Notable players on IR, PUP, suspension, etc.

• RB Miles Sanders (IR): Sanders was carted off against the Raiders in the first game this season that Nick Sirianni appeared to prioritize the run game. Sanders’ injury isn’t season-ending. He’ll likely be out for just a few weeks. The run game has been heavily featured in each of the two games that Sanders has missed.

DE Brandon Graham (IR): Graham’s season is over with a ruptured Achilles. On the field, Graham was arguably the Eagles’ best defensive player in 2020. It’s clear since his loss that the Eagles miss his contributions as a pass rusher and run stopper, and the Eagles have not been able to adequately replace him. Off the field, Graham has unlimited energy and positivity, and he is a player that you just want to have around if you’re a head coach in the NFL. 

RG Brandon Brooks (IR): Brooks suffered a pectoral injury against the 49ers. It’s “only” a pec strain, as opposed to a tear, so while he’ll likely miss time (about 8 weeks, per Lane Johnson) on injured save, it’s not a season-ending injury. Brooks got hurt Week 2, so Week 10 will be 8 weeks. Nick Sirianni was asked about Brooks’ possible return, but no useful information was given.

LG Isaac Seumalo (IR): Seumalo was carted off the field in the Eagles’ loss to the Cowboys. His season is over after having surgery for a Lisfranc injury.
