seems to be the future of the offense, along with Greg Ward, Dallas Goedert and Sanders.
