Okay, Philadelphia Eagles fans you got your wish. Miles Sanders is back.

We’ve kind of felt like this would happen, and now, with the news breaking at about breakfast time on the East Coast, we can say it a little more loudly. When the Philadelphia Eagles take the field versus the Los Angeles Rams in Week 2, Miles Sanders will be with them.

He missed Week 1’s game with a hamstring issue and has been day-to-day or week-to-week for what seems like four months. Okay, we know it hasn’t been that long, but any time without Miles Sanders seems as though it’s longer than it actually is.

Here’s what we have, courtesy of Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

The question if you’re a Philadelphia Eagles fan is will he be a full participant or some sort of decoy? The facts are as follows. Philly’s got serious offensive line issues, and it’s doubtful that they’ve been fixed in a week.

While Sanders is the most talented of the Eagles tailbacks, turning him into a workhorse may not be what the doctor ordered (pun intended). The debate will rage about how he should be used and how often he should be used until 1 p.m. EST on September 20th. Everybody’s got their opinion. Here’s ours.
