Miles Sanders has returned to Eagles’ practice after missing 3 games with an ankle injury and the biggest question now centers on his role within the offense.

Jordan Howard and Boston Scott have battered defenses in the running game over the past three weeks, but on Wednesday, head coach Nick Sirianni confirmed that Sanders will return to his role as the starter when he’s cleared for game action.

This season, Sanders has 300 rushing yards (4.8 yards per carry) and 118 receiving yards in seven games.

The Eagles currently rank third in the NFL in rushing offense (144.3 yards per contest), fourth in yards per carry (5.0), and fourth in rushing touchdowns (14).
