Eagles' Darren Sproles: Back at OTAs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sproles returned to OTAs on Monday after missing last week with a family obligation, Zach Berman of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

The veteran speedster returns to the practice field this week and should compete for first-team reps with newly acquired LeGarrette Blount, who also missed some time last week due to family obligations.

Eagles' Darren Sproles: Absent from OTA on Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sproles was absent from practice Tuesday due to a family obligation, Zach Berman of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

The newly signed LeGarrette Blount is also absent with a family obligation, so the Eagles are currently down two tailbacks for the second week of OTAs. Expect Sproles, who is expected to once again serve his regular scatback role, to return to the team once his obligations are taking care of.

Eagles' Darren Sproles: Returning to Eagles next season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

In a press conference from the NFL Combine on Wednesday, March 1, head coach Doug Pederson confirmed that Sproles will return to the Eagles in 2017.

Sproles entered last season as the club's change-of-pace back but became Pederson's most-trusted option in the ground game as the year wore on, as evidenced by earning 45 percent of the offensive snaps, versus 25 percent for Ryan Mathews (neck). With the oft-injured Mathews perhaps on the way out of Philadelphia, the team will look to bring in additional talent to the backfield via the draft or free agency. However, with bigger needs elsewhere on the roster, the Eagles could end up using Wendell Smallwood (knee) as their primary ball carrier in the upcoming campaign. Either way, Sproles will probably be slotted in the same scatback role that he occupied at the beginning of this past season. He finished 2016 with 438 yards on 94 carries and added 427 more yards on 52 receptions. He also scored two touchdowns each on the ground and through the air.

Eagles' Darren Sproles: Totals 36 yards in finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sproles rushed for 32 yards on nine carries and added four yards on three catches in Sunday's win over the Cowboys.

Who said that you can't teach an old dog new tricks? Sproles ended the 2016 season at 33 years old and setting a new career mark in rushing attempts. Often the scatback throughout his career, injuries, ineffectiveness and inexperience in Philadelphia's backfield led to Sproles taking the top job down the stretch. It sets up an interesting predicament in Philadelphia this offseason. On one hand, the Eagles can walk away from the $4 million owed to Sproles in 2017 with no cap penalty. On the other, the team would enter the season with little experience behind the oft-injured Ryan Mathews.

Eagles' Darren Sproles: Tallies 63 yards of offense in Week 16 win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sproles (concussion) compiled 40 yards and scored a touchdown on seven rushes, while securing both of his targets for 23 yards in Thursday's 24-19 win over the Giants.

Sproles opened the scoring with a 25-yard scamper in the first quarter, only his second touchdown of the season, both of which have come in the last three games he's been active for. Sproles saw limited work despite backfield mate Ryan Mathews' early exit from the contest with a stinger, but could be in line for a much bigger share of the tailback touches in Week 17 against the Cowboys if the latter's injury lingers.
