Sunday’s game between the Philadelphia Eagles and New York Giants pitted two of Penn State’s best running backs of the past decade against each other.

It turned out to be a bad day for Saquon Barkley, as his Giants lost, 34-10.

Despite the Eagles getting a big win, it might end up being a bad day for Miles Sanders, too.

The third-year running back left the game at the end of the first half with an injury, and now, reports say the Eagles fear that he has a broken hand.

The Eagles want to have Sanders undergo more tests Monday. If the hand is broken, he’ll almost certainly miss Philly’s final two regular-season games.

Sanders currently has 709 yards on 130 carries and is averaging 5.5 yards per rush in 2021. In 2018, when he succeeded Barkley as Penn State’s starting running back, he rushed for 1,274 yards and nine touchdowns, averaging 5.8 yards per carry and declaring for the NFL Draft after the season.
