Darren Sproles goes off for 152 receiving yards
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Eagles coach Chip Kelly knows how to create mismatches with Darren Sproles, and Sproles exploited nearly every one of them in Monday's 30-27 win in Indianapolis. The diminutive running back caught seven passes for a career-high 152 yards and rushed four times for 26 yards and a touchdown.

Counting his 25 yards on four punt returns, Sproles amassed 203 total yards. Sproles got going on the Eagles' second drive, beating linebacker Josh McNary on a crossing route and racing 57 yards. Late in the third quarter, Sproles bounced off three tacklers for a 19-yard touchdown run.

He scooted 51 yards on a screen pass in the fourth quarter, sparking a touchdown drive that tied it at 27. With under two minutes left, Sproles took another screen 17 yards to set up the winning field goal. It was a virtuoso performance by Sproles, who caught all seven of his targets. All but four of his receiving yards came after the catch.

He'll take on the Redskins in Week 3.

Chip Kelly: Darren Sproles will keep getting carries
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

After Eagles running back Darren Sproles ran 11 times for 71 yards Sunday, including a 49-yard touchdown, coach Chip Kelly reiterated what he thinks of Sproles as a rusher. "I think he's an outstanding running back," Kelly said, via ESPN.com.

"He proved it [Sunday] and it's nothing he hadn't proved from the first two or three days we saw him out here in the offseason program. He's really, really talented. You've got to find ways to get the football in his hands."

Sproles got 15 touches in the Week 1 win over the Jaguars, 12 fewer than LeSean McCoy. Last year with New Orleans, Sproles never rushed more than eight times in a game.

Darren Sproles in Philadelphia debut
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Eagles running back Darren Sproles had a 49-yard touchdown run on a fourth-and-1 play in the second half vs. the Jaguars and finished with 71 yards on 11 carries and 14 yards on four catches in Week 1 action. Sproles' 15 touches were surprising but still paled in comparison to LeSean McCoy's 27. 

Sproles will suit up with the rest of the Eagles next Sunday at Indy.

Darren Sproles scores rushing TD Thursday
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Eagles running back Darren Sproles found the end zone during Thursday's exhibition game against the Steelers.

With LeSean McCoy sidelined after the first two series, Sproles tooke over and scored a rushing touchdown from 1-yard out in the second quarter. He played the entire first half with the starters and finished the game with six carries for 33 yards and a touchdown, averaging 5.5 yards per attempt. He was targeted only four times and finished the game with one catch for 4 yards.

LeSean McCoy, Darren Sproles quiet in first preseason action
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

The Eagles didn't really show off much of their new-look backfield in Friday's preseason opener against the Bears, as Darren Sproles and LeSean McCoy combined for just five touches.

McCoy had just one carry for no yards and one reception for 8 yards, while Sproles added three rushes for 11 yards with no catches. We will probably see more of the team's plans in the next few preseason games.
