Sanders tried to limp to the sideline but went down and was then helped off the field. It appeared to be a leg injury. 

After a trip to the blue medical tent, Sanders was carted into the locker room.

Before the injury, Sanders had 6 carries for 30 yards, including 5 for 25 on the game-opening touchdown drive. On that drive, the Eagles put Jalen Hurts under center and emphasized their running game. 

Nick Sirianni has been criticized early this season for abandoning the run too quickly and not getting Sanders more involved.

Coming into this game, Sanders had 57 carries for 270 yards this season. But he’s had double digit carries in just three of six games.
