As expected, the Eagles placed running back Miles Sanders on the Injured Reserve list Saturday with ankle/foot injuries suffered in the Week 7 game against the Raiders.

Sanders will miss Sunday’s game against the Lions, Chargers, and the Broncos. He is eligible to return for the Week 11 game against the New Orleans Saints.

The Eagles activated safety K’Von Wallace from Injured Reserve, and he’ll be needed as starting safety Anthony Harris is doubtful for Sunday’s game with thumbs/groin injuries.

Wallace started in two of the first three games this season, logging six tackles before suffering a shoulder injury during Week 3 in Dallas.
