Wednesday Media Updates
***The first practice report of the regular season forces teams to declare a specific injury and level of participation. Almost always, we learn that veterans held out for precautionary reasons in training camp truly had minor conditions and are ready for full practices. That's the case again this season.
Here are the players from Monday's Injury Rounds feature who fully practiced Wednesday:
- QB Carson Wentz
- RB Alvin Kamara
- RB Joe Mixon
- RB Kenyan Drake
- WR DeAndre Hopkins
- WR Allen Robinson
- WR Amari Cooper
- WR Cooper Kupp
- WR A.J. Green
- TE Dallas Goedert
All are currently likely to see a full Week 1 snap count and workload.
***Miles Sanders was in pads and went through a limited practice. Doug Pederson told reporters Sanders could see a limited Week 1 role as the Eagles exercise caution. All indications from the local media have been that Sanders will play. This specific note from Pederson raises some concern. If Sanders does not return to a full practice by the end of the week, it's a good indication today's comments for Pederson will prove truthful. If Sanders isn't fully reconditioned, it's a smart decision to limit his risk in Week 1. More on this as the week progresses and I'll have full gameday analysis through the weekend.
Thursday Update: Sanders was limited again on Thursday. Barring a reassuring full Friday practice and strong indication he'll see a full workload during post-practice interviews, prepare for fewer touches than he'd see in a healthier week.
