1. What happens if the Philadelphia Eagles lose Miles Sanders to injury?
Few Eagles are riding a wave of hype quite like running back Miles Sanders, who’s getting enough confidence to warrant him speaking of potential “MVP” honors in one of his recent training videos.
The Penn State Nittany Lions product is entering his second professional season with the hope that he can be the Eagles’ first true three-down back since LeSean McCoy‘s heyday. He’s even getting some lofty Fantasy draft speculation before training camp. Currently, he’s 22nd-highest in average draft position according to Fantasy Pros.
What happens if he gets hurt though?
It’s difficult to assume that every player will be able to avoid the injury bug, particularly someone of a small frame who plays the game’s most punishing position, but for the Eagles, not having Sanders could be detrimental to what they hope to achieve on offense.
Currently, the running back rotation behind Sanders features 25-year-old Boston Scott, Corey Clement, and a trio of undrafted free agents in Elijah Holyfield, Adrian Killins Jr., and Michael Warren.
Is that group good enough? Let’s explore this point a little further.
