Philadelphia Eagles running back Miles Sanders will be out at least three games.
NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Friday that the Eagles are placing Sanders on injured reserve after the back suffered an ankle injury in Week 7, per a source informed of the situation.
Sanders suffered the ankle injury just 12 snaps into Sunday's loss to the Las Vegas Raiders. He generated 30 yards on six carries and one catch for -3 yards in the limited time on the field.
Sanders' usage has been the cause of much consternation in Philly this season, as coach Nick Sirianni has gone long stretches without getting the back touches. For the season, Sanders has generated 300 yards on 63 carries, averaging 4.8 yards per tote.
