Sanders (ankle) was a full participant in Thursday's practice.

Even though Sanders' sore ankle hobbled him in the second half of last week's loss to the Giants and rendered him a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, the running back was adamant that he would be ready to go for Sunday's game against the Jets. Sanders' ability to upgrade to full participation in practice supports his optimism, and seemingly makes him one of the healthier members of the Eagles' ground attack. Top backups Boston Scott (illness) and Jordan Howard (knee) are looking iffy for the Week 13 matchup after back-to-back missed practices, while run-oriented quarterback Jalen Hurts (ankle) was listed as a limited participant for the second day in a row. The status of the quarterback in particular bears watching with regard to Sanders' fantasy outlook, and even if Hurts is cleared to start, the Eagles could look to scale back his involvement as a runner with an eye on protecting his ankle. If that's the case, Sanders could finally have a clearer path to the higher-value red-zone touches that have evaded him all season, as he's yet to score a touchdown in nine appearances despite averaging an excellent 5.2 yards per carry.
