Philadelphia Eagles running back Miles Sanders was carted into the locker room after suffering an apparent ankle injury against the Las Vegas Raiders Sunday afternoon.
Sanders suffered an apparent ankle injury after making a catch off a screen pass and was helped off the sideline and into the medical tent before being carted off to the locker room. He was officially ruled out against the Raiders upon the game being resumed after the halftime break, the Raiders leading 14-7.
Eagles just took Miles Sanders out of the blue tent and put him on a cart. Headed back to the locker room. Not a good sign

Sanders’ status is currently unknown, but David J. Chao, an ex-NFL head team doctor, speculated what could have happened to Sanders on the play in a Twitter post.

Sanders had accumulated 30 yards on six carries (-4 receiving yards on one reception) before exiting the contest. It’s been a slow start to the year for Sanders, rushing for 270 yards on just 57 carries this season while racking up 121 yards through the air on 18 receptions.
